The Overcoming Water Scarcity Challenge Area aims to increase the efficiency of water use in agriculture, reduce agricultural water pollution, and develop water reuse technologies. This Challenge Area will target innovative research that includes, but is not limited to, developing water conservation and reuse technology throughout the production chain, improving crop and livestock varietals/breeds, creating improved agronomic practices, increasing the social and economic tractability of water-conserving technologies/practices, and enhancing the efficacy of Extension services.
