The forage and biomass crop production program has three main objectives: 1) To improve existing forage production practices and evaluate new perennial and annual forages in North Dakota; 2) To introduce and evaluate biomass crops as a new bioenergy component of existing cropping systems in North Dakota; and 3) To evaluate the impact of annual/perennial forages in intercropping, as cover crops, and living mulches on crop productivity and soil quality in North Dakota.
