New project!

We got awarded a grant from USDA to support a multi-state investigation of the potential benefits of livestock integration through cover-crop grazing in vegetable systems, including effects on soil health and potential food safety issues. This work builds on the research we have done at RR and is lead by Alda Pires at the School of veterinary medicine and myself in partnership with The Organic Center, USDA’s Agricultural Research Service, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and the University of Minnesota. Sequoia will be actively working on this project!
