CASI's Jeff Mitchell was invited to meet with eight researchers of the Rothamsted Research facility in Great Britain as part of a research exchange program organized by the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Davis along with several other campus researchers on March 17, 2022. Rothamsted Research is the longest-running agricultural research institution in the world. Its foundation dates from 1843. The exchange was hosted by the Global Exchange Office at UC Davis and involved individual presentations and follow-up discussions between UC Davis researchers and the Rothamsted Research visitors. Mitchell was asked to present a discussion on the topic of "Cooperative Extension in California" and shared several aspects of our CASI Center as well as the historical background of Cooperative Extension, the land-grant university, and the agricultural experiment station system in the United States.
