Tracking Success of Agricultural Management Measures in Four Texas Watersheds

Project Goals/Objectives: TWRI will facilitate collaborative efforts among project partners to implement agricultural management measures for the project watersheds. Until now, a common approach to implementation of agricultural management measures has been to approach each project watershed independently of other watersheds. This new approach/method will be at a larger, coordinated multiple-watershed scale that, once developed, could be used a statewide tool or approach to greater implementation of agricultural BMPs. This project is for a multi-faceted approach. Key components include education, outreach, and demonstration. TWRI will work with project partners to organize one education program in each watershed per year that discusses stocking strategies and grazing management. Finally, demonstration of the BMPs will be showcased during the Digital Field Day.

Project Location: Leon River: Hamilton, Coryell, Comanche, Mills, Erath, and McClennan counties, Mission/Aransas Rivers: Bee, San Patricio, Refugio, and Goliad counties, Baffin Bay Watershed: Jim Wells, Nueces, Kleberg, and Duvall counties, Arroyo Colorado: Cameron, Hidalgo, and Willacy counties
