SEMO receives $18,000 ag grant
The Department of Agriculture at Southeast Missouri State University has been awarded a two-year $18,000 grant, the university said in a release Monday. The grant will be used to evaluate methods to reduce nutrient losses from underground water systems.
"The challenge is to provide nutrients necessary for crops while maintaining environmental and water quality," said Dr. Indi Braden, professor of agriculture at Southeast. The project will allow the department "to provide real-world application of agronomic principles,"
Southeast will be partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service to research water quality management for the benefit of crops, fish, birds and other animals.
