ECO-CBET: Foliar Applied Plant-Activated Nitrogen Delivery Agents for Sustainable Crop Production

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Statement of work for the University of Kentucky ECO-CBET- Foliar applied plant-activated nitrogen delivery agents for sustainable crop production. Greg Lowry (Overall PI), Olga Tsyusko (PI for UK). Project performance dates 9/1/2021-8/31/2025 The University of Kentucky will be responsible for experiments that determine plant nitrogen use efficiency of the developed delivery agents, fate of nitrogen in greenhouse applications, plant health, growth and development. The University of Kentucky will also be responsible for screening toxicity of candidate delivery agents using the C. elegans toxicity testing system and determining effects on soil biology (fatty acid methyl ester analysis and soil enzyme activities), reproductive toxicity in earthworms.
