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.
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.
