Summary
Abstract: (adapted from abstract presented at ARS Carbon Storage Workshop
Baltimore, MD Jan. 1999)


PROBLEM: Improved grass cultivars of various species are used
extensively to reseed degraded grasslands and for seeding cropland as
CRP lands. Little is known of differences in carbon storage among
grass species used for hay, grazing, or not managed.

APPROACH: Pastures were seeded in 1986 to pure stands ... View entire text
