The President of BIO, Jim Greenwood (l) and Chairman, Jim Mullen (r), made some remarks to the press this morning.
It wasn’t real easy but I was able to ask llinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich, a quick question after he cut the ribbon prior to the trade show. I think it’s interesting how agriculture is being integrated into this year’s conference here in Illinois so I asked him about the importance of agriculture and especially renewable fuels to the state.
The trade show here at BIO 2006 is in full swing and it’s huge. I don’t see how it’s possible to visit every aisle in 3 days if that’s all you did.
This week I’ve got an interview with Monsanto Public Affairs Manager, Mica DeLong. Mica and I talked about their Future Ag Journalist Fellowship and what they thought of having students blog the Commodity Classic on AgWired.
Rather than update the previous post announcement on this I thought I’d just copy the post from Domestic Fuel:
It’s National Agriculture Day. Time to thank a farmer for the abundant and safe food supply we have been blessed with in this country!
