Assignments A: Agro-Ecology Research

 

Assignments, category A: Agro-Ecology & Hydrology Research


A1_hydrology

A1 - Agricultural Hydrology & Water Management Systems

Objective of this experience program is to research and collect scientific data to support planning methods for meeting long-term water quality goals. You will also develop strategies to protect and enhance Florida's natural resources, while sustaining economically viable agricultural industry.

A6_sugarcane

A6 - Sustainable Sugarcane Farming Systems

Objective of this experience program is to propose a sustainable sugarcane farming system, which aims to balance economic, social and ecological needs, address water storage, water flow, water quality, biodiversity, soil subsidence, carbon emissions and biofuels production in south Florida.

A7_land-use

A7 - Analysis of Land Use for Biomass Production

Objective of the program is to design new land use systems in Florida farms, where will be taken into account complex environmental and economic considerations by balancing food production with water storage, nutrient management, soil subsidence, energy efficiency and habitat protection.

A8_soils

A8 - Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Subsidence of Organic Soils

Main objective of this program is to propose an alternative, sustainable sugarcane farming system for the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) in south Florida and investigate inter-relationships between soil subsidence sources, greenhouse gases (mostly carbon dioxide) in EAA farming systems.

A9_everglades

A9 - Farm Lands Water Storage for Everglades Restoration

Objectives of this practical experience program are exploring and addressing the need for dramatically new Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) farming systems (component challenges of creating innovative farms) and developing research programs to meet these complex challenges.
