Impact of Fgd Gypsum on Crop Yield, Soil Chemical Properties, and Soil Physical Properties in the Tennessee Valley Region of North Alabama
National Soil Dynamics Laboratory
Project Number: 6420-12000-010-13
Start Date: May 15, 2012
End Date: May 14, 2017
This research will evaluate Flue Gas Desulfurization's (FGD) gypsum’s impact on the agronomic yield potential; evaluate the impact that FGD gypsum has on soil chemical properties; and evaluate the impact FGD gypsum has on changes in soil physical properties.
The main focus of this project is to develop best management practices that include Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) gypsum and evaluates its effectiveness in improving soil and crop productivity.
