The article reports on the priority of Cereal Crops Research Institute (CCRI) on farm research to work on specific needs of producers in the U.S. It mentions that scientists from AgriLife Research and Extension, and Texas A&M University (TAMU)-Commerce conduct research on farms rented by CCRI which attracts some studies and spreads the risk of adverse weather. An overview on herbicide research is also presented which requires planting different types of weeds for test purposes.
