Research Initiatives

The OWC promotes the use of registered and certified seed for better hybrid vigor creating better yield opportunities for agricultural producers.  Research efforts for better cropping and rotational management systems are also utilized to help increase micro-nutrients and soil health.  This also helps increase yield, and helps producers become more profitable while creating a safer more abundant food supply.
