Human activity has more than doubled the input of reactive nitrogen (N) to terrestrial systems, yet N availability remains a common limitation to plant production. Improved understanding of N cycling in agroecosystems is essential.
Greenville Research Farm
Grasses, legumes, cereal grains, vegetables, fruits and ornamental plants are bred and evaluated at the Greenville Research Farm in North Logan. The site was established for research in irrigated agriculture more than 100 years ago. Building on a history of developments in plant breeding, scientists continue to provide growers with new high quality, disease-resistant wheat and barley varieties.
Researchers use the site to study landscape plants, including turfgrasses, in efforts to help Utahns and others living in high desert climates to make wise use of limited water resources.
