Collaboration and specialty crops
Rebuilding Nevada’s economy will take ingenuity, innovation and partnerships between higher education and local entrepreneurs. One area where the Nevada System of Higher Education is taking a leadership role is in the development and marketing of specialty crops. These high-value crops can be more water efficient than traditional crops such as alfalfa and corn, and can help diversify farm income. Despite the benefits and increased popularity of these crops, however, there has been little to no training available in specialty crop production for Nevada’s small farmers.
