President Castro highlights agriculturePresident Joseph I. Castro has displayed his support of agricultural innovation at Fresno State through the establishment of a Presidential Commission on the Future of Agriculture. The commission includes agribusiness and industry leaders from throughout the San Joaquin Valley, plus university representatives. Castro has asked the commission to assess industry needs and make recommendations to him regarding how Fresno State’s agricultural programs – defined to include intersections with science, math, engineering, business and other areas – can be among the very best in the nation and world. (For more on this and other initiatives, see Fresno State News article.)
