Our research program has consistently produced excellent, innovative, basic and applied technology in such diverse areas as plant breeding and genetics, weed science, crop physiology, soils, and environmental science. Although our faculty work primarily with agricultural interests in providing food and fiber, we also work on problems affecting communities and environmental concerns. Results from these endeavors have been instrumental in allowing the Arkansas farmer to remain competitive in the United States and abroad while preserving the environment.
Transferring technology is a large part of our service function. Services provided by our faculty and staff range from contributing at the national and international levels to answering local questions relative to the discipline. Attention is especially dedicated to serving crop producers, agribusiness, and environmental concerns throughout Arkansas. We encourage our faculty to put their expertise to practical use and to assume leadership and service roles at all levels.
