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.
Joseph C. Semsar, acting Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade at the International Trade Administration (ITA) and a Clemson alumnus, recently paid a visit to his alma mater as part of an official two-day trip to the Upstate.
Clemson University’s main campus covers some 17,000 acres, but the Tiger paw also adorns dozens of satellite campuses and research centers placed across the entire expanse of South Carolina. One of those orange dots on the map is the Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic in Pendleton, which is where you’ll find diagnostician and manager Meg […]
CLEMSON – Sweltering temperatures and low-moisture conditions can have a large impact on South Carolina soybeans, causing farmers to turn away from one of the state’s highest-yielding crops. But, some Clemson researchers are studying how to develop soybean varieties that can germinate and grow under drought conditions. Sruthi Narayanan, an assistant professor of crop science […]
A customizable, hands-on virtual reality and advanced display system is under development at Clemson University that could change how scientists across the country share information and collaborate, as well as how students learn. The project is one of two grants recently awarded by the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation program (MRI). An MRI grant awarded to environmental researcher Thomas O’Halloran funds the acquisition of a soil greenhouse gas flux measuring system that will help scientists better understand the release of harmful greenhouse gases from the soil to the atmosphere.
A Clemson University scientist is sending his research on the cotton genome into outer space after being selected as a winner in the Cotton Sustainability Challenge. Christopher Saski, associate professor in the plant and environmental sciences department, is the principal investigator on a project that seeks to explore the cotton genome and how it reacts in microgravity and normal gravity.
With the help of the Clemson University Research Foundation, this Tiger filed for and finally obtained a patent for his research that could revolutionize the fertilization process of organic crops.
The Clemson Caribbean Initiative (CCI) has awarded five interdisciplinary seed grants totaling $50,000 to teams of Clemson faculty to help advance their research and scholarship, teaching and service in the Caribbean region.
Ever think about the food you eat? This Tiger does. As a child, he picked peaches each summer on his parents’ farm. Today, he conducts research on them as well as a variety of other fruits and vegetables. Consistent with Clemson’s land-grant mission, this Tiger shares best practices with farmers and educates the public – […]
In their ongoing quest to revive and preserve ancestral grains, a Clemson University scientist and his collaborators have begun the process of restoring a nearly extinct variety of wheat that traces its American roots to the 1700s.
Clemson University’s Advanced Plant Technology Program — headed by geneticist Stephen Kresovich and comprised of a multifaceted team of renowned scientists — continues to stretch the limits of agricultural research in genetics, bioinformatics, computational biology and robotics.
In the scientific community, opinions vary as to when human beings will finally use up Earth’s underground reserves of petroleum. Thirty years? Fifty years? One hundred years? Biofuel, which is broadly defined as a fuel produced directly or indirectly from plant materials and animal waste, is a recycled product that is friendly to the environment.
BLACKVILLE — Watermelon growers could earn about $1,500 more per acre with timely fungicide applications, according to Clemson University Extension specialist Anthony Keinath. And if they apply pesticides in the evening, they’re less likely to disturb bees, important pollinators for fruit and vegetable production, said Extension bee specialist Jennifer Tsuruda.
Talk about going out on a high note. Paul M. Horton, better known simply as “Mac,” has retired after more than 45 years as a student, faculty member and administrator in Public Service and Agriculture at Clemson University.
Clemson University’s Institute of Translational Genomics, led by geneticist Stephen Kresovich, has been awarded $6 million by Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy as one of six projects seeking to accelerate the development of sustainable energy crops for the production of renewable transportation fuels.
