K-State has determined Five Grand Challenges: Global Food Systems, Health, Developing Tomorrow's Leaders, Community Vitality and Water.

Saving our windbreaks, woodlands and supplying a good water source to our crops is vitally important.  K-State Research and Extension has been in the forefront facilitating the water talks across Kansas to plan for the conservation of our aquifer and surface water.

K-State Research and Extension gives you the ability to monitor the drought situation and many other agriculture and weather conditions.
