    FABE Researchers Receive $5 Million Grant to Study Runoff from Elevated Phosphorus Fields

    Nov 9, 2018

    Some farm fields in northwest Ohio’s Maumee River watershed have more phosphorus than their crops can use. Called “elevated phosphorus fields,” such fields may be at higher risk of contributing to Lake Erie’s harmful algal blooms. That’s the premise of a new five-year, $5 million study that hopes to learn about those fields and lower that risk by creating new public-private partnerships.

    With the ball gripped tightly in his hand, he was centered atop the pitcher’s mound. The crowd was booming, and the lighting of the field seemed like it was only shining on him. This was the last inning. Justin finally shifted his gaze to meet his opponent, the batter, as a bead of sweat made its way down his forehead. He took a deep, heavy breath, winded up, and released.

    While he is not performing his role in the Army National Guard as a team leader, he is focusing his time on his education and other civilian duties. 

    Manny grew up in Canal Winchester, where he was a part of his high school’s football and wrestling teams. Upon graduating, however, he decided to step away from sports to further his academics. Manny simultaneously enlisted in the military and began his college career at University of Toledo in 2014.

  10. The intelligent sprayer testing and design team

    USDA and FABE Develop Worlds First Intelligent Sprayer

    Jul 23, 2018

    It’s not often that a grower comes across a piece of new equipment that can give a full return on investment in one year and can reduce their farm’s impact on the environment. But a device developed by researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) is promising just that. Their “intelligent sprayer” is the first automatic spraying system of its kind in the world. “Using conventional sprayers, growers simply turn on the sprayer at one end of the row of trees and stop spraying at the other end,” said Erdal Ozkan, professor of agricultural engineering in the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering (FABE).
