AFSRC has a long history of researching ways to alleviate soil limitations to plant production in the Appalachian Region. Two AFSRC employees, in this vintage photo, are measuring corn response to soil amendments to alleviate soil acidity. Today, AFSRC scientists are gathering information about soil components and processes that will improve pasture and amenity grass establishment and function in Appalachian hill-land grazing and turfgrass ecosystems.
