    I read a bout your research here:
    http://www.seedtoday.com/info/ST_articles.html?ID=123808
    and am very interested in utilizing the seed varieties developed and practices implemented during this research.

    Is the seed available for farmers to purchase? And are the practices used available in booklet form on-line or in print?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    How do we get in touch with the scientist and principle investigator named above? I am a crop modeler and agrometeorlogist of Iran which teach in Ferdowsi Univ. of Mashhad in Iran and every summer do some reaserch in WSU in USA.
    I would like to see if I can provide any collaboration with these guys.
