Research Project: Agricultural Systems Research on Tribal Lands

Location: Poultry Production and Product Safety Research

Project Number: 6022-63000-005-13-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2019
End Date: Jun 30, 2021

Objective:
Using big data to develop digital soil maps for agricultural resource management plans on tribal lands.

Approach:
Approach corresponding to objective: a) manage risk by matching agricultural systems with appropriate landscape positions for production of culturally important and healthy food products. b) ensure culturally important adaptation processes, embedded in traditional ecological knowledge are integrated with modern technology by building a platform to collate information (i.e., traditional ecological knowledge, digital soil informatics, and remotely sensed data) for the projection of the information spatially for agroecological use.
