  1. 100% Turning Agriculture Byproducts Into Homes
    Date: August 09, 2011

    "A group of students and educators in northeast Kansas have been learning recently about a relatively new building technique — constructing a home with 18-inch thick straw bale walls, with lumber at the corners and bamboo rods for extra support. The Lawrence-Journal World reports the technique creates a well-insulated home and makes use of an agricultural byproduct. However, many cities, including Lawrence, won’t approve plans for a straw bale home unless it comes with a detailed engineering report or tests to prove the integrity of the structure, the report says."

    "Baling hay at the optimum moisture content can be a tricky business, which often involves some guesswork and cooperation from the weather. Baling at moisture levels above the optimum will cause heating and spoilage of the hay."

  5. 51% A Quick Look At Hay Preservatives
    Date: May 31, 2005
    Source: Penn State Field Crop News

    "Generally, hay with a moisture content of 20% or less will not spoil during storage. Large round bales should contain hay that is slightly drier (approximately 18%). Unfortunately, field curing hay down to 20% moisture or lower is often difficult without having it rained on once or twice. Hay preservatives may allow baling and storage of hay with moisture levels between 20 and 25%."

  8. 42% Cellulosic Ethanol: Expanding Options, Identifying Obstacles
    Date: April 09, 2010
    Source: USDA Agricultural Research Service

    " Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists are figuring out how to turn wheat straw into ethanol “gold,” and learning more about the bacteria that can “infect” ethanol plants and interfere with fuel production. At the ARS National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research (NCAUR) in Peoria, Ill., ARS chemist Badal Saha conducted a 5-year study that examined whether wheat straw—a crop residue left over after the grain has been harvested—could have commercial potential for cellulosic ethanol production. Saha found he could access and ferment almost all the plant sugars in the biofeedstock when it was pretreated with alkaline peroxide and then broken down by enzymes. This process released even hard-to-reach sugars in plant cell walls, which significantly boosted the overall ethanol output to around 93 gallons per ton of wheat straw. But the same environments that facilitate fermentation can also nurture microorganisms that ..."
