Problem Solving Through Partnerships

The Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture (YCEDA) is dedicated to bringing scientific research and industry together to find solutions that bring value to stakeholders by addressing "on-the-ground" needs of Desert Ag production. Donor support enables us to forge alliances, initiate projects, and secure grant funding to maximize the impact of our work. Those joining the Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture make a tax-deductible financial commitment administered through the University of Arizona Foundation. For more information on becoming a supporting partner, please contact us.

What I like about this is it’s a very quick, responsive approach to dealing with problems. When you have a problem, you can’t wait for the results of a five-year research grant. You need answers now.

YCEDA is an investment in our future. Our goal is to have a world-class research group readily available to us.
