Sustainable BioEconomy for Arid Regions (SBAR)

The Sustainable Bioeconomy for Arid Regions (SBAR) Center was funded by a 5-year USDA-NIFA Grant (2017-2022) with purpose of investigating the feedstock development, production and delivery of two, drought-resistant crops: guayule and guar. The goals of SBAR are:

• Improve feedstock through genetics and traditional plant breeding.

• Trans-disciplinary training for students and educators.

• Increase biofuel and bioproduct production in the Southwest.

• Match crop choice and yield per available water supply in semi-arid areas.

ASC-Clovis Faculty Dr. Sangamesh Angadi is a member of this project. More information can be found here.
