Our Mission

The mission of NCAAR is to conduct research and provide information concerning issues surrounding water use for agriculture and natural resources in the Lower Mississippi Basin (LMRB).


NCAAR aims to produce and communicate research directed at the conservation and sustainability of water and soil resources for agriculture that include: developing water-efficient cropping systems, improving management of water capture and re-use, improving water distribution systems and irrigation efficiencies, refining water-saving irrigation management options, and developing economic risk assessment tools that enable producers to identify profitable, water-efficient production options.
