Food Systems Webinar: Improving Water Use Efficiency in Silage Production

corn field

Colorado’s growing dairy industry creates a demand for silage production. A complete animal production system starts with the plants that feed them. Currently, the most common source of this silage is corn. Reducing the stress on limited water resources requires developing a more water-use efficient silage production system. Forage sorghum can be part of that system.

Join CSU Extension’s Dr. Todd Ballard, Agronomist in the Golden Plains, for an informative webinar on improving water use efficiency in silage production on Wednesday, September 8, 2021, from 2-2:30 pm MST. Q&A session to follow. The webinar is presented by the Colorado State University Food Systems team.

About CSU Food Systems

Food systems are defined as the connections between natural resources, the agricultural and food industry, and the buyers, consumers and communities to which they contribute. Research, extension and education identifies and informs opportunities to bridge how the production, supply chains, and eaters respond to changing markets, policy, and environment. At CSU, we focus on these three key areas to train, influence, and communicate opportunities to connect food related roles in achieving healthy communities, economies, and individuals.
