HARVEST Network for Agricultural Research and Innovation
HARVEST is a Research Coordination Network (RCN) that brings together scientists from various research disciplines to enhance the productivity and viability of small- and mid-level farms. We do this by linking systems-based research in technology, human factors, and sustainable development with education and practice.
HARVEST is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is based out of Virginia Tech.
