STEEP Research Review Rescheduled for February, 2006
The STEEP coordinating committee has rescheduled the STEEP research review for February 22-23, 2006 (previously advertised as November, 2005). The program will be held at the AmeriSuites Hotel (at the TRAC) in Pasco, Washington.
The STEEP Research Review has three objectives:
- Bring together STEEP researchers to discuss and evaluate current research programs
- Build a sense of community and understanding of current cropping systems among scientists, growers, industry and agencies
- Provide a stakeholder forum to identify research priorities and focus for STEEP in future years.
The STEEP Review will feature presentations by investigators who have recently completed STEEP research projects and by those involved in long-term projects. There will be time for question and discussion of the research. There also will be formal time on the agenda with growers, commodity organizations, industry, conservation districts and other agencies to determine future direction and priorities for STEEP.
Please watch the STEEP website http://pnwsteep.wsu.edu for further details.
Additionally, in December 2004 the STEEP coordinating committee determined that planning and organization of the cropping systems conference should be passed to the Pacific Northwest Direct Seed Association. This change will occur with the 2006 conference as noted below.
