Introduction

The purpose of the Forage and Grain Report is to keep you up-to-date on the research activities conducted by the University of Arizona College of Agriculture. Our mission is to support the needs of Arizona agriculture and improve the quality of life for the citizens of the state.

Forage and grain crops are planted on more acres than any other crop in Arizona. Unfortunately, prices for these and most other commodities grown in the state are at a low point. Forage and grain crops continue to be the most widely planted group of crops in the state, however, despite low commodity prices due to lack of alternatives and the beneficial rotational aspects of these crops.

The goal of the University of Arizona College of Agriculture is to strengthen Arizona's competitive position in the production of agricultural commodities. The reports in this volume contain information that can assist you and your industry in today's market.
