Agricultural and Applied Economics Department Loses 132 Years Of Educational Expertise

Farm Business Management Update, December-January 2002/2003

By Gordon Groover

The Agricultural and Applied Economics Department, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Virginia Tech, and the State of Virginia will loose 132 years of educational experience in teaching, research, and extension by the end of 2002. In October, 100 people helped the Department celebrate the contributions and service of five of its faculty.

The Department will miss these numerous professional contributions, friendship, and advice.

Future plans:

Thanks again and good luck to all!
