Research Project: PIGEONPEA CULTIVARS FOR SUSTAINABLE CEREAL-LEGUME CROPPING SYSTEM IN THE U.S. SOUTHERN PLAINS

Location: Forage and Livestock Production Unit

Project Number: 6218-21610-001-03
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 01, 2008
End Date: Jun 30, 2013

Objective:
Exchange pigeonpea germplasm for sustainable cereal-legume cropping systems suitable for the southern Great Plains region.

Approach:
Identify and exchange Pigeonpea cultivars suitable for the summer fallow period in a continuous winter wheat production system. Evaluate pigeonpeas as forage or forage/grain crop for the utilization by humans and/or livestock under the climatic conditions of the Southern Great Plains. Provide detailed climatological data for El Reno, Oklahoma, to ICRISAT.
