The Center Pivot System saves a significant amount of water while allowing the measured distribution of a precise amount to plants.

This maize crop has been cultivated using conservation agriculture techniques.

Through conservation agriculture, scientists aim to improve rural incomes and livelihoods through sustainable management of agro-ecosystem productivity and diversity, while minimizing unfavorable environmental impacts.
