Research is crucial for informed policy. The VAAFM invests significant resources in research and studies to improve agricultural practices that simultaneously increase farm viability, and protect water quality. Through collaboration with key partners, we are dedicated to learning as much as possible through research, monitoring and modeling so that our policies and programs may best protect water quality and encourage agricultural and environmental sustainability.
Current Research Initiatives and Studies:
- 2017 VAAFM Report on Tile Drainage and Nutrient Managment Plans
