Evaluation of native cool season grasses and native shrubs
in agroforestry practices for small and middle farms as ground covers to reduce
dependency on chemicals, increase biodiversity, enhance habitat for wildlife,
and other potential uses. Studies included are shade tolerance trials of native
cool season grasses, evaluating native shrubs to provide cover for quail and
other wildlife, and using native legume shrubs as companion crops in pecan orchards.
Native plant demonstrations are also established at the HARC arboretum and prairie
restoration -including native cool season grasses- is underway in marginal land.
