July 23 Cross-Pollinating Biosecurity Community Conversation

Zoom Meeting

When we think about ways to protect the health of animals, plants and humans, we are in the realm of One Biosecurity. Our second conversation this month crossing the boundaries between animal, plant and human health will be with agricultural economist Glynn Tonsor. He will discuss how economic research can inform policy to bridge the gap between private and public benefits in the context of agricultural biosecurity. Be ready to join the discussion of how these concepts apply to IPM and COVID-19 and more!
