Elevated Warming, Ozone Have Detrimental Effects on Plant Roots, Promote Soil Carbon Loss
Soybean plant roots weaken when placed under climate change stresses, a new study shows.
Can Soil Carbon Fast Forward The Transition To Organic Farming?
One of the biggest barriers to organic farming is the transition period lag in soil health metrics. A group of NC State researchers is investigating if soil carbon can fast forward the soil health benefits of organic farming.
$8.1M+ in Private Gifts Invigorate Greenhouse Gas Research in Agriculture
NC State’s Department of Crop and Soil Sciences is delighted to announce a series of planned and current gifts totaling over $8M to enhance the study of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation through agriculture.
Measuring Greenhouse Gases Starts in Soil
Researchers from NC State’s Crop and Soil Sciences and the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) are pioneering research methodology to understand and harness the power of our soil to affect climate change.
Mapping Wetland Soils Guides NC Coastal Land Use
Salt and sediment usually convey a negative connotation in environmental contexts. But researchers like Dr. Matthew Ricker, NC State Crop & Soil Sciences, report that their threat or value depends on where they occur.
