dc.description.abstract In regions of highly intensive high input /output agriculture , as the Texas High plains , where cotton is the primary crop , but where also sorghum and wheat are intensively produced , crop -livestock systems are considered an alternative to potentially lessen problems caused by and faced because of this intensity . WW -B . Dahl [WW -B . Dahl ; Bothriochloa bladhii (Retz . ) , S .T . Blake] has been one of several introduced grasses in the Texas High Plains as an attempt to diversify agricultural production and alleviate environmental problems such water scarcity and use of potentially dangerous chemicals . This research investigated the value of WW -B . Dahl as forage for grazing steers , the mineral cycling in integrated crop -livestock systems compared with cotton monoculture . An economic comparison of the two systems was included .
