Dean Wendy Wintersteen is leading a small task force to explore next steps toward agricultural research. On Feb. 3, 2015, she posted a message on the Farm Foundation website, AgChallenge 2050. “As the report states, connect the dots of every major societal challenge ahead and what emerges is the critical importance of food, agricultural and natural resources research. A unifying message in support of agricultural research may sound daunting, but it’s incredibly exciting,” said Wintersteen. “Here is an opportunity to think boldly about one of the critical issues of our time.” See the full article on Farm Foundation, AgChallenge 2050, and visit the Charles Valentine Riley Memorial Foundation website for the webcast of Dr. Wintersteen's presentation.
