Join The Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture through the 2013 fall semester at Texas A&M University as we bring a series of experts and discussion panels whose major contributions to the agricultural economies of developing countries around the world are now increasing global food supplies.
This collective of agricultural development experts, scientists and policy makers will review the overarching work being done to battle global hunger in a series of free seminars running Sept. 6 through Nov. 15.
