Due to COVID-19, this year's 4th annual MonDak Ag Research Summit has been converted from an in-person event to a live webinar series. The series consists of six Zoom webinars held every other week beginning Thursday, January 14. All webinars air from 10-11:30 am MST / 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 pm CST and five of the six air on alternating Thursdays. The lone exception is a Tuesday session on Feb. 9.
Each webinar features a keynote speaker followed by three shorter presentations from local scientists with the event's originating institutions including: Montana State University’s Eastern Agricultural Research Center and the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s Northern Plains Agricultural Research Lab, both in Sidney; and North Dakota State University’s Williston Research Extension Center in Williston.
Recordings will also be made available here following the live sessions.
