Author: Brandon Schlautman, Spencer Barriball, Claudia Ciotir, Sterling Herron, and Allison J. Miller
Publication: Sustainability

Abstract: Annual cereal and legume grain production is dependent on inorganic nitrogen (N) and other fertilizers inputs to resupply nutrients lost as harvested grain, via soil erosion/runoff, and by other natural…

Author: M. Kathryn Turner, Damian Ravetta, and David Van Tassel
Publication: Sustainability

Abstract: New crops with greater capacity for delivering ecosystem services are needed to increase agricultural sustainability. However, even in these crops, seed yield is usually the main criteria for grain domestication….

Publication: Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2017

Abstract: A perennial version of grain sorghum [S.bicolor (L.) Moench] would create opportunities for greatly reducing tillage and preventing soil degradation. Efforts to select for perenniality and grain production among progeny of…
