25 - Pedro Nunes, PhD

January 28, 2021

Pedro is currently working in the Department of Forage Plants and Agrometeorology, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil. He grew up on a cattle and sheep ranch in the natural grassland ecosystem (Pampa) in southern Brazil.
His research has examined the effects of different grazing intensities and stocking rate on pastoral ecosystems, focusing on details of grazing cattle within integrated crop-livestock systems, particularly soybean-beef cattle systems typical of southern Brazil. As the leader of a long-term experiment started in 2001, he studied the effect of different grazing intensities by beef steers on mixed Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and black oat (Avena strigosa) pastures during the winter period, evaluating forage and animal responses to different defoliation intensities, and the subsequent effects on soybean yields.
