The Soil and Water Management Research Group conducts academic, research and extension programs in agricultural water management. The primary focus is on poorly drained, high water table soils with specific application to the Coastal Plains of North Carolina.
The Group is made up of faculty, staff and graduate students from the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering and the Department of Soil Science, with cooperators from Forestry, Toxicology and other departments at NCSU.
We conduct field and laboratory research studies and develop computer simulation models to describe the hydrologic and environmental impacts of land uses and management practices.
To develop methods to manage poorly drained soils for the production of food and fiber while maintaining environmental quality.
