PMN Welcomes Newest Societal Partner





PMN is happy to announce it's newest societal partner, the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS). Founded in 1903,  ASHS is the largest organization dedicated to advancing all facets of horticultural research, education, and application. ASHS members (researchers, faculty and other educational personnel, extension agents, federal and state experiment station representatives, growers and distributors of horticultural products) continue to make significant advances in these areas, and are well-positioned to lead the rapid evolution of horticultural science into the new century.

University Partners Grow by Two

The Plant Management Network gives a special welcome to both Colorado State University and North Dakota State University as its newest land-grant partners.

Colorado State University
The Colorado State University College of Agricultural Sciences and CSU Libraries share support of the PMN partnership. The College is an international leader in agricultural research and technology. Our students join a team of outstanding faculty and staff working on vital projects such as enhancing food safety, rehabilitating disturbed lands, and increasing crop production. The CSU Libraries provide an important collection of print and electronic resources in agriculture, natural resources, life sciences, and other subject areas. At CSU, we never lose sight of the need to maintain agriculture as a productive and profitable part of the world's economy.

North Dakota State University
North Dakota State University addresses issues facing North Dakotans through its
College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources; Extension Services; Agricultural Experiment Station; and Libraries. The Experiment Station develops and disseminates technology important to the production and utilization of food, feed, fiber, and fuel from crop enterprises. To do this effectively, researchers in the College's nine departments work interactively with eight Research Extension Centers to develop techniques and technology for North Dakota, the nation, and the world. The role of Extension Services is to meet the needs of people as they adapt to a changing environment.
