Student Post Competition at the NM Sustainable Ag Conference

We are soliciting Poster Presentations from students on research related to sustainable agriculture in New Mexico. Students must first submit their abstracts to be screened for relevance to sustainable agriculture prior to poster submission approval. Only one abstract should be submitted per student. For abstract guidelines, please visit the 2018 Poster Guidelines link.

Invited posters will be entered into a Poster Competition that will be judged by WSARE Advisory Committee members and agriculture professionals. First to third best posters will be selected and the respective students will be awarded a 'New Mexico Sustainable Agriculture Research Award' with cash prizes of $100 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third place.

Welcome to New Mexico Western SARE

SARE is a U.S. Department of Agriculture program that functions through competitive grants conducted cooperatively by farmers, ranchers, researchers and agricultural professionals to advance farm and ranch systems that are profitable, environmentally sound and good for communities. The state of New Mexico is part of the western region SARE program and is housed by New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

SARE's vision is an enduring American agriculture of the highest quality. This agriculture is profitable, protects the nation's land and water, and is a force for a rewarding way of life for farmers and ranchers whose quality products and operations sustain their communities and society.

SARE's mission is to advance agriculture through training and support of innovations that improve profitability, stewardship and quality of life by investing in groundbreaking research and education.

For 20 years, SARE's contributions to sustainable agriculture have been driven by, and dependent upon, crucial partnerships with some of the nation's most innovative farmers and ranchers, land-grant universities and other organizations.

We are looking forward to 20 more years of successful partnerships that advance profitability, stewardship, and quality of life through SARE's grants and outreach.
