South Dakota State University assistant professor Sandeep Kumar is leading a four-year, $4 million project involving 26 scientists from five universities in assessing the impact of incorporating grazing crops at seven sites in North Dakota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. The integrated crop and livestock management system seeks to use crops, such as oats, sorghum, turnips, radishes, or millet, planted after harvest for grazing. "We're expecting this practice to help increase crop production," explained Kumar. The researchers will share their results with producers through a quarterly newsletter, which will be available along with other project information at www.ipicl.org.
