Abstract: SOURCE: College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) Database, Texas Tech University http://www.depts.ttu.edu/agriculturalsciences/research/dbresearch.asp Project Objective: To analyze and evaluate natural resource use and management issues of relevance to Texas High Plains¿¿¿ agricultural producers. Project Summary and Accomplishments: Description of Project Significance: The Texas High Plains region is one of the most intensive agricultural areas of the U. S. The level of reliance of the regional economy on agriculture is quite high. Wise, deliberate, and proper planning for utilization of natural resource endowments in the Texas High Plains is critical for the future sustainability of the agricultural industry in the region. This project addresses many of the issues of relevance to the future sustainability of agriculture in the Texas High Plains. These issues include groundwater utilization, technology adoption, optimal input utilization, and crop/livestock production alternatives. Specific efforts addressing the issues pointed above are listed under the publications and presentations section below. Keywords: optimal natural resource use, sustainable agricultural production practices
