LINCOLN, NE: OCIA Research and Education (R&E) invites you to hear Dr. Donald Huber speak at their 2013 Annual Meeting in Nebraska City, NE.  He will be speaking at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 14th in the West C Corridor of the Lied Lodge & Conference Center.  His presentation, which discusses the impacts of glyphosate and GMO's on our food and its link to disease, is free to the public.

Dr. Huber received his B.S. and M.S. from the University of Idaho and his PhD in 1963 from Michigan State University.  He has also been formally trained by the U.S. Army military service in sensitive areas such as global epidemiology, national production capabilities and national security.

Among an impressive career focused on plant physiology, microbiology and pathology, Dr. Huber has taught at Purdue University for 25 years as Professor of Plant Pathology.  Professor Huber became interested in glyphosate because of the commonly observed increase in the take all disease of wheat following application of glyphosate burn-down herbicide.  In the early 1980's, he had established a close correlation of all of the known conditions affecting take-all with an availability of manganese to the plant and its physiological effect on resistance to this pathogen.
