We are excited to announce that Dr. Steve Culman has been awarded a 2017 New Innovator in Food and Agriculture Research Award from the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research. Innovator awards are provided to early career scientists to help launch their careers in food and agriculture. This award allows recipients the freedom to pursue innovative and transformational research ideas that might not be possible with a traditional research grant. Steve's work will focus on using active organic matter testing to help predict crop nutrient needs. You can learn more about his research project by clicking here.
