Legume Adoption Practices:

Project Title: Legume adoption practices in western central United States: economic and environmental benefits in face of increased climatic variability

Project Goal: The goal of this project is to use a systems approach to develop new dryland wheat-legume crop rotation systems that sequester more carbon, reduce energy-intensive nitrogen fertilizer use, decrease greenhouse gag emissions, improve water use efficiency, and integrate crop and livestock production in mixed systems. The region's ability to sustainably produce food, feed and fiber will be assessed and an integrated extension and education program will be developed to promote adoption.
