Plant Breeding and Genomics News: Special Edition Sustainable Intensification of Agriculture , 22 August 2013

Plant Breeding and Genomics News

Upcoming Events from eXtension









Animal Health Science. Plant Breeding and Genetics. Crop production and Management. 

These fields of study don’t receive the glitz and glamour of other programs in many schools, but training experts in these areas is crucial for the future of agriculture. That’s why, USDA Chief Scientist and Under Secretary for Research, Education, and Economics Dr. Catherine Woteki will answer questions in a Twitter chat this Friday at 2pm. EST to discuss how we all can keep the pipeline filled with promising students.

Please join us on Twitter tomorrow and use the hashtag #StudyAgScience to keep up with conversation. Please use the #StudyAgScience hashtag in all of your tweets. You can tweet questions, comments or just follow along. We will answer as many as we can in one hour from the @ScienceAtUSDA Twitter account. We hope to see you tomorrow at 2pm EDT.
