Research Project: Best Management Practices for Biomass Production in Oklahoma

Location: Rangeland and Pasture Research

Project Number: 6216-21630-010-03
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 03, 2010
End Date: May 02, 2015

Objective:
1) Develop best management practices (BMPs) for sustainable large-scale establishment and production of feedstocks. 2) Enhance diversity, productivity, and resiliency through development of mixed species bioenergy production systems.

Approach:
Field-scale research plots will be established at Woodward, OK, to evaluate best warm-season grass establishment method and nitrogen requirements. Monocultures as well as mixed-cultures of grasses will be studied with commercial and legume nitrogen management methods.
