Keywords: community-based science and on farm research

Session Description: The advent of GPS technology and precision farming tools has changed how farmers gather information for making management decisions. It has also changed how farmers interact with scientists and allows for increased opportunites for community-based participatory research. We have gathered a group of speakers who will discuss their experiences developing collaborative research projects, at different stages of project maturity and across agronomic, crop, soil, environmental and rangeland sciences.
