Agricultural Extension, State Departments of Agriculture or Health, and other organizations work, often independently, to meet the needs of farmers within their areas. By virtue of a moderate level of collaborative effort, these independent products could be inter-compatible in a way that would meet farmer needs regionally or even nationally. In particular, farmers that are near state borders may benefit from having access to lab availability in-formation from states on both sides of the border. The procedure used by Michigan State University Extension to build a database-driven Google Map of water labs, outlined in this resource document, is one way to begin working collaboratively to fulfill this vision.
