Kannapolis field trip: Sign up for a ride to Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies

The School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences is hosting a presentation at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis next Tuesday evening. And they’ll give you a ride if you want.  The details, from the SAES Ag e-Dispatch (http://www.ag.ncat.edu/agedispatch/):

Three scientists at the SAES’s Center for Excellence in Post-Harvest Technologies at the N. C. Research Campus in Kannapolis will be giving presentations covering their current research work on Tuesday, Feb. 15, at a program timed for and tailored to students and colleagues in Greensboro. Agricultural Research Program vans will be departing from C. H. Moore at 4 p.m. on Feb. 15, and returning from Kannapolis between 8:30 and 9 p.m. SAES faculty, staff and students who would like to reserve a seat should contact Ben Forbes. Following the three presentations by CEPHT scientists, there will be a quick tour of the CEPHT labs in Kannapolis before the vans load up for the return to Greensboro.
