Pasture Rangeland and Forage

Pasture rangeland and forages cover approximately 55% of all U.S. land. Forage grows differently in different areas, so it's important for farmers and ranchers to know which types and techniques work best for their region. Pasture, Rangeland, and Forage (PRF) utilizes an indexing system to determine conditions. This program is now available in Kentucky. The Rainfall Index (RI) is based on weather data collected and maintained by National Oceanic Atmospheric Climate Prediction Center.


The index reflects how much precipitation is received in relative to the long term average for a specified area and timeframe.


PRF is intended for perennial crops or self seeding annual plants maintained through several years of grazing.
