During your time in CAFLS, you proved your excellence and showed your mettle by winning regional agribusiness competitions, national leadership awards, national research poster and presentation awards, national packaging science awards, and soil judging competitions. You spent your summers on amazing internships. You took cross-country bicycle trips to raise money for affordable housing, started a foundation to match shelter dogs with veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and cultivated and harvested deer corn that you sold to raise money for wounded soldiers.
CLEMSON – The knowledge Spencer McLeod acquired during his years at Clemson University and experience he gained working on his family’s farm in McBee sparked him to create a mobile app he hopes will soon help increase farm efficiency.

Freedom is earned by those who aren't afraid to give a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Some Clemson students are giving a little of their own sweat to help repay America’s veterans. The students grew a 5-acre plot of corn in The Bottoms on Clemson's campus and are selling it for deer corn. Proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Driving too quickly can lead to significant losses when digging peanuts, according to a recent study by Clemson University agricultural engineer Kendall Kirk.
Tests on new nutrient-management technology under development at Clemson University showed savings of up to $54 an acre on cotton production. In another test, Clemson automated tillage technology reduced fuel usage by nearly half on soil tillage needed to protect row crop yields. These are two technologies on display at a recent field day at Clemson's Edisto Research and Education Center.
A group of Clemson agricultural mechanization and business students are building a tabletop variable depth-control peanut digger to help South Carolina producers increase their profits.
Clemson University graduate student Jordan Breland is working with agricultural engineer Bulent Koc to develop equipment used in a unique method of combatting Armillaria root rot that is deadly to peach trees.
Clemson University agricultural engineer Kendall Kirk has developed free software to help farmers track soil sampling throughout fields with a global positioning system. Accurate soil data can help growers maximize yields or lower operating costs by optimizing nutrient inputs.
A group of Clemson University students is taking its cotton picking show on the road to raise awareness about agriculture.
