Climate change in the

Climate change in the coming decades may well require a shift from a cool-season forage base (that requires high moisture and soil fertility) to forages that use resources more efficiently and that can be grown in a wide array of soils. Before teff can be adapted widely throughout the nation, more work must be done in order to evaluate its ability to thrive in different climates and soils. Primarily, research has been conducted in western and mid-western states, with little done in the mid-Atlantic and south-eastern regions. Although Teff has potential for grazing and hay production, more information about its cultural practice, establishment and overall management is needed before it can be widely adopted in forage production systems. 15
