$1.2 million grant to support Clemson precision agriculture cotton research
Date:9/23/2010

atewide Extension precision agriculture specialist at the Edisto research center, who will lead training programs for county agents, consultants, technology providers and dealers.
  • Richard Hallman, biosystems engineering research technician at the Edisto research center, who will be involved in all aspects of this project.

    Three nematode species the reniform, southern root-knot and Columbia lance represent the single most costly threat to cotton production in the mid-South and southeastern United States.

    The reniform nematode, in particular, has increased dramatically throughout the South in the last 20 years, Khalilian said. Historically, it was confined to the extreme southern coastal plain.

    "The rather rapid spread of this nematode pest through southern states has prompted considerable concern among cotton producers," he said.
