Mission Statement



Develop and evaluate management practices and treatment technologies that protect water quality, reduce air emissions, and control pathogens at animal production facilities, manure storage areas, and field application sites. 


The unit CRIS is 70% NP206 and 30% NP201.

The ARS in Bowling Green KY is in partnership with Western Kentucky University, working jointly on research activities related to animal waste management.


The unit will conduct solution-oriented research that aids in cost effectively solving problems associated with animal waste in an environmentally sound manner considering the unique problems associated with the geological “karst” topography.
