Interview with Paul Mitchell
University of Wisconsin researchers are leading a new $2.1 million, USDA-funded project designed to help vegetable producers and processors get rewarded in the marketplace for producing their products in a sustainable manner. Scientists in five states will collaborate to create a system for reporting the sustainability of agricultural practices that will be credible to consumers and workable for producers.
The grant funded through USDA’s Specialty Crops Research Initiative, will be led by Dr. Paul Mitchell, Associate Professor in the University of Wisconsin Dept. of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
