Retooling Agriculture
A Report on Direct-Seed Cropping Systems Research in the Pacific Northwest

This new Pacific Northwest Extension bulletin (PNW553) was developed by a 14-member Steering Committee of the Pacific Northwest Direct-Seed Cropping System Coalition led by Dr. R. James Cook, WSU Endowed Chair in Wheat Research. The full-color 42-page publication describes the breadth and depth of public and private research and extension programs to facilitate the transition to direct-seed cropping in the dryland farming areas of the Pacific Northwest. Topics include economics, equipment, soil biology/quality and fertility, pest management, variety development, and alternate crops. It is fresh off the press --- published in December 2001.
