Program Description
The mission of the Dale Bumpers Small Farms Research Center is to develop scientific principles and technologies to enhance the profitability of small scale farms. Small farms are threatened by a lack of profitability. Research at the Center seeks knowledge that will increase profitability of small farms by reducing inputs and capturing a greater proportion of the post-farm value. A multi-disciplinary team of 5 ARS scientists, in cooperation with federal, state, and private organizations, pursue a program of basic and applied research that addresses constraints to successful sustainable livestock-forage and agroforestry systems. Acquired knowledge and technology is transferred to the agricultural community through the efforts of ARS scientists and their cooperators.
