2012 Northern Soybean Expo


Area soybean growers put together a strong educational line-up for the 2012 Northern Soybean Expo at the Fargo Holiday Inn.

 Former Iowa Ag Commissioner Mark Pearson shared his insights on Tuesday morning about what’s ahead for agriculture. Wells Fargo Ag Economist Michael Swanson also gave attendees his economic predictions in an era of unpredictability. 

 North Dakota State University Agribusiness Professor Bill Wilson is offering an afternoon presentation on changes in agricultural trade and marketing.  Dr. Wilson was named Distinguished University Professor in 2007.

 Roger Bernard, a policy analyst for Informa Economics,  wraps up the event with a presentation on farm policy and trade issues.  Bernard came to Informa with nearly 30 years of experience in print and broadcast journalism.
