ACQUISITION AND PROCESSING INFORMATION

The research proposals and reports of Solution to Environmental and Economic Problems (STEEP) were transferred to Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections at the Washington State University Libraries by Sheila Brooks of WSU's Agricultural Research Center in 2010 as part of a publications file (UA 2010-05). These reports and proposals were separated and processed in 2010 by University Archivist Mark O'English with assistance from University of Idaho graduate student Timothy Mace.

ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Initiated in 1975, STEEP (Solutions To Environmental and Economic Problems) is a collaborative project involving scientists and educators from the University of Idaho, Oregon State University, Washington State University, and USDA-Agricultural Research Service, in cooperation with grower organizations and agricultural support industries and agencies. STEEP is an interdisciplinary research/education program focusing on developing profitable cropping systems technologies for controlling cropland soil erosion and protecting environmental quality.
