It also seeks to promote high quality basic and applied research, with a comprehensive orientation for professionals who are able to offer technological and scientific services through consulting, advice, labor, as well as the formulation and implementation of projects to solve problems relevant to agricultural and livestock activities, sustainable use and technology transfer, particularly those related to the management and use of drylands, to strengthen the productive sector of the region and the country.
