PHASE I & II PROGRAMS
RANCH MANAGEMENT AND AGRICULTURE LEADERSHIP:
The Ranch Management Agriculture Leadership (RMAL) program proposes to increase the collaboration and ongoing development of opportunities and synergies with community colleges and their students. This partnership will support the development of a Ranch Management and Agricultural Leadership Bachelors of Science Degree, development of a robust internship program, creation of a framework for community college partnerships, and development of credentialed seminars.
The precision agriculture partnership will develop a joint precision agriculture program that encompasses research, workforce training and education, and extension and outreach. The use of precision agriculture techniques can increase crop yields, reduce inputs, improve soil health, and provide a vast economic return to our agricultural producers.
CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT AGRICULTURE:
The Center for Controlled Environment Agriculture aims to provide the controlled environment agriculture business network with ongoing support across the state to empower tailored, high-yield food production. This center will be a hub of interdisciplinary research for developing tools for the current corporations while creating new models for modular controlled environment farming chambers for providing fresh food for rural communities.
