The ARS National Soil and Air Program has as its mission: to improve the quality of atmosphere and soil resources affected by, and having an effect on agriculture, and to understand the effects of, and prepare agriculture for, adaptation to climate change.

Program Priorities

In planning and conducting Soil and Air research, ARS will focus our efforts on several specific priorities:

  • Enable improvements of air quality via management and mitigation of emissions from agricultural operations
  • Develop knowledge and technologies for reducing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations through management of agricultural emissions and carbon sequestration
  • Enable agriculture to adapt to climate change
  • Maintain and enhance soil resources


Priority setting for Future Research in Climate Change, Soils, Emissions, and Agricultural Byproducts
