Teff (Eragrostis tef) is a major annual cereal crop in Ethiopia that is gaining acceptance as a forage crop in the United States. American producers can benefit from its rapid germination and growth under warm summer conditions when production from perennial, cool-season forage species is reduced. In this photo, Jim Fedders (ecologist) is harvesting Teff from a controlled environment experiment that is investigating Teff development and forage production in response to temperature.
