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. 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 currently important to the agriculture of the state of Arizona and have been for over a century. The demand for forages continues to grow with the dairy and pleasure horse industries. The durum produced in Arizona, Desert Durum®, is recognized as the highest quality durum in the world and commands a premium price in the domestic and export markets. 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.
