NDSU Extension to continue ag economics webinar series in response to COVID-19


North Dakota State University Extension will be hosting a series of agricultural economics webinars in response to COVID-19, said Frayne Olson, NDSU Extension crops economist.

The webinar series began on Friday, March 27, at 12:30 p.m. Central time. The series will continue every Friday at 12:30 p.m. CT while the need for ag economics information continues.

At the conclusion of the webinars, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.

“This series is an opportunity to have continuing dialogue with agricultural producers, agribusinesses and those in the energy industry who want to understand more about how COVID-19 may impact North Dakota,” said Bryon Parman, NDSU Extension ag finance specialist. “Because the situation is changing rapidly, we felt it was important to continue to provide timely information and an opportunity for discussion.”

The webinar topics include possible North Dakota and regional economy implications, understanding current conditions and implementing an action plan, grain marketing information, spring planting decisions and the relationship between agriculture and energy.


The webinar presenters are:

  • Olson
  • Parman
  • Ron Haugen – NDSU Extension farm management specialist
  • Tim Petry – NDSU Extension livestock economist
  • David Ripplinger – NDSU Extension bioproducts/bioenergy economist
