In this week’s featured video, one of our own Panhandle Ag Extension Team members, Jose Dubeux, Forage Management Specialist, shares a summary of research trials he and his team have conducted at the North Florida Research and Education Center, near Marianna. The main emphasis of the highlighted research has been seeking to develop methods to integrate forage legumes into bahiagrass pastures. The primary goal has been to develop a method to maintain animal performance while reducing the level of nitrogen fertilization required. The primary source of nitrogen in this experimental system is coming from perennial peanut and clovers planted into bahiagrass pastures. The initial results from the first four years has been very encouraging with a nitrogen reduction of 85%.
