Authors of MWPS publications identify new issues, concepts, and technologies, then translate them into practical educational materials used by a variety of individuals, including educators (secondary, collegiate, continuing, and professional education), agricultural producers, agribusiness professionals, homeowners, landowners, conservationists, and municipal planners. MWPS provides the cost-and-time-effective mechanism for publishing and distributing these materials.
