Agriculture Student Research

Agriculture Student Research

Southeast agriculture students conducted herbicide trials and research as part of plant science research at the David M. Barton Agricultural Research Center. The trials and research are part of weed science, soil fertility, and plant nutrition courses. Students are learning how to address weeds present in pastures and develop a management plan to improve agricultural productivity and farm profitability. Additionally, students will develop a soil fertility plan specific to the culture of tall fescue, a common grass species.

The results will be used to improve agricultural productivity and farm profitability and the work provides Southeast students the opportunity to combine hands-on learning and scientific research experience with their agriculture education.
