The National Institute of Food and Agriculture and the Soil and Water Conservation Society hosted the FY 2015 Agricultural and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) and the National Integrated Water Quality (NIWQP) Project Directors Meeting.
The meeting brought together scientific and conservation professionals to share learned concepts, innovative methodologies, and project successes. The meeting also fostered communication among NIFA program staff, project and co-project directors, collaborators, and graduate students to enhance understanding of complex water, soil, and agroecosystem science issues. Awardees were assisted with ways to meet project challenges and benefitted from sharing of new information, resources, as well as the development of professional relationships that may serve as groundwork for future collaborations. The meeting also helped NIFA staff identify success stories and impacts.
