East Texas Plant Materials Center

The East Texas Plant Materials Center (ETPMC) in Nacogdoches, Texas provides plant solutions in southwestern Arkansas, northwestern Louisiana, southeastern Oklahoma, and east Texas.

The principle plant conservation problems are soil protection; enhanced production and water quality on degraded pasture, rangeland, and timberland; restoration and protection of surface-mined areas; and protection of frequently inundated bottoms, streambanks, saline and high water table soils. The Center develops technology for mining and timber reclamation, improving saline soils, protecting streambanks and wetlands, enhancing wildlife habitat, and improving range and pasturelands.

The East Texas Plant Materials Center has developed conservation plants including varieties for use in improving pasture lands and in enhancing wildlife habitat.
