Data from university research has historically been kept secret, with findings published as papers, not spreadsheets.
Yet in the modern age of data aggregation, this presents missed opportunities. Research can by collaborative, with previous research integrated with new findings to develop a dynamic and evolving body of knowledge.
In the age of climate change, we will need to work together as we learn the best ways to further sustainable agriculture.
Forage presents our findings as open source documents, contributing our data and the data we aggregate to the agricultural ecosystem.
