The primary program areas and initiatives are to establish an active extension and outreach program that disseminates research-based results and addresses clientele concerns related to:

  • Development and operation of irrigation systems
  • Efficient use of irrigation systems
  • Irrigation scheduling

These program areas were addressed under the umbrella of the Smart Technologies for Agricultural Management and Production (STAMP) program initiated in 2014. The program encompasses all research and extension activities related to LSU AgCenter irrigation water management. This includes plot studies, on-farm demonstrations, workshops, trainings, presentations, publications, and all other products associated with education and outreach.
