The 10th Annual Southwest Ag Summit took place during Ag week, February 24th-25th 2016. Many people came out to take part in the summit this year. Every year, the industry is able to obtain Continuing Education Units for the licensed professionals. This year the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension and the Yuma Agricultural Center’s staff members came out to assist with CEU's. Also, our Associate Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Dr. Jeff Silvertooth, recieved an award from the Yuma Fresh Vegetable Association, at the Southwest Agricultural Summit for his role as a Scientist, and as the head of Cooperative Extension.
