Nebraska project strives to improve land use efficiency

A University of Nebraska-Lincoln research team will investigate how to improve land use efficiency through the integration of livestock and crop production systems. The team, which includes members of a new Nebraska Beef Systems Research Initiative, expects to increase output per acre and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The team will also study if the benefits of cover crops are retained when they are used for livestock forage. Other areas of research include yields, soil health and the economic feasibility of adopting these new practices.
