EDUCATIONAL workshops for farmers to understand both the science and practical management of novel tall fescue varieties.
Rigorous QUALITY TESTING and certifying of commercial products, ensuring availability of live, viable endophyte in the highest quality seed.
INCENTIVE PROGRAMS to assist farmers in the costly but beneficial transition from toxic to novel tall fescue.
