Project GREEEN and the Michigan Alliance for Animal Agriculture

Learn more about recent research and outreach through two of AgBioResearch and Extension's flagship programs, Project GREEEN and the Michigan Alliance for Animal Agriculture (M-AAA). Funding from these programs supports one- or two-year projects. The findings from these efforts are often used to apply for larger federal grants, addressing challenges such as corn tar spot and dairy cattle health.

Connecting with farmers
