My mission is to affect a true change in the efficiency of forage production and utilization in Texas. By emphasizing the integrated use of proven methods and technologies, I will assist our state’s forage producers to improve yields, stand persistence, and input use efficiency, decrease the threat to our environment, and increase profitability. My approach will be to share my knowledge and findings from applied research, in concert with the work of colleagues in this and other disciplines.
