An Academic's Approach to Testing New Products

There are always new products on the market suggesting better yields and better nutrient efficiencies. Both industry and academia are both tasked with trying to understand these new productions and make recommendations. Academia often is criticized with dismissing all of the new technology on the market. I evaluate what seems like dozens of new products every year, yet I have not found many that I can support. This presentation walks the audience through my decision making processes. What I have to consider when evaluating the products I am working with.
