    Crop Science Investigation (CSI) Network         This site is designed to serve as a clearinghouse of lesson plans and other materials useful for teaching 4-H and FFA youth about crop and soil sciences.  Check out this site for information to use in your classroom, workshops, or 4-H meetings.        As youth become less connected with agriculture, it is essential to teach them about agriculture. A series of workshops, called Crop Science Investigation or CSI was created to help spark the interest of youth to learn about crops and plants. Dig into some interesting facts about Nebraska crops. Learn how crops grow and factors that affect them. Learn about exciting career opportunities related to crop and plant science. The University of Nebraska offers great majors for anyone interested in anything plants!  Check it out!

    What is the Cenusa Bioenergy Project? The Cenusa Bioenergy project is funded by the USDA and includes faculty and staff from 8 institutions working together to investigate perennial grasses as a feedstock for biofuels and the creation of a regional sustainable biofuels system in the Midwest. Cenusa Bioenergy Vision Our vision is to create a regional system for producing advanced transportation fuels derivedfrom perennial grasses grown on land that is either unsuitable or marginal for row crop production.  In addition to producing advanced biofuels, the proposed system will improve the sustainability of existing cropping systems by reducing agricultural runoff of nutrients and soil and increasing carbon sequestration. To learn more about the Cenusa project, please visit the Cenusa home page at http://www.cenusa.iastate.edu/ To view the educational materials we have created thus far, click on the "lessons" tab above.  Find additional quizzes by clicking on the "CenUSA Education" link under the self-paced course heading.  The left hand tabs will take you to more detailed descriptions of the CenUSA project objectives.                                                                  The CenUSA Bioenergy project is supported by Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30411 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
