      The Mississippi Delta is an important agricultural area, producing 67% of the soybean, corn, and cotton grown in the state of Mississippi. Because irrigation can stabilize and increase crop yields and economic returns, approximately 80% of the water withdrawn from the alluvial aquifer is used for by: 5. This research also includes the continued development and implementation of computerized hole selection and surge irrigation and sensors. Contact: Mark Henry, Research.
