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

Location: Wind Erosion and Water Conservation Research

Project Number: 6208-13000-007-05
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

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

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
