Thank you for your continued support of the efforts to introduce and commercialize sugar cane.
Yes, I have a dream for Valley agriculture. It includes new crop development and renewable energy. It culminates in the goal of business creation and economic development.
To achieve that goal will require a massive undertaking, involve numerous groups and take a significant investment in time, and money.
The sugar cane research project has enjoyed support from a number of groups and businesses. I would like to thank those who have contributed funds, equipment and technical support. They include Imperial County, Imperial Irrigation District, Holly Sugar, Rain for Rent, T-Systems, Western Farm Service, Advanced Crop Technologies, Desert Valley Ag Services and numerous producers. Their contributions have enabled us to make substantial research progress.
