WORTHINGTON — To learn what’s on the minds of farmers and others involved in Minnesota agribusiness, Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Gene Hugoson will host a listening session from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Wednesday at Worthington’s Travelodge, 2015 N. Humiston Ave.

The informal discussion will touch on a range of topics including renewable fuels, food safety and rising prices for food, fuel and other commodities.

Lunch will be available for those who register in advance by the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce, 372-2919.
