National Soil Dynamics Laboratory, Agricultural Research Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture
Data Center Description
The mission of the USDA National Soil Dynamics Research Laboratory is to develop tools, practices, and products to better manage soil for sustainable and profitable agricultural production. The Laboratory solves agricultural problems in three major areas:
1. conservation systems (to improve production, farm profitability, and environmental quality)
2. organic waste management (to solve both on-farm and environmental problems
3) global change (response of conservation systems; mitigation of global change through soil carbon storage).
