University of Wisconsin-Platteville Pioneer Farm research demonstrates and evaluates management practices and technologies designed to help farmers operate profitably, while protecting and enhancing natural resources.
Research projects address environmental, economic, and social issues identified by farmers and interest groups through a voluntary collaboration among producers, regulatory agencies, science and education institutions, and non-governmental organizations.
Undergraduate and graduate students in agriculture programs at UW-Platteville participate in research and increase their proficiency in the management of resources.
