Team discussing research
Teamwork is a component of any successful research program. AFSRC has a multidisciplinary team of scientists and a technical staff with varied sets of knowledge and skills. The multidisciplinary nature of AFSRC personnel provides the flexibility to assemble teams that can most efficiently conduct research and solve problems affecting Appalachian agriculture, the environment, and rural issues. In this picture Dr. Douglas Boyer, Hydrologist, is teamed with Derek Hall, Physical Science Technician, and Laura Cooper, Biological Science Technician, for studying issues related to hillslope hydrology, livestock grazing, and water quality. This team works with a broader team of scientists and technical staff assembled to design environmentally benign grazing management practices, which capitalize on the dynamics of herbage growth in complex terrain.
