April 30, 2013
By

An International Geneticist will join with Clemson University in research which may lead to new and improved crops and varieties. Stephen Kresovich will join Clemson’s Advanced Plant Technology Program which is based at the Pee Dee Research and Education Center.  The Advanced Plant Technology program focuses on improving the value of South Carolina’s agronomic crops, such as soybeans, cotton and peanuts. Varieties and production and processing methods developed through research and extension efforts can be applied statewide to enhance crop production and value for farmers and forestland managers. The program will complement ongoing plant science research at the Pee Dee center and at Clemson’s Edisto and Coastal research and education centers in Blackville and Charleston, respectively. In 2012, South Carolina growers planted 380,000 acres in soybeans; 340,000 acres of cotton and 110,000 acres in peanuts, according to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service.
