The University of Minnesota’s Applied Plant Sciences Graduate Program will host the fifth annual Production Agriculture Symposium Feb. 15 at the Continuing Education and Conference Center on the St. Paul campus.
The symposium, which runs from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., will highlight climate impacts on agriculture management.
Registration is free with lunch provided. Certified crop consultant continuing education units also will be available for certified crop advisers.
The symposium aims to bring together researchers, producers, industry, students and various other professionals to share and discuss strategies for farming and production in an ever-changing climate.
Climate and agricultural experts Jerry Hatfield of USDA-Agricultural Research Service, Charles Rice of Kansas State University and Christopher Kucharik of University of Wisconsin will present on the industry’s latest strategies for agricultural and soil management in a changing climate.

In addition, there will be breakout sessions with researcher presentations, a poster session with prizes, an exhibitor section and a networking hour to close the event.
