PROJECT ACTIVITIES

The outreach plan, on-going stakeholder involvement, and assessment of the research are highly integrated and based on establishing a diverse, authoritative advisory panel. The advisory panel will play a key role in setting project priorities, conducting on-farm research, and supporting outreach activities. On-farm research includes several on-farm trials each year where growers select specific components of the on-station research to test on their own farm. We will host field days and produce short videos to allow producers to follow the project’s development in the field research throughout the growing season.
