Plant Germplasm

Plant Germplasm

AgBotanica develops forage plant germplasms that are suitable to the eastern US. These germplasms may include annuals or perennials, grasses or legumes. They demonstrate improved persistence, adaptation, nutritive value, and/or yield distribution.

AgBotanica negotiates germplasm agreements on a case-by-case basis. If your company is interested in forage germplasm, please contact us at info@agbotanica.com.

Below is our list of publications that deal with forage quality, persistence, yield, and utilization.
