The Desert Farming Initiative (DFI) is a collaboration between the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources, Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station (NAES), and Cooperative Extension. DFI is a diversified commercial farm at UNR which serves as a demonstration, education, outreach, and research farming program. The program is comprised of multiple hoop houses, greenhouses, the capacity to produce 12 acres of row crops, and a 2-acre vineyard. Currently there is a variety of fruits and vegetables grown for commercial sale to local wholesale and retail markets across the greater Reno area. DFI supports student hands-on learning, UNR research, demonstration of desert crop production, and outreach to the agricultural industry.
