Sharing research results is critical to putting the "applied" in applied research. That is why atSARE, outreach and education go hand in hand with research support. SARE invests in farmerstalking to farmers about new innovations, project leaders showcasing results, and training ag educatorsin the latest practices. All the while, SARE itself is skimming the cream of its research crop forresults to include in its learning center of books, bulletins, online resources and other materials.
SARE grants require project leaders—from farmers and ranchers to universityresearchers and others—to include outreachinitiatives that ensure results areshared with the ag community.
