Together, We're Making a Difference
The global desert agriculture industry benefits from University efforts that are more focused on solving their pressing issues. The University benefits from new resources made available by private funding of their efforts. The environment and world populations benefit from more efficient, sustainable and productive agricultural production in the 40% of the world where food is produced in arid lands.
The center’s mission is heavily influenced by input we receive from our stakeholder groups. The University of Arizona will not drive the mission; rather, we will develop it from deep consultative input from our stakeholder groups.Dean Shane Burgess, University of Arizona CALS
