    "Drought. This simple word can have several different meanings and implications to various people. From watering restrictions on lawns in cities and catastrophic crop failures in farming, to needing to haul water to animals and trying to produce ..."

  3. 94% 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 ..."

  4. 93% 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."

  5. 93% Agricultural Waste Could Be Used As Biofuel

    "Our barley this year yielded more than I expected, and averaged over 100 bushels per acre in our variety tests. Our test at Landisville was a bit lower, but did surprisingly well too. Growers who had similar grain and good straw yields and prices were pleased with the crop."

  8. 88% Fuel From Crop Residue: Possible Solution For The Grass Seed Industry
    Date: August 31, 2006

    "Illegal to burn and expensive to move, straw creates serious disposal problems for the grass seed industry. That’s why two Agricultural Research Service (ARS) labs are collaborating with scientists from the Laramie, Wyoming, Western Research Institute to develop a small-scale gasification reactor."
