Project Number: 1902-21000-007-03
Start Date: Sep 22, 2008
End Date: Sep 21, 2013
The American Forage and Grassland Council will organize the design and publishing of a book documenting what is known and what is not known about the environmental affects of conservation practices on pasture lands. By recruiting lead authors, appropriate literature will be synthesized to document the science behind four primary conservation practices: (1) prescribed grazing, (2) nutrient management, (3) forage harvest management, and (4) pasture and hayland planting. A 5th chapter will be developed to address integrated conservation and management systems.
