ARS/FAPRU: Improving pasture sustainability by enhancing red clover abiotic stress resistance, interactions with rhizobium, and incorporation of beneficial plant secondary compounds into animal feed

Grants and Contracts Details


This NACA between The Forage-Animal Production Research Unit (FAPRU) and the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is to conduct collaborative research focused on forage-based livestock production. The parties agree that the objectives of this NACA are consistent with research missions of both USDA-ARS and the University of Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station. The independent interests of the University of Kentucky include a strong commitment to utilizing forages in the region to enhance the economy of the Commonwealth in general and the small- to mid-size farmer in particular. The FAPRU has the mission to improve productivity, competitiveness, and sustainability of forage-based enterprises. This partnership was generated to provide the livestock industry with sustainable technologies, management practices and integrative strategies to improve the conservation and use of pasture agro-ecosystems to support livestock production and other natural resource uses.
