The Plant Breeding program at NWREC concentrates on crops that fit into diverse annual and perennial rotations on small and mid-sized farms. Farmer participatory approaches and other innovative methods are utilized to improve crops such as small grains. Research is prioritized to favor producer groups and crops that are not being served by conventional research programs and approaches.
