Please Note: Our live sessions have concluded, however, recordings of all our webinars are now available below.


Due to Covid-19, this year's 4th annual MonDak Ag Research Summit was converted from an in-person event to a live webinar series. The series consisted of six Zoom webinars held every other week beginning in January. 

Each webinar featured a keynote speaker followed by three shorter presentations from local scientists with the event's originating institutions including: Montana State University’s Eastern Agricultural Research Center and the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s Northern Plains Agricultural Research Lab, both in Sidney; and North Dakota State University’s Williston Research Extension Center in Williston

While the webinars have concluded, recordings of all six are available here. The user-friendly URL for this webpage is:
