LSU AgCenter's Dean Lee Station wins conservation award

The LSU AgCenter's Dean Lee Research and Extension Station in Alexandria, La., has been awarded the 2007 Soil and Water Conservation Society of Louisiana ā€œGood Land Use Award.ā€

The station received the award because of its outstanding record in conducting agricultural research in management systems for cotton, soybeans, corn, weed control, beef cattle and performance testing, according to David Williams, district conservationist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resource Conservation Service in Alexandria, who made the nomination.

In addition to many other accomplishments in environmental stewardship, the station practices rotational grazing, nutrient management and integrated pest management, Williams said.

The station, which is adjacent to the LSU-Alexandria campus, comprises more than 3,000 acres.
