Where does the Land Grant University fit in today's fast moving ag tech industry?
Our guest for this episode is Dr. Jay Akridge, former Dean of the College of Agriculture and former Provost of Purdue University. Currently, Jay is back on the faculty in Agricultural Economics at Purdue
We had the opportunity to talk with Jay about Land Grant Universities and its place in today’s industry. With the changes in the industry from when the land grant system was created, the access of information from the industry as well as the internet and the speed the industry is changing, we wanted to better understand where the Land Grants fit and how we can take advantage of the resources available from all sources in our industry.
This is Part One of the conversation with Dr. Jay Akridge.
