Resilient Cropping Systems Lab

Professor: Dr. Andrea Basche

Welcome to the Resilient Cropping Systems Lab. Our research explores opportunities for agriculture to address 21st century challenges around profitability, resource use efficiency, and a changing climate. Broadly, our research seeks to cultivate cropping systems that:

  • Demonstrate resource efficiency, working with natural resources to cycle nutrients, utilize water and control pests.
  • Bounce back from disturbances, such as increased flood and drought events.
  • Support diverse and thriving rural and urban communities, because cropping systems are intertwined with people and institutions (economic, social and political).
