Perennial Grain Species as Border Crops: Pollinator Habitat, Weed Suppression, and Forage Potential
Border crops have the potential to deliver agronomically important ecosystem services to crop fields. Perennial plantings could be advantageous in providing low-maintenance ground cover for field borders, flowers for pollinators, and even forage for livestock. In this webinar we will discuss the border crop potential of four perennial species at The Land Institute being domesticated as perennial grain crops – sainfoin, silflower, cup plant, and Kernza® – compared to two known border and forage crops, alfalfa and a 9-species prairie mixture. Dr. Ebony Murrell at The Land Institute and Jessica Butters at Kansas State University will discuss data collected during a 3-year research study, give a brief virtual tour of the research plots, and answer questions regarding perennial border crops and the services they provide.
