The sustainability of agriculture depends as much on the natural resources required for production as it does on the stakeholders that manage those resources.  We collaborate with agricultural stakeholders to develop and deliver research-based information on weed ecology and management.  This information is available through Extension publications, presentations, workshops, and other activities.
