The LADRC will serve as a comprehensive service-learning and training center and engage farmers and other community members with hands-on activities and demonstrations that provide real-time learning experiences. Additionally, our setup allows for immediate assistance and demonstrations for community members who have agriculture-related questions.  Lastly, the LADRC is the principal avenue for demonstrations, training, and disseminating technical innovations.
