2015 Preliminary result: Dryland Teff fertility trial

Teff [Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter] is a relatively new forage crop in the Rolling Plains of Texas, and it is getting popular in other surrounding areas.

The question is whether the Teff is adapted in our Hot and Dry summer in the Rolling Plains of Texas!
