Washington agriculture is highly diverse, mirroring the diverse landscapes of the state that range from mild and humid coastal plains to temperate desert and the rolling hills of the Palouse. Our faculty incorporates basic and applied research programs and works collaboratively to solve many of the complex issues surrounding Washington’s diverse production agriculture. We work closely with the state’s stakeholder groups to identify the constraints on production systems at state, national, and global levels.  Using the research, teaching, and extension programs of the University’s land grant mission, our goal is to research and present solutions to our stakeholders that will increase the economic return and sustainability of different production systems.
