Location: National Soil Dynamics Laboratory

Project Number: 6420-12000-010-10
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2016

Objective:
To Determine guidelines for agricultural uses of FGD-Gypsum.

Approach:
Field and greenhouse research projects will be conducted to determine the appropriate rates, methods, and frequency of FGD gypsum applications in agriculture systems. Studies will be conducted to determine the suitability of FGD gypsum in horticulture production. Field sites will be used to determine FGD gypsum use in turf grass fertility.
