In other work with Hagerman, AFSRC plant physiologist Thomas Kinraide found that binding by tannins may alleviate the toxic effects of metals, such as aluminum, on root growth.
A cooperative agreement, combining the capabilities of Hagerman's lab with those of AFSRC, was developed to identify important features of tannins that determine their interaction with soils.
Other AFSRC scientists, including chemist Joyce Foster and animal scientist Kenneth Turner, are evaluating the nutritional and deworming potential of tannin-containing forages, like birdsfoot trefoil for goats.
