Research and Technology

Research & Technology Briefs

Research in Texas examines water-usage efficiencies for crops in semi-arid climates, and a new web site links producers to useful farm energy calculators. These and other research and technology items are reported in this section.

Producers can "Get Paid for Stewardship"
