This 3-year grant for $86,333 was awarded in 2012.
Location: Ringgold county
The effects of grazing and burning management on tallgrass prairie remnants and restorations are explored. Researchers investigate the potential of fire and grazing interaction to reduce tall fescue abundance and/or alter the endophyte infection rates of tall fescue, an exotic grass commonly used as forage for beef cattle and that also shows up as a prairie invasive.
