Sugarcane aphid, drones and bioenergy highlight Pee Dee field day

Concern about sugarcane aphids in grain sorghum lead discussion, and new cotton, sorghum and peanut varieties were highlighted at the 2015 Pee Dee Farm Field Day held at Clemson University’s Pee Dee Research & Education Center in Florence, S.C. on Sept. 10.

Advice on the comparative benefits of calcitic and dolomitic limestone was presented  and the benefits of sensor based nitrogen management was discussed. A highlight of the field day was an unmanned aerial vehicle demonstration. Clemson is active in UAV research at both the Pee Dee Center and the Edisto Research and Education Center in Blackville.
