The USDA/ARS Jornada Experimental Range near Las Cruces, NM was created in 1912 by presidential executive order with a mission of developing science-based solutions to land degradation in Southern New Mexico. 100 years later, its mission has not changed radically, but its methods, tools and stakeholders have. All along the way, the unit has had strong connections with the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, now New Mexico State University.
