Presenter: Dr. Stephanie Walker, Extension specialist, NMSU
Projects funded by Sustainable Research & Extension program (SARE) in New Mexico. The SARE program begin in 1988 and was designed to have farmers directly involved in designing and implementing farming practices that are profitable and protective of land and water resources. They work with scientists and extension specialists at land grant universities—like NMSU. Stephanie will discuss projects she is involved with in New Mexico as part of the Western Region (WSARE). Examples include soil sampling and analysis, selection of cattle genetically suited for grazing in the desert range, and weed and disease management in chili fields through natural biofumigation.
