Burley, Idaho: Volatile markets, product shortages, geopolitical unrest and extreme weather have challenged farmers and consumers alike. Ensuring food security is more important than ever, and agricultural research is vital to this process. There’s rising hope that the University of Idaho-led Center for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (CAFE) will help future agricultural viability.
Burley-based Redox Bio-Nutrients today announced a $500,000 gift to this groundbreaking effort.
“Collectively, we can move mountains” said Michael Parrella, Dean of the University of Idaho’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. “From the Idaho Legislature to Redox and others in agriculture, it truly is a remarkable partnership that will pay widespread dividends.”
This financial commitment is the latest support for the $45 million CAFE project, which, when completed in 2024, will be the nation’s largest research dairy and will have many other components to foster scientific research, agricultural sustainability and consumer education.
“Agriculture is at a transformative state of change right now,” said Darin Moon, CEO of Redox Bio-Nutrients. “We have to move forward through sound science that allows us to positively adapt and change. We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to contribute in a significant way, because it’s a part of who we are.”
