groups and agriculture researchers.
In the morning, the senator and secretary will tour the Red River Valley Agriculture Research Center in Fargo followed by a roundtable with agriculture producers and commodity groups at the North Dakota State University (NDSU) Agricultural Experiment
Station (AES). Hoeven and Secretary Perdue will hold a media availability following the roundtable.
Hoeven and Secretary Perdue will then attend a Collegiate Farm Bureau luncheon and meet with students pursuing degrees in agriculture and related fields. Later, Hoeven and Secretary Perdue will tour a sugar beet processing facility in Moorhead.
