Texas A&M Study to Determine Best Organic Grain Production Recommendations

Researchers at Texas A&M AgriLife have been awarded $475,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture for a three-year study of organic grain and soybean cropping systems with the goal of identifying best production techniques for successful production in Texas.

After the first year in the study, the team said that they have learned a great deal since there is very little available information on organic cropping systems in Texas, especially for large-scale organic operations. Challenges included the timing of planting cover crops, weed management, and determining the best tillage systems.

Goals for the study include to identify species of cover crops, determine planting regimens, to achieve greater understanding of organic management practices on nutrient cycling, greenhouse gas emissions, weed population dynamics, water-yield relations, and soil health.
