Proposed by: Dr.Stephen C.Brown

Presenter: Brown, S. C., District Agriculture Agent, University Of Alaska Fairbanks, Palmer, AK 99645

Agriculture in Alaska is a truly unique endeavor with challenges and opportunities faced by no other state. The Last Frontier is a place that can experience 130 degree seasonal temperature shifts and a land where reindeer are herded on snowmobiles. This presentation will give an overview of Alaskan agriculture and a taste of the far-from-ordinary livestock, crops, and practices utilized in the Arctic and sub-Arctic. Covered in this presentation will be musk ox, yak and reindeer production as well peony flower and rhodiola root cultivation.
