Description

If you would answer yes to the questions below, then you would benefit from understanding biotechnology: 1. Do farmers ask me to predict the work-load consequences of making different seed product choices? 2. Would the farmers I serve be happy if I can help them slow the evolution of their pest populations? 3. Can I describe how biotechnology will develop to bring new approaches to addressing crop management problems in the future? and 4. Am I considered an expert in my community on the science behind our food production system? This session will provide a chance to explore several on-line resources that can be used to put an agronomist in position to expand their understanding of biotechnology and work more effectively as a professional.
