Scientists receive $5 million grant to identify, study genes that help legumes access nutrients from soil
Scientists at the Noble Research Institute, Boyce Thompson Institute, Clemson University, Texas Woman's University, University of Delaware and University of North Texas have collaborated on a project that recently received a four-year, $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
Researchers at the Noble Research Institute are taking a novel approach by investigating small peptides as a way to potentially help improve plant stress tolerance.
Nitrogen fertilizers are necessary but also costly. Researchers are looking into ways to improve plants' natural abilities to efficiently use nitrogen.
Jill S. Baron, Ph.D., senior scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey and senior research ecologist with the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University, presented "Too much of a good thing: Toward an International Nitrogen Management System" as part of the Research Seminar Series at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 26.
The Noble Research Institute will host a Managing Soil Nutrients for Pastures and Hayfields seminar from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium.
One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture is economic uncertainty. Farmers and ranchers can mitigate economic risk by building resiliency in their operations, and Noble research aims to help.
Since there is economic risk in applying fertilizer, we generally do not recommend applying fertilizer unless there is a significant advantage to doing so. Therefore, the general recommendation of not fertilizing native grass is correct in most instances.
