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.
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.
