Opportunity for grad students doing cover crop research

The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities is hosting an annual Production Agriculture Symposium entitled “Cover Crops: Economic and Environmental Management” on March 22, 2016, and we have opened a call for 15-20 min presentations. Graduate students and postdocs with cover cropping research projects are invited to submit 250-500 word abstracts by January 15th, 2016. Presenters will be provided with free admission, free food, and a chance to win a prize for being among the best presentations. We may also be able to provide assistance with locating affordable accommodation and funds for travel.

This event is part of the DuPont-Pioneer Plant Sciences Symposia Series and will take place in St. Paul, Minnesota on March 22, 2015. If you are interested in attending or submitting an abstract for consideration, please fill out this registration form at your earliest convenience. Presenters will be notified of their acceptance by mid-January.
