Our research investigates complex questions to more fully understand how policy, environment, and access to resources impact food production. Our students work alongside our primary investigators and industry partners to gain hands-on skills necessary for a successful career in agricultural sciences. We take our work seriously because we know our research touches everyone whether locally, nationally or globally.
