Summary of Research and Extension Activities

My position at the Range Cattle REC is 100% research. However, 25% of my time is spent in extension related activities such as trouble shooting and visiting ranches regarding forage management, field and forage crop selection, fertilization, pasture herbicide program, pasture insect and disease problems. Handle most biomass and phosphate reclamation questions for south Florida as related to tropical conditions.

I have released three Cynodon grasses (Florona and Florico stargrass and Florakirk bermudagrass) to commercial growers. These grasses are used by 50% of the beef cattle people and by most central and south Florida dairymen. These three grasses have been requested by more than 60 countries in the tropical world and reports indicate good success.

During the past 15 years have developed a pasture renovation program to accelerate pasture establishment (11-mo. 15 yrs ago to 2-months today). Commercial growers are utilizing the pasture renovation program with outstanding results.

Florona stargrass is being planted at Disney Worlds new Animal Kingdom, to provide forage and ground cover for African animals. Also advise Disney World contractors on pasture establishment surrounding the new Animal Kingdom Lodge.

I have been invited by the countries of Jamaica, Guatemala, Venezuela, Brazil, China, Cuba, Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria and Vietnam to present numerous talks on forage management and tour the respective countries to answer forage questions and recommend forage management. All trips were sponsored by the foreign government.

Phosphate reclamation research conducted during the mid-80's is providing basic and applied information to industry and commercial producers today.

In 1990, the tropical soda apple (weed) entered our south Florida pastures and by 1995 covered 0.5 million acres. Cooperative research between J. J. Mullahey, myself, and others have determined the biology, life-cycle and developed control measures. Research is being conducted on smutgrass (sporobolus sp) which also occupies nearly 0.5 million acres of pasture area.

Working at a research center has tremendous advantages, allowing one to conduct research as needed for the grower and test the research results on commercial ranches.

In summary getting research out to growers so they can make a profit.
