Research Project: Forage Production for Limited Resource Producers

Location: Forage and Livestock Production Unit

Project Number: 6218-21610-001-02
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2017

Objective:
Identify forage materials and management practices that extend the productive grazing period of pastures and reduce the need for off-farm purchased inputs in order to reduce costs of production, increase resilience of production systems and reduce economic risks on small and limited resource farms.

Approach:
ARS will develop resource-efficient approaches to increasing supply, quality and sustainability of forages for small farms through experiments in controlled environment, in small-plot field trials or on cooperating farmers’ fields. Work will be carried out in cooperation with faculty and staff of Langston University and its Center for Outreach programs.
