- Agronomic: grass (misc. annual), grass (misc. perennial), grass (turfgrass, sod)
- Animal Production: feed/forage
This demonstration project will compare the benefits of integrating warm season grasses into forage farming systems that currently rely on cool-season grasses for production and profitability. We will determine if warm-season grasses increase production and profitability of forage production over cool-season species used alone. We will compare fertilizer requirements among species treatments. The project will monitor forage quality such as crude protein and relative feed value. Rainfall and local weather data will be monitored as well.
