NDSU participation on Multi-state Projects

Information on the process to request participation on a Multistate/Regional Committee

NDSU Agricultural Experiment Station faculty and staff participate in many multi-state research committees, committees established to share goals and results on research of high priority among state agricultural experiment stations, the cooperative extension service, the USDA, and other research institutions and agencies.  Examples are provided below.

NC-007 Plant Genetic Resources

Dr. Burton Johnson, NDSU Plant Sciences Department, participates in the Plant Genetic Resources multi-state committee NC-007.  Please see following link for more information on that committee’s recent accomplishments.
