Guest column from AAES Outlying Units Director Dale Monks
Over the past year, Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station (AAES) Outlying Units staff conducted over 900 field and greenhouse trials covering beef cattle; row crops; and small fruits and vegetables across commodity and non-commodity variables.
Field trials provide dependable, robust data and are conducted at least three years, often in multiple locations. Locations may be within the AAES system or included in multi-state efforts to address larger, regional issues.
AAES staff appreciates farmers’ support of its mission to provide science-based solutions for enhancing Alabama agriculture through checkoff and other research funds.
