The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and North Dakota State University will be among the presenters at a 13-state conference that will explore agricultural solutions to climate and energy issues.
The conference, "Growing the Bioeconomy: Solutions for Sustainability," will be offered through distance-learning technology, with keynote sessions originating at different sites.
Nebraskans can go to Mahoney State Park near Ashland to watch the UNL-hosted session and those broadcast from other sites. North Dakotans can participate from the NDSU campus.
South Dakota State University is a conference co-host.
UNL extension educator John Hay says the conference will offer a one-day primer in what's at stake.
