From the Great Plains to Southern Florida, Alaska to the Desert Southwest-- the land is as varied as the people. A newly released profile of the United States of America is aimed at describing specific areas of land around the country, while revealing how adaptation is helping it thrive in current conditions, and why creating sustainable, management practices are crucial moves for the future.
Longtime American Society of Agronomy and Crop Science Society of America member Dr. Henry Fribourg is one of the main editors and authors of the project. The University of Tennessee at Knoxville Professor Emeritus spent years guiding 27 other authors in their efforts to create the digital book, Country Pasture/Forage Resources Profile.
