Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2008
End Date: Aug 31, 2012
Develop and evaluate new bioenergy cropping system strategies for the northeastern U.S.
We will establish bioenergy cropping system trials to evaluate their productivity and environmental impacts. Systems will include perennial and annual cropping systems, cover crops to improve soil carbon, and mixed perennial and legume systems to evaluate their productivity and potential to reduce inputs. Research will be conducted over a range of landscape scales from plot and field scale to on-farm research.
