Water Management Research



Scientists and their teams investigate soil and irrigation water availability, water quality, water resource management, and methyl bromide alternatives in pre-plant soil fumigation.



Irrigation Water Management

 Develop methods and practices to increase water use efficiency and improve productivity

 Reduce negative environmental impacts of irrigated agriculture in semi-arid and arid areas  

Methyl Bromide Alternatives

    Develop chemical and non-chemical methyl bromide alternatives to control plant parasitic nematodes, soil-borne  plant pathogens, and weeds

     Reduce emissions of methyl bromide alternative soil fumigants
