Agricultural industries invest heavily to ensure that cropping and harvesting systems yield high quality, nutritious and safe foods. In addition to research, we also provide educational materials, small group trainings, and specialized outreach activities. Our faculty and Cooperative Extension lead certified grower trainings for the Food and Drug Administration Produce Safety Rule implementation across the state.
