Cassman, an agronomist at the University of Nebraska and director of the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research, will give a talk this Wednesday, June 23, at UC Davis.

Cassman's Wednesday seminar, entitled "Indigenous Soil Nitrogen Supply: the Foundation of Nitrogen Use Efficiency in Crop Agriculture," focuses on supplies of nitrogen indigenous to soil, and how they impact agricultural productivity.

The event will be held from 12-1 p.m. in the Mee Room at the Memorial Union on the UC Davis campus. Cassman will also be available to meet with some faculty and students on Wednesday by appointment.
