AgriLife Research kicks off climate-smart project

Texas A&M AgriLife Research recently kicked off the Texas Climate-Smart Initiative, a five-year large-scale pilot project to work with Texas’ commodity producers to adopt climate-smart agriculture and forestry practices, assess benefits, and develop models for voluntary, market-based climate solutions.Howe serves as the principal investigator on this project. Her research program primarily focuses on soil chemistry and fertility with an emphasis on the effects of land management on the profitability and sustainability of agroecosystems and the cycling of nutrients and carbon in the soil. Rajan, the lead co-principal investigator, heads a climate-focused research program and has served as the lead investigator or co-investigator on numerous projects related to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.Howe, along with partners across Texas, leads soil carbon sampling for participants enrolled in the project. “This is a unique effort where researchers and extension professionals collaborate with producers, ranchers, and forest landowners across the state in implementing climate-smart practices and monitoring its progress,” Howe said.
