Three new water experts have joined the research staff at LSU AgCenter’s Red River Research Station in Bossier City.
Economist Naveen Adusumilli is crunching the numbers on how smart irrigation techniques can benefit Louisiana farmers. He wants them to rethink how they irrigate their land and introduce them to soil moisture sensors and bookkeeping strategies that would reduce the amount of water they use on their crops and put more money in their wallet.
