AURI and the University of Minnesota Forever Green Initiative are hosting a series of interactive webinars highlighting new winter-hardy annual oilseed research and development.

Winter camelina (Camelina sativa) and pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) are new winter hardy annual oilseeds in research and development as cash cover crops that protect soil and water while also providing economic benefits to farmers in the Upper Midwest.

Register for this first in a series of three webinars on these new cash cover crops in research and development by UMN Forever Green Initiative.

This webinar will provide a 40 minute overview on the breeding, agronomics and ecological benefits for winter camelina and pennycress led by a team of experts from the UMN Forever Green Initiative. Presentations will be followed by a 30 minute interactive question and answer session.
