Cross-cutting Projects

The following projects provide more detailed information for oilseed crop production that will be applicable across all of Washington state. Greenhouse, growth chamber and field studies will investigate weed management, soil fertility management, seed zone moisture and temperature requirements, and oil quality and composition of oilseed crops. In addition, economic analysis of production costs for each region and extension and outreach activities will be conducted for all regions.
