Forage Management in Nicaragua
Dr. Yoana Newman's Farmer to Farmer trip to Nicaragua was a collaboration between Partners of the Americas and FAVACA. Dr.Newman is an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida, with a specialization in forage production. The volunteer visited dairy farms and agricultural universities in Nicaragua to provide assistance and recommendations on improving 1) how forage grows, 2) forage quality, and 3) pasture management.
Dr. Newman provides a training in a non-traditional classroom.
