Research Project: Impact of Fgd Gypsum on Crop Yield, Soil Chemical Properties, and Soil Physical Properties in the Tennessee Valley Region of North Alabama

Location: National Soil Dynamics Laboratory

Project Number: 6420-12000-010-13
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: May 15, 2012
End Date: May 14, 2017

Objective:
This research will evaluate Flue Gas Desulfurization's (FGD) gypsum’s impact on the agronomic yield potential; evaluate the impact that FGD gypsum has on soil chemical properties; and evaluate the impact FGD gypsum has on changes in soil physical properties.

Approach:
The main focus of this project is to develop best management practices that include Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) gypsum and evaluates its effectiveness in improving soil and crop productivity.
