Congress mandates that researchers receiving federal funds must publish research results and distribute them to as wide an audience as possible. As one of the two founding research schools at UAF, the School of Natural Resources and Extension has generated plenty of research to report on over the last century. Topics cover a broad spectrum, from peony marketing to reindeer husbandry to the projected effects of climate change in the Arctic to the dynamics of forest soils in the taiga.

The SNRE Communications Unit provides the editing, publishing, and distribution activities to support the dissemination of faculty and student research. Publications are written for a general or scientific audience, ranging from the research magazine, Agroborealis; to annual variety trial circulars detailing the results of tests on herbs, vegetables, and flowers at the Fairbanks Experiment Farm; to the Senior Thesis Series, highlighting the research of undergraduate students.

The 252-page comprehensive bulletin is a starting point for farmers to look at if they are considering growing an agronomic crop. It contains information on small grain and oilseed variety testing done by the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, along with recommended varieties and production methods. The bulletin, which updates Bulletin 111 (2004), includes additional information on testing since 2002 and adds six new crops,— quinoa, chickpeas, mustard, camelina, crambe and borage.
