Brief Project Summary:

The objective of this research and demonstration project is to assess the response of an emerging Roundup Ready forage-type soybean cultivar and a high yielding grain-type cultivar in plots that are irrigated with swine lagoon effluent. The study will evaluate forage dry matter accumulation and seed yield along with the nutritional value of the seed. The soil will be evaluated for nutrient removal.
