Grants and Contracts Details


We are proposing the purchase of a modern plot combine capable of accurately determining and recording yield, grain moisture, and test weight. The primary goal of a new combine is to allow for more research throughout Western Kentucky resulting in higher quality harvest data that will be extended to producers. The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (UK CAFE), through the Research and Education Center (UKREC) in Princeton offer a unique opportunity for collaborative research across numerous disciplines. The UKREC currently houses extension specialists from three departments with active program focusing on soybean production. These departments include Plant Pathology, Entomology, Plant and Soil Sciences. Additional research trials at UKREC are being conducted by and with researchers and graduate students from Lexington. This collaboration includes both on and off station research. At the present time, research being conducted includes: understanding fragipan/yield interactions, alternative management strategies to contend with glyphosate resistant weeds, crop rotation effects on soybean yield, external stressors as they influence soybean yield, and interactions with poultry litter, soil properties, and soybean yield.
