The University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources’ Agricultural Research Centers extend CAFNR’s research to more than 14,000 acres across the state to meet regional research and demonstration needs of agricultural producers and natural resource managers.
To showcase the research taking place at each Center, there are numerous Field Days throughout the fall, as well as various other events and workshops throughout the year.
To promote how diverse the projects at the Research Centers are, and to highlight the strengths of each Center, the college spearheaded the creation of a magazine, titled, “Road to Discovery.” This is the third issue of the magazine, with this year’s publication focusing on a variety of topics, including drought, beekeeping and blackberries.
“Our Research Centers play a vital role in CAFNR’s research story,” said Tim Reinbott, assistant director for the Agricultural Experiment Station. “The three issues of our magazine share just a glimpse of the importance of what our Centers do, not only for CAFNR, but for the regions that they serve.”
Issues of the magazine are available at each Research Center. To view an online version of the magazine, visit: Road to Discovery.
