Biological and Agricultural Engineering extension programs

offer information and skill-development to assist Arkansans in maintaining and improving their access to sustainable food, water and energy systems. Our pro­grams provide a biological and systems perspective to the state-wide extension team. Expertise exists in nutrient management, design and practices for animal manure management; farm safety, grain drying, storage and handling, web and mobile-device information delivery, modeling of watersheds, climate-change variables, and biomass resources; irrigation, water use efficiency, air-emission quantification for control and mitigation of air-pollution, poultry-house indoor air-quality; poultry farm energy efficiency, thermal energy-conversion, and residential energy conservation and efficiency.
