Texas Climate-Smart Initiative

The Texas Climate-Smart Initiative is a five-year pilot project led by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and funded by USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service. This groundbreaking initiative aims to foster climate-smart agriculture for all major Texas agricultural commodities and create market opportunities across the commodities.
