The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Corn Stover Utilization and Soil Health.

Mishra, Nishi.

The Minnesota Project, with support from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, sought to evaluate and understand the potential implications of substantial corn stover harvest. The project sought to use an established US Department of Agriculture tool, the RUSLE2 model, to begin to evaluate what the actual impacts of stover harvest appear to be. While further study and analysis is needed, this paper should begin to provide some indication of the extent and conditions for which stover collection is acceptable.
