Studying Soil Behavior Under Pressure Could Save Millions of Dollars

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Millions of dollars are spent fortifying dams to withstand earthquakes — but it may not be necessary. New research being conducted at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is examining whether or not that spending actually contributes to public safety.

Plant Gene Discovery Could Help Reduce Fertilizer Pollution in Waterways

Boyce Thompson Institute

Over-fertilization of agricultural fields is a huge environmental problem. Researchers from Boyce Thompson Institute uncovered the function of two genes that could help farmers improve crop uptake of phosphate fertilizer, potentially reducing the environmental harm associated with fertilization.

Maturity Becomes a Concern as Corn Harvest Approaches

Iowa State University

Iowans may notice combines harvesting corn deep into November due to the late start to planting last spring, according to Iowa State University agronomists. Much of the Iowa corn crop remains weeks behind schedule, and farmers will be paying close attention to temperature as their crop nears maturity and dries down.

Crowdsourced archaeology shows how humans have influenced Earth for thousands of years

University of Washington

A new map synthesized from more than 250 archaeologists worldwide, including from the University of Washington, argues that the human imprint on our planet's soil goes back much earlier than the nuclear age.
