Abstract Kernza intermediate wheatgrass is the first perennial grain crop in the world and has been developed with conventional breeding to increase seed yield of forage intermediate wheatgrass (Thinopyrum intermedium (Host) Barkworth & D.R. Dewey). When managed for dual-use (grain and forage), Kernza intermediate wheatgrass can produce grain, crop residue (straw) in the summer, and green forage in the spring and fall. Mixtures of this grass with legumes could increase forage yield and nutritive...

ABSTRACTThe addition of perennial warm-season C4 grasses to perennial pastures, may contribute to carbon sequestration, in addition to increasing production and stabilising seasonal variations. We quantified root biomass in three pasture mixtures after 3 years of growth: a conventional mixture of Festuca arundinacea, Trifolium repens and Lotus corniculatus, the conventional mixture + Paspalum notatum and the conventional mixture + Paspalum dilatatum. Root biomass and content of carbon were highe...

Abstract Irrigation is an intensification technology to increase productivity in agricultural systems, but the impacts of irrigation on the environmental performance of crops are not well understood. We evaluated impacts on water use and quality of rainfed and irrigated systems for corn and soybean production in temperate South America using nonparametric ANOVA tests for small sample sizes. We modeled blue water footprint, ecotoxicity, N and P balance, and eutrophication potential for six farms ...

Global changes in land use and increased forestry plantations have reduced the livestock area in Uruguay, and silvopastoral systems have recently emerged. This paper aimed to quantify these new systems, and to identify the diversity of patterns of integration of forestry and livestock production. Based on detailed data from the 2011 Uruguay Census of Agriculture a multi dimensional scaling analysis was performed on land tenure, land use, livestock management, and socio-economic continuous and ca...

Worldwide, native grasslands are being converted to non-native pastures and cropland. This process threatens local grassland biomes as well as the livelihoods of farm families that utilize these grasslands. In the Rio de la Plata grasslands region meat production and multispecies native grasslands have coexisted for more than 400 years. Low levels of meat productivity and farm income, however, trigger replacement of native grasslands by crops and leys and threaten the survival of local beef farm...
