Description

US-Mexico Training in Environment, Agriculture and Management (TEAM) US-Mexico Training in Environment, Agriculture and Management (TEAM) The US-Mxico Training in Environment, Agriculture and Management (TEAM) program is an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and comparative exchange that will expose graduate students to sustainable agriculture in the desert landscapes of North America. This will be achieved through a collaborative effort between Arizona State University (ASU) and the Instituto Tecnolgico de Sonora (ITSON) focused on agricultural practices, environmental assessments, and sustainable management tools. Two major agricultural regions, Maricopa and Pinal counties in central Arizona, USA, and the Yaqui Valley in southern Sonora, Mxico, provide an ideal setting for conducting a comparative study to assess the capabilities of sustainable farming. To do so, we have partnered with the Central Arizona Project and the Yaqui Valley Irrigation District, and their respective networks, to provide on-site learning experiences. Our proposal directly aligns with the Innovation Fund objective of improving student competencies and providing real-world training for the future workforce in sustainable agriculture. We aim to address the challenge posed by Fundacin Gruma President Juan Gonzlez-Moreno of: working together to find solutions to common problems and to create more and better opportunities for our two countries, businesses and people.
