About

The Production Agricultural Symposium is annual event hosted by students in the Applied Plant Science Graduate Program at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. The symposium is a full day event featuring advice from experts in the field, breakout sessions lead by science and industry leaders, and a poster competition for graduate students in production agriculture.

This Symposium is one of a series of symposia flag-shipped by DuPont Pioneer in collaboration with many Universities internationally. At our symposium here in Minnesota, we strive for an audience of those in agricultural production: farmers throughout the state and midwest, university students in agricultural fields, as well as industry and research leaders in Minnesota and throughout the country.

The Production Agricultural Symposium is a free event designed to promote interaction among student scientists, producers, academia, and industry.  

The DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia series consists of 65 events at various Universities on 5 different continents. More information may be found at https://www.pioneer.com/home/site/about/research/PlantSciSymposiaSeries/
