Welcome to the Crop Production Systems Research Unit
The Crop Production Systems Research Unit is one of seven USDA-ARS research units in Stoneville, Mississippi. The CPSRU has a comprehensive interdisciplinary research program addressing major problems of crop management of Mid Southern US growers. It is the mission of the CPSRU to provide information on the development of: improved crop production systems; irrigation technology, agrochemical application technology; managing herbicide resistance, and addressing water quality issues.
Specific research programs include: Maintaining soil resources for effective conservation and herbicide management; Critical biological factors determining weediness in Mid-South crop production; Development of sustainable production systems and water management technology for the Mid-South; Maximizing in-field deposition and targeted spraying using pesticide application technologies for spray-drift management; Weed biology and ecology; and Development of sustainable integrated weed management systems for cotton, soybean and corn.
