"An obvious strength of the consortium is that each of the five campuses is located in different agricultural regions, each with its own horticulture production profile," said Dr. William Erysian, coordinator of international projects for Fresno State's Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology.
"Therefore, consortium experts can provide famer-to-farmer technology transfer on a variety or horticulture commodities that include orchards, vineyards, grains, fruit and vegetables," he
In addition to horticulture, the consortium also is a resource for advanced technologies
in irrigation and water resource management, animal health services, animal science, forestry, natural resource management and conservation education.
The Consortium for International Development
maintains a database of more than 400 faculty and industry specialists with international development experience.
Individuals, industry representatives and educators are encouraged to contact Erysian or Center for Agricultural Business director Mickey Paggi with questions or ideas of possible collaborative ventures involving research and technology transfer in agricultural business.
