Clemson Extension agents are continually providing information and technical assistance to farmers and timberland owners across South Carolina who want to incorporate ecologically friendly methods of restoration into their landscapes.
Though the extent of Hurricane Matthew's damage is yet to be determined, tens of thousands of acres of cotton, peanuts, soybeans, turnips, brassicas, collards and spinach all took significant beatings in South Carolina.
Clemson University’s Coastal Research and Education Center sustained significant crop damage over the weekend when Hurricane Matthew pounded portions of South Carolina with wind, rain and floodwaters.
Though Hurricane Matthew continues on course to threaten the coasts of at least three southeastern states, it appears likely that its projected path will not extend far enough inland to have much of an effect on the upcoming fall color season, which is already under way in the upper heights.
Despite the looming hurricane, there is still time to take steps to ensure that your pond dam has the best chance of surviving raging flood waters.
An army of thorny, poisonous plants that once occupied two prime acres of Clemson University real estate has been swept from its stronghold by a coalition of goats and humans that slowly but surely pounded the gnarled invaders into submission. And to the victor goes the spoils. A once-impenetrable stretch of forest has been made beautiful again, much to the delight of the faculty, students and tailgaters who frequent its borders.
BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS – With the fall color season just around the corner, leaf seekers in the Upstate and beyond are already making plans to head to the mountains for stops at dozens of overlooks to enjoy the magnificent vistas viewed from the upper heights of the nearby southern Blue Ridge Mountains. As if crystal-clear […]
Despite stubborn summertime drought conditions in the Southeast that plagued many of the places favored by leaf seekers, it remains likely that this year’s fall foliage season will be good and in some locations downright spectacular.
Clemson University scientist David Feliciano recently received a three-year, $442,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study how alterations to a complex pathway in the developing brain cause a constellation of neurological disorders.
Clemson researchers Feng Ding and Weiguo Cao recently received a collaborative $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to attain a deeper understanding of the intricate inner workings of Type 2 diabetes.
Clemson University scientist William “Bill” Baldwin recently received a three-year, $362,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue studies on how exposure to chemicals is likely to inhibit our bodies’ internal mechanisms, which could increase the risk and severity of obesity in millions of people in the United States and billions worldwide.
A pair of Clemson scientists has spent the past decade exploring the intricacies of the butterfly proboscis, one of nature’s most multifarious body parts. Their ever-increasing fount of knowledge is expected to eventually lead to manufactured devices that could revolutionize medical procedures and other yet-to-be-conceived applications.
A rumbling robot and several high-flying drones recently made an on-site appearance at Clemson University to burrow through and buzz above 15 acres of experimental sorghum plots containing more than 2,800 replicated entries at Simpson Research Farm.
Clemson University’s Institute of Translational Genomics will soon expand its reach with the addition of a three-year fellowship program designed to recruit and develop future leaders in the burgeoning field of agriculturally oriented computational science.
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
