In early 2014, RMF and Iowa State University led the development of a partnership that included Mississippi State University, Texas Tech University, Colorado State University, and the Soil and Water Conservation Society.
The objective of this partnership is to develop a unifying message in support of food, agricultural, and natural resources research. The first step in that process was to develop the report on “Pursuing a Unifying Message: Elevating Food, Agricultural and Natural Resources Research as a National Priority,” that was released at the National Press Club on December 5, 2014. The report and its release is envisioned to be the first of several activities involving different interest groups that will be involved in pursuing the uniform message.
