Technical Abstract: Our goal is to develop diverse, stable, and persistent forage and pasture lands that provide a permanent cover and protect the natural resource base for future generations. Research on forage-livestock systems seeks to improve the productivity, sustainability, and profitability of northeastern forage and grazing lands by managing and enhancing forage diversity. Research on integrated farming systems focuses on the farm management scale to develop pasture-based systems that are profitable and protect the environment. This handout contains summaries of several pasture, forage, and biofuels research projects at the USDA-ARS Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit in University Park, PA.
