In New Jersey, when a devastating disease wipes out farmers'; fields, growers turn to scientists for help. "Fields of Devotion" follows the unique relationship between farmers and scientists as they work together over a decade to develop disease and climate resistant food crops.

Told from the perspective of the farmers and scientists in the field, "Fields of Devotion"; shares the detailed science steps for developing disease resistant food crops and that farmers need.

This is a story of hard work, collaboration and innovative solutions for a rapidly changing world. Presented in partnership with the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Mercer County and Sustainable Princeton.
