Advancing Texas: Dallas
Common ground: Bridging the urban-rural divide through agriculture
Panel Discussion and Meet-and-Greet
Texas A&M AgriLife Leadership and Stakeholder
Texas A&M AgriLife, Dallas Center
Tuesday, October 8
Agricultural challenges facing rural and urban Texans require collaborative solutions derived from the unique capacities of each. Comprehensive expertise contributing to healthy water supplies and natural resources is increasingly paramount.
Join Dr. Patrick Stover, the Texas A&M University System’s Vice Chancellor for agriculture, on Oct. 8, for a panel discussion on bridging the urban-rural divide in solving these challenges with agricultural solutions.
Already, Texas A&M AgriLife’s ecological engineering activities help to preserve water quality and rebuild important natural waterways. Our forestry initiatives continue to bolster urban tree canopies, which improve air quality and mitigate urban heat islands. At the same time, precision agriculture, advanced crop breeding and educational outreach work to promote consumption of healthier foods. Meanwhile, multidisciplinary efforts continue to seek new, sustainable land management methods that translate to protection from unwanted pests.
Join us to learn more about the urban-rural collaborations already taking place across the agencies of Texas A&M AgriLife, and explore our newest ideas for a sustainable future.
