Asher Wright ’08: American Forage and Grassland Council’s Emerging Scientist of 2013

ENS/Sust. Ag. graduate Asher Wright ’08 will visit our campus on Wednesday, April 17. Asher has just completed a master’s degree program at Clemson focused on pasture-based beef production. He has won national recognition for this work and was named the American Forage and Grassland Council’s Emerging Scientist of 2013.

Asher will give a diverse evening program in Canon from 6:30-7:30 p.m. He will share a bit about his master’s research and his experience of life in graduate school, and present his work as a founder of the successful non-profit A Growing Culture, the first global farmer-to-farmer information exchange.
