Research Focus

The primary agricultural commodities consist of small grains, alfalfa, corn, soybeans, forage legumes, grain sorghum, sweet and forage sorghums, and forage grasses. Other major programs consist of soil fertility and plant nutrition, animal waste and carcass management, weed control, insect control and plant disease control, and Biofuel (forage) research.  Livestock grazing studies and demonstration efforts have been of interest to area livestock producers and included features such as stocking rates, forage quantity and quality, and overall pasture management.  The station has a purebred angus cow/calf herd used to support research, pasture maintenance, grazing forage research plots, and research plot clean-up.
