The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences finds ways to preserve our natural resources and improve lives and communities worldwide.
SmartFarm Innovation Network
Harnessing technology to drive future economies
Create a decentralized network of interconnected centers across the commonwealth where Virginia Tech's interdisciplinary researchers and Virginia Cooperative Extension specialists can partner with industries to develop and deploy innovative technologies to increase overall efficiency, resilience, and sustainability of food, agricultural, and natural resources production systems.
We dig deeper, seek higher, reach farther than ever before ... not because we can, but because we must. We are the Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
