The Center for Urban Research, Engagement, and Scholarship (CURES) at UDC is partnering with urban and small-scale farms to study the effects of locally sourced yard waste mulch on the production of sweet potatoes and hot peppers.
We measure the impact of this agricultural method on crop yield and nutrient quality, soil environmental conditions and nutrient content, and weed pressure. This project is funded by the Fulbright Program and a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the USDA-AMS and implemented, in collaboration, with the University of the West Indies at Cave Hill, Barbados. #udccauses #udcfirebirds #udc1851
