  • Enhance the evidence of horticultural products as natural solutions through active experimentation, testing and demonstration
  • Utilize new technologies and techniques across crops to create production efficiencies
  • Develop new practices for circular economy in horticulture by utilizing waste streams on the farm or transforming into value-added products
