Title: Alternative Crops and Crop Production For North Dakota
Author: Schatz, B.G.; Gardner, J.C.
Description: North Dakota is capable of growing many different crops. Yet, focusing on a smaller array of crops has increased yields, streamlined field operations and greatly reduced labour requirements to produce these limited crops. This has in turn increased soil erosion, risk of diseases, increased pest problems and increased the need of government subsidies. A variety of professionals in different fields were assembled to address the perceived need for crop diversification in North Dakota. Perennials were deemed as the most quickly adaptive companion plant to annual crops as they are self seeding, have ease of tillage and have less water needs.
