Across America, small family farms are racing against climate change. Unpredictable weather and new diseases are destroying the very crops they depend upon. 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.
