Research Project: Managing Efficient Water Use for Soil and Cropping Systems

Location: Wind Erosion and Water Conservation Research

Project Number: 3096-13000-007-05
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2010
End Date: May 31, 2015

The objective of this project is to facilitate coordinated research on soil and crop management for efficient water use, through collaborative efforts with Texas Tech University students and faculty.

Conduct fundamental and applied research on the causes and consequences of wind-induced erosion, and the interactions of plants with the soil and aerial environments; to develop wind erosion mitigation strategies and water management strategies that alleviate, delay, or moderate the impact of drought and thermal stress on crop production; to develop both short- and long-term strategies that conserve irrigation water by increasing the use of rainfall.
