The research project: "Landscape-Based Crop Management for Food, Feed, and Bioenergy" focuses in part on determining where on the landscape to best place alternative crops, such as perennial bioenergy crops. Field research is being conducted to evaluate the production, profitability, and environmental ramifications of bioenergy crops.
