The program working to deliver state-of-the art plant science technology to meet identified conservation needs. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
The Brooksville Plant Materials Center is one of 25 Plant Material Centers, strategically located throughout the nation, that are working to deliver state-of-the-art plant science technology to meet identified conservation needs.
Just north of Brooksville, Florida and about 15 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, the site includes 53 acres of cleared fields to use for plant research and production and 116 acres of woodland on the property as well as an office building and other facilities .
Improving the health of soils used for cropland and grazing lands is the principal resource concern on which the Brooksville PMC is focusing its research efforts. Other resource concerns that are continuing to be addressed: plants and plant technology to improve water quality, provide habitat habitat, control erosion, and increase forage production.
