Technical Abstract: This project includes studies led by both USDA-ARS and University of Missouri scientists, with a goal to develop solutions to broad water management problems with application to humid and sub-humid areas in the USA and the world. Our interdisciplinary team evaluates and optimizes production systems for irrigated cotton, corn, and rice; evaluates the suitability of variable-rate center pivot irrigation; and evaluates the quality of runoff from irrigated cropland. We include both small plot studies and on-farm research with active participation by producers and crop advisors, as well as cooperation with other state and federal agencies. Some of the studies under MU leadership are reported elsewhere in the Fisher Delta Research Center Annual Report. Studies under ARS and joint leadership are included in this report.
