Integrated Crop-Livestock Systems Study

Purdue University’s Sustainable Horticulture Lab is leading an Integrated Crop-Livestock Systems study on organic farms. The study aims to determine the impact of integrated systems on soil health, microbial communities, and food pathogens on the farm. The lab will also explore the economic feasibility of these systems.

For those who would like to participate in the research, requirements include raising chickens or other livestock, using organic practices (certification is not required), and planting a paired strip trial with and without livestock integration.

If you’re interested in learning more details about participating in this research, or if you would simply like to sign up for e-mails about the study and related events and activities, please take the following survey:
