This webinar will provide a 40 minute overview on market and supply chain development for these new oilseeds, including a panel conversation with industry representatives who are partnering with UMN and AURI to expand production and use of winter camelina and pennycress. Presentations will be followed by a 30 minute interactive question and answer session with team of UMN and AURI experts.
