NCTA Dean’s Column by Ron Rosati, Ph.D.

The Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture has concluded its third week with nearly 50 students in the UNL CASNR Undergraduate Scholars Program.

Activities concluded on June 1.  We were sad to see our new friends return to Lincoln.

We’ve had a great time in Curtis and on campus conversing with the students, sharing Nebraska agriculture with them, and providing some outstanding basic skills and techniques for agricultural training.
