Adopting grass-legume systems instead of only legumes or only grasses can improve overall productivity and profitability, according to research published in a new bulletin from the University of Wyoming Extension.
Grass-Legume Mixtures Can Improve Soil Health, B-1328, explains the increases are through production cost reductions and improving long-term soil health by boosting soil properties and microbial activities.
The findings are from a 2010-2014 field study at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle.
