NCRA Regional Impact Statements and Research Reporting

The North Central Regional Association office is gradually gathering impact statements, now created by our national impact writer, Sara Delheimer, from all of its agricultural multistate research projects and coordinating committees. These impacts demonstrate tangible outcomes our projects have made to society. We are proud of our research and are excited to share our outcomes with you.

NEW!! Multistate Research Impacts website!

  • Effective 2/2016, all impact statements will be posted on the national multistate impacts page
  • Older NC impact statements by project number: Project Number Index
