Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Uvalde

“Our mission is to create knowledge and technology that result in efficient and profitable intensive water and agricultural management systems while maintaining balance between the environment and social prosperity.” 

The Uvalde Center, established in 1972, serves the Texas Winter Garden region,  known for irrigated agriculture, with crops such as spinach, potato, cabbage, onion,  carrot, melon, watermelon, cucumber, pepper, green bean, lettuce, pecan, and  more recently, artichoke. Farmers also cultivate cotton, corn, sorghum, wheat, and  forages. Open range beef cattle and goat production are supplemented by wildlife and outdoor recreation enterprises. The center conducts fundamental and applied  research and develops technology that results in efficient, sustainable, and profitable  agricultural, urban, and ecological management systems while conserving regional  underground water resources. These programs are designed to add product market  value and create a sustained prosperity for citizens of Southwest Texas and beyond.
