  • Crops (cotton and peanut) for which are the main focus of Dr. Harris soil fertility responsibilities have an aggregate farm gate value of $1.1 billion in Georgia in 2009 and were planted on 2.1 million acres in GA.


Achievements1

Achievements

  • Publications from this program – referred journal articles, abstracts, popular press articles, regional bulletins, newsletters, radio and tv

  • Dr. Harris is recognized as one of the leading experts in the nation on potassium management in cotton


Achievements potassium deficiency and leafspot disease

AchievementsPotassium deficiency and leafspot disease

  • Following a shift from full-season varieties to newer short season varieties there was a prevalence of potassium deficiency and an associated leafspot disease occurring in cotton in Georgia and throughout the southeast.

  • Dr. Harris conducted studies to investigate the potassium nutrition needs of these new varieties and hot to meet these needs.

  • Studies included K rates, sources, timing and placement of potassium fertilizers as well as foliar fertilization of K on cotton. Dr. Harris is now recognized as a leading expert in this topic.


Achievements calcium nutrition in peanut

AchievementsCalcium Nutrition in Peanut

  • A variety shift in peanut resulted in recognition of an important soil fertility issue in peanut.

  • Shift from small-seeded runner peanut to large-seeded runners caused an increased awareness for the need of calcium.

  • Dr. Harris, in conjunction with Dr. John Beasley conducted calcium rate, source and timing field studies on these new peanut varieties.

  • Calcium in the seed and seed germination were measured in addition to yield and grade of the mature peanuts.


Achievements calcium nutrition in peanut1

AchievementsCalcium Nutrition in Peanut

  • Beneficiaries of this research work on calcium are the Georgia peanut grower, peanut seed companies and the Georgia Foundation Seed Industry.

  • This early collaboration with other faculty members has resulted in additional collaborations for Dr. Harris such as those with Dr. Scott Tubbs, Cropping Systems Agronomist and Dr. Mike Toews, Cotton Research Entomologist resulting in annual support from the Cotton Commission to the UGA Cotton team of more than $1.5 million in competitive grants.
