Crop Protection Network (CPN) programming is made possible through the many partnerships that exist between CPN and individuals at land-grant universities and similar institutions in the United States and Canada. The CPN infrastructure strengthens partnerships between individuals, states, and regions. It seeks to make collaborative outputs easier to brand and create a network of specialists who can support and mentor each other in their efforts to enact the core mission of land-grant institutions, providing research-based education to the public sector.
