After much discussion and careful consideration for the health and wellbeing of the public, Clemson University has decided to cancel the 2021 Edisto REC Peanut, Horticulture and Agronomic Crop Field Day planned for September 16th.  We look forward to resuming this field day in 2022.  We will develop a publication which will include the information that was to be presented at this Field Day.  You will receive a follow up notification when that publication is ready for viewing and a link to access it.  Thank you for your continued interest and support of the programs at Edisto REC.


The Edisto Research & Education Center is located in Barnwell County, where scientists have studied and developed agricultural production practices since 1937. Currently, the main research focus at Edisto REC is precision agriculture, where temporal and spatial data are used to drive agricultural management decisions in an effort to maximize resource utilization efficiency, profitability, and sustainability. Research and Extension programs currently represented at Edisto REC include: Agricultural Engineering, Animal Feed Grains, Livestock and Forages, Entomology, Irrigation, Peanut Production, Plant Pathology, Precision Agriculture, Sensor Utilization and Automation, Soil Fertility, Weed Science, and Vegetable Production.

Edisto REC contains 2,354 acres of row crop, pasture, and forested land in the coastal plain of South Carolina, providing the ability to investigate many diverse areas of agriculture. Scientists at Edisto REC regularly collaborate with growers and industry professionals throughout South Carolina and beyond to conduct on-farm and on-station replicated trials and demonstrations. The research conducted at Edisto REC helps South Carolina farmers operate more profitably and more sustainably.
