More environmentally friendly agriculture practices are needed to keep the farming industry strong in Arizona, a report from the university's Southwest Center finds.
A $1.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy supports a UArizona agrivoltaics project that will examine how crop production and livestock grazing can flourish at existing commercial solar farms.
The Arizona Partnership for Climate-Smart Food Crops will promote climate-smart food production practices and help farmers reduce water consumption and carbon emissions.
Amid the call for drastic water-use reductions in the Southwest, Arizona agriculturists, scientists and water stakeholders will gather to explore future sustainability at the Water Resources Research Center annual conference.
UArizona researchers are part of a national team analyzing how the practice of growing crops under solar panels can best be implemented across the country.
Construction of a rooftop garden and solar panels atop the University of Arizona's ENR2 building is complete. The site will not only generate electricity, but also create environmental research opportunities.
A paper published in Nature Sustainability presents the first field-data assessment of outcomes of a multi-year study of agrivoltaics in dryland regions.
A project that involves growing plants beneath photovoltaic solar panels at Biosphere 2 is led by Greg Barron-Gafford in the UA School of Geography and Development.
UA researcher Greg Barron-Gafford is working in the area of agrivoltaics, which presents a new way of growing and sustaining plants such as chard, kale and onion in the dry lands of the world. With UANews video.
