The first-ever Ag & Food Science Exploration Day, a one-day event for local University of Minnesota 4-H Extension students, was held Wednesday in  joint collaboration between Riverland Community College and Mower County 4-H Extension.

This program was offered for all Mower County students and other area 4-H students providing students the opportunity to learn more about agriculture and food science technology.

In 2022, participants learned about areas including:

• Agricultural equipment and machinery;

• Commonly used fertilizers in corn and soybean production;

• Soil sampling and how fertilizers are applied;

• Seed corn and seed beans and how to read seed tags; and

• Remote sensing/drone technologies and more.
