Forever Green Crop Summaries
For the state of Minnesota to meet proposed water quality goals, we must incorporate winter annual and perennial crops into agricultural landscapes. The Forever Green Initiative at the University of Minnesota is positioned to realize this goal and more. The Forever Green Initiative is focused on developing new crops to ensure agricultural production to strengthen economies while protecting water and other natural resources.
By coupling innovations in crop breeding, agricultural production methods, food science, and utilization technologies, we can add to the productivity and profitability of current agricultural systems and enable major improvements in water quality.
