Program Description A large portion of research currently underway at ARS is applicable to the needs of small farms. ARS established the Dale Bumpers Small Farm Research Center specifically to conduct research on small farm systems and problems. Included in this research are programs directed toward conservation such as improving soil quality, management of hill lands for sustainable forage and livestock production. Livestock is also used to renovate underutilized lands and diversify small farm productions, agroforestry, identification and development of alternative and valueadded crops.
