Media Moments (March 2015)

A key component of Minnesota's agricultural strength is the farm bill, but first farmers have to understand it. Star Tribune reporter Tom Meersman took a look at the ways Extension helps meet educational needs of farmers in his article, Farmers back in the classroom to figure out farm bill options.

Extension climatologist Mark Seeley contributed to a big-picture study of 23 signs of climate change in Minnesota on Minnesota Public Radio.

You can also look forward to spring with an article in the Star Tribune by reporter and Master Gardener Mary Jane Smetanka. The gardening story shares how Master Gardeners help gardeners determine what seed varieties work best in Minnesota landscapes.
