Alfalfa and Forage Research Program

Alfalfa and Forage Research Program (AFRP) will support the development of improved alfalfa forage and seed production systems. The program will support the development of improved production systems for other forage crops in future years, depending on the availability of funding. Proposals submitted to AFRP in FY 2014 should address one or more of the following priorities: (1) Improving alfalfa forage and seed yield through better nutrient, water and/or pest management; (2) Improving persistence of alfalfa stands by lessening biotic or abiotic stresses; (3) Improving alfalfa forage and seed harvesting and storage systems to optimize economic returns; (4) Improving estimates of alfalfa forage quality as an animal feed to increase forage usage in animal feeds; and/or (5) Breeding to address biotic and abiotic stresses that impact forage yield and persistence and the production of seed for propagation.
