Howdy! It has been a hard summer for Texas agriculture. Fortunately, BAEN extension faculty have been on top of that. Read about their activities on water conservation strategies and other issues. Our faculty keep succeeding in all areas of research, teaching, and outreach. Congratulations go to those who were granted tenure and promotions this year. Many students graduated and have moved on to either graduate school or jobs all over the nation. Good luck to all of you! This issue highlights some of the activities at the ASABE and IFT meetings. Hope you enjoy it and remember to drop me a note about yourself.
