Northeast dairy farms often have land that erodes easily or land that is unsuited to cultivation in perennial sods. This project will look at the feasibility of improving existing stands on such land through introducing improved species, and getting higher-quality forage, by seeding during manure applications. Outreach will be through presentations, written articles, and a twilight meeting.
