EverCrop – Perennial Plants in Cropping Systems

Paperback - January 2015 - AU $75.00

This Special Issue documents many aspects of the resulting research output from the EverCrop program.

This Special Issue of Crop & Pasture Science is a collection of papers that report on research conducted in the last 7 years, largely undertaken within a Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre's (FFI CRC) program that operated under the banner 'EverCrop'. This component of the FFI CRC portfolio of research and development focused on crop-livestock systems with the broad objective of exploring the potential for wider use of perennial plants in the mixed farming systems of southern Australia. + Full description

The motivation for the research undertaken by FFI CRC was to explore the potential offered by a perennial component and the ability of perennials to deliver commercial advantages to farmers as well as environmental benefits to their farming systems. Research activities undertaken as part of EverCrop provided a focus on farming systems where cropping is the key economic driver as part of a mixed crop/livestock system. In Australia, such systems have historically been dominated by annual crops and pastures and EverCrop was instigated to challenge the status quo and scope the potential for diversification using perennials.

This Special Issue documents many aspects of the resulting research output from the EverCrop program.
