Though federal research funding has increased six-fold since 1980, public money for agricultural science has remained flat. Meet three scientists making advances in food safety, crop protection, and animal health, as they discuss their work and advocate for more funding in the federal budget for agricultural research. Food and drinks will be served.

The event is sponsored by the Supporters of Agricultural Research Foundation.
