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.

Soil microbes can suppress plant disease

Scientists are gaining a better understanding of soil microbes and how they could help control cotton root rot in alfalfa.

Reducing Lignin Content Can Increase Forage Quality and Disease Resistance

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls that provides physical strength to plants, but, higher lignin concentrations can negatively affect forage digestibility. Therefore, it is best to reduce, but not eliminate, lignin in forage crops. Eliminating total lignin content can severely alter plant growth and performance in the field.

Prussic Acid Poisoning in Grazing Livestock

To prevent prussic acid poisoning, livestock should not graze sorghum or sorghum-sudan grass hybrids immediately after frost, drought or other stress.
