The template includes a case study of a producer who tested two varieties of the drought-tolerant species sorghum-sudangrass, seeded at two different rates under dryland conditions. The producer’s goal was to extend fall grazing on dryland pasture. It provides tips on:

  • Deciding what to test
  • Finding the best location for test plots
