REE Seminar Series

The USDA Research, Education, and Economics Mission Area (REE) presented a science and education seminar series featuring the themes of agricultural science and technology with an emphasis on sustainability issues relating to the environment, economic viability, and rural development. NIFA hosted the seminar series, which was cosponsored by the USDA Office of Energy Policy and New Uses.
 
The seminars spotlighted agriculturally-related energy alternatives and the impact these alternatives could have on agriculture viability and sustainability.  Recurring themes were agricultural science and technology; cutting edge research, education, and economics; and social, environmental, and economic sustainability. Other topics included new and improved ways to use and manage natural resources, as well as educational programs that teach best management practices to enhance environmental and economic benefits and human well-being.
