Locality Effect Delays Availability of Applied Granular Elemental Sulfur for Crop Production

Farmers applying granulated elemental sulfur may be waiting an entire cropping cycle before their crops get the sulfur they need - a problem that could be costing them yield and money. Sulfur is a vital component of chlorophyll and a wide range of amino acids, enzymes and proteins required for plant growth, but can only be taken up by plants in the sulfate sulfur form. Elemental sulfur must be oxidized into sulfate, a process carried out by soil bacteria that chemically combines sulfur atoms with oxygen and water, before it is available to crops.

Clemson University opens high-tech lab to digitize agriculture

Clemson University’s Edisto Research and Education Center has added a laboratory to develop sensor technologies that will monitor the health of South Carolina farms. The high-tech sensor lab enables Clemson researchers to rapidly develop precision-agriculture technologies that once would take weeks or even months to build, test and refine. Products built here could save growers hours scouting fields and monitoring animal health, as well as reduce unnecessary pesticide applications or irrigation.


Canadian genomics project is leading the way in wheat breeding innovation

Wheat farmers have reason to celebrate, as the Canadian Triticum Applied Genomics (CTAG2) project is about to step up its contribution to the global effort to decipher the wheat genome, led by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC). The expected outcome is a new generation of wheat cultivars with higher yields and better resistance to stresses.
