University of Missouri Receives $250,000 for Biofuel Crops/Wildlife Research

Columbia, Missouri – Producing biofuel crops can help the environment and ease demand for fossil fuels – or it can do exactly the opposite, depending on how farmers manage the land. University of Missouri researchers have received a $250,000 federal grant to demonstrate techniques for growing biofuel crops while supporting wildlife, protecting soil and water, and bolstering the farmer’s profits….With matching funds from the Missouri Department of Conservation, the nonprofit conservation group Quail Unlimited and others, the award package for MU will total more than $500,000.
