Integrating perennial grasses for sustainable agricultural systems to maximize farm profitability

Presenter Dr. DoKyoung (D.K.) Lee will discuss the potential of agriculture to include a perennial grass-based sustainable farming system within its landscape that will encourage environmental services, decrease use of fossil fuels and chemical products, improve diversity of plants and animals, generate more locally grown foods and bioenergy feedstock, and improve farm profitability.

Biodiversity within agricultural landscapes will promote productivity and sustainability of our agriculture through food, feed, fiber, and fuel. Dr. Lee will discuss the sustainable agricultural systems integrated with perennial grasses; how to design and establish market potential, a case study, and an on-farm example.
