Mid-South soybean/corn research with Larry Purcell

Crop physiologist Larry Purcell’s research at the University of Arkansas focuses mostly on soybeans. Lately that means studying “how we can utilize the resources of light, water and nutrients more efficiently through crop management and genetic differences among lines.”

For story, see here.

Another research project involves the possibility of eventually developing a smart phone app that provides a reading of “corn leaf nitrogen concentration just by taking a photograph."
