Over the next nine years the Center for Agroforestry at the School of Natural Resources will be analyzing runoff water from a dozen farms in Missouri.
The College is home to research initiatives that span all of its departments and divisions, and also the university, country and world. Mizzou Advantage programs — competitive assets that set MU apart from other universities — incorporate research from all over CAFNR. Opportunities at the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources go beyond the classroom, the laboratory and the field — at CAFNR, students can dive into real-world experiences through its student-run florist, bed and breakfast, café, ice cream shop and meat market.
