During the Fall of 2017, Minnesota Extension Post-doc Associate, Theresa Cira, worked with Extension Entomology Professors, Bob Koch and Marla Spivak, to host discussions on campus with leaders from the MN Commercial Beekeepers, and MN Corn and MN Soybean growers, to discuss areas of "common ground" as these industries strive to better understand their specific goals and challenges. The following two publications resulted from this meeting."
