DescriptionSubstantial research and development effort in the U.S. is being spent on developing strategies that address flooding and water pollution problems in agricultural areas. Concerns have been raised about the costs of flood damage, degradation of productive farm land, and declining water quality that are now recognized as unintended consequences of intensive, high-yield agricultural methods. these concerns have brought into question our ability to maintain future capacity for producing food and clean water. The focus of research and development has been to look for ways to lessen these environmental problems while maintaining high production.
