Congratulations, all, for your collaborative work on a report that many producers have come to rely on for the latest in agronomic news from NDSU.

In September we announced that Julie Garden-Robinson, Extension food and nutrition specialist, received the North Central Region Excellence in Extension Award. Regional winners went on to receive national recognition, so this week it was my pleasure to join in round two of the applause at the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) annual meeting at Indianapolis, Ind. Congratulations, Julie, for your “uncompromising dedication to excellence.”
