Regenerative Agriculture Research

Friday, August 12, 2022

The Oklahoma Water Resources at Oklahoma State University is teaming up with Texas A&M University to conduct research on regenerative agricultural practices in Oklahoma and Texas. Entering the first year of research on this project, much field work is being completed. Regenerative agricultural practices being researched include the use of cover crops, no till farming and grazing of cover crops. Analysis will measure the effects of soil health including soil carbon, nutrient cycling, greenhouse gases, as well as water quality and quantity using rain fall runoff events.

 

In the Oklahoma panhandle, Goodwell as well as southwestern Oklahoma sites in Altus and Fort Cobb the effects on cotton production using wheat varieties as a cover crop are being studied.

 

Research findings will be used to create a model to evaluate regional water scale effects of regenerative agricultural practices. This model will best show potential economic impacts on individual producers as well as the area and surrounding communities.
