The U.S. Department of Agriculture undersecretary for research, education and economics Catherine Woteki, as well as Dan Glickman, former U.S. secretary of agriculture, will describe the current situation in world leadership in agricultural production and natural resources research and education

There's concern that world markets signal the beginning of the end of more than 50 years of agricultural abundance.

In December 2012, the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology called for increasing investments in U.S. agricultural research to meet growing challenges.

Woteki and Glickman then will join Philip Pardey, University of Minnesota Department of Applied Economics professor, as a panel to discuss what needs to happen now.

Ronnie Green, Harlan vice chancellor of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at UNL, is the moderator.

The lecture is free.

Heuermann Lectures in IANR are made possible through a gift from B. Keith and Norma Heuermann of Phillips. They are long-time university supporters with a strong commitment to Nebraska's production agriculture, natural resources, rural areas and people.

The lectures focus on providing and sustaining enough food, natural resources and renewable energy for the world's people, and on securing the sustainability of rural communities where the vital work of producing food and renewable energy occurs.

Lectures stream live at http://heuermannlectures.unl.edu and are archived at that site soon after each lecture. They're also shown on NET2 World at a date following the lecture.
