About Us

The Desert Farming Initiative (DFI) began in 2013, and is a collaboration between two key groups: University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) College of Business, College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources & UNR Cooperative Extension. Operating out of two sites in Reno on 920 Valley Road and 5895 Clean Water Way, DFI is composed of heated greenhouses, hoop houses, vineyard, and commercial wash station.
