the Grand Island Independent Quotes: “Water is the lifeblood of the Nebraska economy and the state’s agriculture. The Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) at the University of Nebraska plays a vital role in water research, which helps to better manage and conserve that resource for future generations.
Ron Yoder, IANR senior associate vice chancellor, spoke to members of the Grand Island Rotary Club on Tuesday. He started with UNL in 2004 and has been in the vice chancellor’s office since 2011. Yoder also serves as IANR’s chief operating officer, with oversight of its three mission areas and responsibility for day-to-day operations. When he first came to Nebraska in 2004, Yoder said, the state was suffering through a drought. UNL has advanced water resource management since then.”
