Project Title: EVALUATE CRP LAND POTENTIAL FOR BIOMASS FEEDSTOCK PRODUCTION
PI: Dr. Gopal Kakani (Plant and Soil Sciences, Oklahoma State University)
Co-PI: Dr. Rod Wanger (USDA, Oklahoma FSA)
Start Date: 07/01/2007 End Date: 09/30/2009
1) Replicate the SGI/DOE project at Altus, Oklahoma to evaluate biomass potential across locations.
2) Evaluate changes in soil physical and chemical properties of CRP land during the feedstock production period.
3) The site will be used for demonstration to students in the Bioenergy Crop Production course taught by Dr. Kakani beginning in 2009.
