A new study by researchers with the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture will evaluate pastures to document how management of native grasslands may enhance soil biodiversity and contribute to producer profitability.
Including small grains and pasture in crop rotations, and in some cases reducing tillage, can have a significant effect on soil health, according to a joint Purdue-U.S. Department of Agriculture study.
Adding a cover crop that livestock can graze to the rotation plan can improve soil health and help protect the environment. That's the premise behind a four-year, nearly $4 million U.S. Department of Agriculture project, ...
Homes, schools and a day care center near a closed battery recycler in nearby Vernon are contaminated with higher levels of brain-damaging lead than previously disclosed, with soil samples at one property as much as 100 times ...
For years, the city of Flint has been trying to fight another battle with lead...and it lies within the soil.
Colorado State University's Diana Wall and coauthors make the case to integrate soil biodiversity research into human health studies in a paper published online in Nature November 23.
We're running out of effective antibiotics, and people are starting to die as a result. The problem is so acute that the World Health Organization has declared this week, Nov. 16-22, Antibiotics Awareness Week – but antibiotic ...
Researchers from UPM the assess the human health risk of exposure to metals in urban gardens by assessing their oral bioaccessibility.
A recent study led by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou could very well change the way we view the health of our nation's soil, even potentially altering history books.
Researchers from the Centre for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics (UPM-INIA) have developed a method to obtain a clean organic fertilizer that is able to regenerate degraded soil caused by overharvesting.
