The need to develop long-term, sustainable, integrated systems is growing and vital not only to agriculture but to the global community as a whole. Environmental issues, world hunger, water depletion, renewable energy and economic impacts are just a few of the many factors that are affecting our changing world. The Texas High Plains are unique in that it represents not just one of the most intensive agricultural production areas of the United States, but it presents many of the issues that are faced world-wide with many similarities to other ecosystems around the world. This provides a unique opportunity to study global issues and how parts of a system and the resources available interact and work together.
