About the Presenter

James P. BordovskyJames P. Bordovsky has BS and MS degrees in agricultural engineering from Texas A&M University. He has been a senior research scientist and agricultural engineer at Texas A&M AgriLife Research since 2009, and he has served in related positions at the university dating back to 1976. Bordovsky’s research interest is to develop tools and management systems that assist in the transition from irrigated to dryland agriculture. Projects have involved rotating cotton crops with alternative crops using very limited irrigation to leverage rainfall; evaluating systems to reduce the cost of subsurface drip irrigation by management and design; irrigation timing with limited water to improve water resource productivity; and field-scale, multidiscipline cropping system evaluations involving irrigation levels, tillage and rotations.​
