OUR HISTORY

  • Established in 1999 by a partnership of state, federal, and local agencies and land-grant universities, the Delta Conservation Demonstration Center (DCDC) was formed to serve as a “living, growing learning center”.  Its goal is to demonstrate agricultural practices designed to preserve and enrich the environment while producing a positive economic impact for the farmer and the region.

  • It is a non-profit 501(C) (3) corporation with a Board of Directors that serves a four-state Delta region including Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee.

  •  The tools, training and resources provided by the DCDC are available to anyone who is interested in learning more about sound conservation practices.  The DCDC is also used as a training site for USDA, state, and private groups.

  • The DCDC is a farmer operated facility.  The center provides growers with first hand access and knowledge of alternative cropping and tillage systems.  The DCDC demonstrates acceptable environmentally sound practices with regard to TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load) issues and other water quality standards.

  • The DCDC works in cooperation with local, state, and national agencies to provide a working model of Delta-specific conservation-oriented practices on large acreage, on a long-term basis, and under farmer conditions. 

  • It is a true partnership of growers, governmental agencies, agri-business, and private citizens, working together to develop best management practices and careful stewardship of two of our most valuable resources – our land and water.
