Read the Fall 2020 issue of Grow magazine

After a brief digital-only hiatus this summer, Grow magazine is back in print with its fall issue. It’s also available online. Feature stories include

  • Of Mutant Wranglers and Slime Whisperers
    The quest to understand how certain plants form a fertilization partnership with bacteria is a long story with huge implications. And the compelling tale is still unfolding at CALS.
  • Let Food Be Your Medicine
    For three decades, Huichuan Lai has been finding ways to improve the lives of people with cystic fibrosis through nutrition management.
  • The Hype, the Hope, and the Reality of Hemp
    CALS and Extension experts are helping farmers find the best ways to grow and market a trendy crop as the industry makes its shaky but hopeful resurgence in Wisconsin.

Other topics:  COVID-19 and the economy, saving monarch butterflies, ecological forecasting, the genetics of autism, community-engaged conservation, an undergraduate on the county board, an alum takes on the pandemic, and more.

And don’t forget the Final Exam. Can you ace the test for a chance to win a box of cheese from Babcock Hall? Good luck!
