  • Doctoral student Karla Hernandez, now South Dakota State University Extension Forage Field Specialist, stands in a plot of prairie cordgrass laced with Kura clover, a short broadleaf, in October 2010. The research was part of a multi-institutional Sun Grant project to determine the nitrogen replacement value of Kura clover.

  • Postdoctoral research associate Udayakumar Sekaran of the South Dakota State University Department of Agronomy, Horticulture and Plant Science compares enzyme activity in soil samples from plots of monoculture prairie cordgrass on which varying levels of nitrogen fertilizer were applied with those in which prairie cordgrass was grown in a mixture with Kura clover.

  • Determining the activity levels of specific enzymes, with end products, such as microbial activity and organic matter decomposition (fluorescent), nitrogen (green), sulfur (yellow) and ammonium (red), can help South Dakota State University researchers evaluate soil health. The work is part of a project to determine the benefits of Kura clover to prairie cordgrass, a potential biofuels crop.
