Cooperative Agricultural Research Center (CARC)
The Cooperative Agricultural Research Center (CARC) is the unit within the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences that plays an important role in agriculture,natural resources and life sciences. The CARC component helps Prairie View A&M University fulfill its land-grant mission of teaching, research and service.
Agricultural research in the Cooperative Agricultural Research Center is divided into the following areas: Animal Systems, Plant Systems, Food Systems, Natural Resources and Environmental Systems and Social Systems and Allied Research.
Reproductive Performance, Genetic Improvement Animal Genome, Controlled reproduction in goats, Improved artificial insemination, Small and large ruminant reproductive physiology, Developmental biology and physiological genomics, Beef Cattle, Goats, Nutrition, Growth and Development
International Goat Research Center
Reproductive Performance, Genetic Improvement Animal Genome, Controlled reproduction in goats, Improved artificial insemination, Small and large ruminant reproductive physiology, Developmental biology and physiological genomics
Rheological Modeling and Characterization of Goat Meat and Milk products, Dairy Technology and chemistry, food flavors and preservation and product development, Structure-functionality relationships in foods, food proteins, polysaccharides and lipid complexes
Natural Resources and Environmental Systems
Watershed management, Accretion or loss of sediments in marsh soil systems, Watershed modeling; groundwater modeling, water related hazards, Agricultural water management, Spatial hydrology, remote sensing of hydrology, water resource management, Best management practices for crops, water management in cropping systems and water quality issues, Climate and climate change effect on crop production
Social Systems and Allied Research
Clearinghouse for metrics and analytics on the causes, consequences, and correlates of income inequality, e.g., disparities associated with education, employment, health, housing, and income data points on the status and quality of life for limited-resource populations in Texas
PVAMU Goat Research
Explore the Advantages of Milk, Meat and Fiber Production, Family-owned Business Partnerships, Low Impact Grazing Techniques, Youth Experiential Learning Opportunity, Biotechnology and Medicinal Implications, Veterinary Health, Reproductive Technology.
Researchers at the International Goat Research Center (IGRC) have been developing a test that can determine fertility rates in male goats. This test has also shown potential for testing fertility in human subjects.
Goats graze on pastures unsuitable for other food production which increases productive cropland and improves economic conditions and food security in many regions.
Exports of goat genetics and products provide enhanced economic opportunity for small farmers and ranchers.
