Student receives Robert L. Lang Graduate Fellowship

Research examining adoption of pulse crops into the dryland wheat fallow cropping system has earned the $1,200 Robert L. Lang Graduate Fellowship at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center (SAREC).

SAREC director John Tanaka announced that Assistant Professor Carrie Eberle submitted the proposal on behalf of graduate student Amberle Filley.

Research objectives are to determine if pulse crops can be incorporated into the winter wheat rotation, achieve high yield in a rainfed system, and contribute nitrogen to the rotation.

The research is titled, “Introduction of Pulse Crops into the Wheat-Fallow Rotation in Southeastern Wyoming.”
