MREDI-Montana Research & Economic Development Initiative


Agricultural Profitability, MSU: $2.3M

Researchers on MT campuses and the MT Ag Experiment Stations are 1) intensifying pulse and cover crop production on 4.6 million acres of Montana land left fallow between crops; 2) developing new/improved crops and practices such as peas with increased productivity under drought conditions and optical sensor-based nozzles for the precision spraying of weeds; and 3) increasing the adoption of precision ag technologies by helping farmers access data via an automated on-farm precision experimentation system.
