Student’s Enthusiasm for Soil Science Earns Her Accolades
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/student-s-enthusiasm-for-soil-science-earns-her-accolades
Monica Malone’s Honors Science Fair project placed first in the region and sent her to an international competition. Congratulations to Monica and all her recent success!
Student’s Enthusiasm for Soil Science Earns Her Accolades, “I met Monica when she came, for which Terry began working in soil science education. “I knew that till versus no-till was a hot, studied the microbes in till vs no-till agricultural land. Tilling soil is essentially turning it over, to plant in soil that has not been tilled. Many farmers have switched over to no-till agriculture, because tilling soil has many negative effects such as destruction of soil structure, soil erosion

MO DIRT will use citizen scientists to collect and analyze soil samples and record meteorological information in their communities.
Citizen Science Project Focuses on Neglected Resource, Each year on World Soil Day, December 5th, people from around the globe celebrate the importance of soil as the basis for food, feed, fuel, fiber production and for services to ecosystems. Awareness and momentum gained on World Soil Day, Together (MO DIRT) to promote greater understanding of the significance of soil to humanity. By examining the climate-soil interface across the state of Missouri, citizen scientists will collect

As the U.S. Open tees off this week, the Donald Danforth Plant Science could be at the forefront of slowing turf damage after receiving a $30,000 grant from the U.S. Golf Association.
(St. Louis Business Journal) Danforth Center to Study How to Slow Golf Turf Damage , As the U.S. Open tees off this week, the Donald Danforth Plant Science could be at the forefront of slowing turf damage after receiving a $30,000 grant from the U.S. Golf Association. Soil salinization, in which the salt content of soil increases, impacts almost 5,000 acres a day globally, according to the Danforth Center. Read the full article here. , (Collection), (Collection)

Until now, the only way for plant scientists to observe in-field root development has been to extract roots from the soil. Imaging technology will enable research without adversely affecting plant development, according to the organizations.
(Agri-View) Root Research Uses Real-Time Imaging, Advanced imaging technology will allow real-time gathering of plant root-growth data in a non-destructive manner, according to Valent BioSciences Corporation and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. The organizations have finalized a multi-year agreement in the area of root research. Until now, the only way for plant scientists to observe in-field root development has been to extract roots from the soil. Imaging technology will enable

What Roots Can Tell Us About Sustainable Agriculture

on water or nutrient uptake and interactions. However, roots are playing a role in both plant and soil health. And soil health is key, not only in long-term agriculture, but also in seasonal water, soil profile, which is often very hard, hot and/or dry. The end goal of this research, to grow nodal roots deep into the soil profile, extracting previously unavailable water, the soil system in which they grow in the long term? The answer to this question concretely resides
