Feed, fodder and rangelands

October 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Technologies for forage and feed production and rangeland management are helping to create integrated crop-livestock-rangeland systems. Ongoing research is helping to develop guidelines (and suitable varieties) for dual-purpose wheat and barley. A new partnership on forage production with NCARE-Jordan began in 2012, and will involve on-station and on-farm experiments. The first trials will be planted in November. A four-year project in Afghanistan is expected to be approved for funding by ACIAR, with operations beginning in 2013. The project will examine new forage and fodder options, including seed production and the use of biotechnology applications.
