Researcher Looking to the Future of Legumes and Nitrogen-Fixing

Nitrogen fertilizer costs are going up, and will continue to rise. Dr. Judy Grossman of North Carolina State University is concerned about the impact that will have on our future, so she’s doing the research now to help us better understand how legumes and microbes work together to fix nitrogen in the soil.  Her goal is to be able to give information to farmers that they can use to calculate how much nitrogen is being added to fields and pastures.  Spend 2 minutes and 30 seconds with her to learn about how your future might be improved by the work she’s doing.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
