Economic Value of Diversified Cropping Systems

While some short rotations are currently profitable, the lack of diversification in a cropping system can be detrimental to maintaining crop yield and profitability. This study will look at determining the net return and the variability of net return, associated with cropping systems of different rotation length and diversity of crops. This project will be completed in 2022.

The annual status report features progress on objectives from 2019-2020.
