Statewide Research and Education Facility Upgrades

Non-recurring request: $3.25 million

Responding to constituent demand, in recent years Clemson PSA has hired additional faculty to support South Carolina’s agriculture and natural resources industry. Clemson has also received funding from the state to purchase new equipment that is critical to the success of research programs. 

With the addition of new personnel comes the need for additional demonstration facilities, field laboratories, irrigation, greenhouse, and storage space at Clemson’s six Research and Education centers located throughout the state. 

This request is for non-recurring funds for facilities to increase Clemson PSA’s capacity to offer research and Extension programs throughout South Carolina and to enhance its ability to provide sound science-based solutions to issues impacting the state’s leading industry, agriculture and natural resources.

Field Facilities $1,400,000
Irrigations systems $600,000
Greenhouses $750,000
Equipment Storage $500,000
Total $3,250,000
