- Education and Training: networking
We held a statewide video workshop to link researchers, extension specialists, CES agents, and NRCS staff with Hawaii’s farmers and ranchers. A summary of the workshop is available. After the workshop, five “virtual field day” narrated PowerPoint presentations with a fact sheets were made available.
Project objectives from proposal:
Sustainable Ag researchers will improve skills to conduct educational programming with their clients Extension agents will learn to use a lower cost new visual medium for educating farmer/ranchers Increased integration of PDP and R&E programs at the local level Virtual field days and project summaries will accelerate the delivery of tropical SA information to extension agents and local farmers Virtual field days will accelerate the adoption of SA technology.
