Southeast gets agriculture grant from USDA
Southeast Missouri State University was awarded the Missouri Higher Education Partnership for Agriculture Relevancy grant by the USDA, according to a Wednesday news release. The two-year grant is worth $30,000 and will be used for improving agriculture and renewable resources teaching.
"As an example, students at Southeast will be able to take key courses in swine production from Northwest Missouri State University, and their students will take Irrigation Management from Southeast," said Mike Aide, chairman of the agriculture department at Southeast.
According to Aide, the grant also allows agribusiness to assist the faculty in developing courses that explicitly address the skills required by high-tech agriculture companies.
