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's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in this area. 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 very important to the agriculture of the state of Arizona. Since 1882, forage and grain crops have been grown on more acres than any other commodity group 102 of the 121 years of record. In 2002, forage and grain crops were harvested from 485,000 acres, an increase of 178,000 acres compared to 1991. Alfalfa, corn, wheat, and barley contributed most to the acreage increase during this time period. All indications are that forage and grain crops will continue to be a vital part of Arizona agriculture in the future.

One of the goals of the University of Arizona's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences 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.
