2015 – Project Justification – Addressing An Urgent Water Supply Need For A Disadvantaged Community In The Greater Monterey County Irwm Region, 2017 California State University, Monterey Bay

2015 – Project Justification – Addressing An Urgent Water Supply Need For A Disadvantaged Community In The Greater Monterey County Irwm Region

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

One hundred percent of Castroville’s water supply comes from the 400-foot aquifer of the Pressure sub-basin of the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin. Groundwater levels in the aquifer dropped more than 100 feet below the seal level as of July 2015 at static conditions. Water levels dropped to more than 190 feet below the mean sea level during operation of the water well. The dramatic drop combined with the close proximity of the Pacific Ocean (less than 4 miles) and to existing seawater intrusion (less than ¼ mile) raised significant alarm that the existing water supply system to Castroville was ...

Microbes must assimilate carbon to grow and colonize their niches. Transcript profiling has suggested that Candida albicans, a major pathogen of humans, regulates its carbon assimilation in an analogous fashion to the model yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, repressing metabolic pathways required for the use of alterative nonpreferred carbon sources when sugars are available. However, we show that there is significant dislocation between the proteome and transcriptome in C. albicans. Glucose triggers the degradation of the ICL1 and PCK1 transcripts in C. albicans, yet isocitrate lyase (Icl1) and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (Pck1) are stable and are retained. Indeed, numerous enzymes required for the ...


Adenovirus Prime, Env Protein Boost Vaccine Protects Against Neutralization-Resistant Sivsme660 Variants In Rhesus Monkeys, Brandon F. Keele, Wenjun Li, Erica N. Borducchi, Joseph P. Nkolola, Peter Abbink, Bing Chen, Michael S. Seaman, Dan H. Barouch 2017 Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research

Adenovirus Prime, Env Protein Boost Vaccine Protects Against Neutralization-Resistant Sivsme660 Variants In Rhesus Monkeys, Brandon F. Keele, Wenjun Li, Erica N. Borducchi, Joseph P. Nkolola, Peter Abbink, Bing Chen, Michael S. Seaman, Dan H. Barouch

Wenjun Li

Previous studies have shown that DNA prime, Ad5 boost vaccines protect against neutralization-sensitive but not neutralization-resistant virus variants within the SIVsmE660 swarm. Here we show that Ad prime, Env protein boost vaccines protect against neutralization-resistant SIVsmE660 variants. We perform two studies in rhesus monkeys with Ad35/Ad26 vectors expressing SIVmac239 Gag/Pol/Env with or without an AS01B-adjuvanted SIVmac32H gp140 protein boost. In a repetitive, low-dose challenge study, we observe robust protection against acquisition of infection by both Ad Alone and Ad/Env vaccines. In a single, high-dose challenge study, only the Ad/Env vaccine affords significant protection against acquisition ...

Genetic Analysis Of Anthocyanin Content In Purple Waxy Corn (Zea Mays L. Var. Ceratina Kulesh) Kernel And Cob, B. Harakotr, B. Suriharn, K. Lertrat, M. P. Scott

M. Paul Scott

Anthocyanins of pigmented corn become a topic of increasing interest recently due to consumer awareness of their various health benefits. A better understanding on the gene effects to anthocyanin is an important for high antioxidants breeding programs. The objective of the present study was to determine gene effect controlling of anthocyanin content in purple waxy corn kernel and cob by generation mean analysis. For the cross of KND 10-4P (P1) × BW (P2), F2, and backcross generations were developed. All generations were planted in the randomized complete block design (RCB) with 3 replications at the Khon Kaen University, Thailand. Genetic analysis ...


Phenotypic Characterization Of Inbred Lines And Their O2 Conversions, M. P. Scott 2017 United States Department of Agriculture

Phenotypic Characterization Of Inbred Lines And Their O2 Conversions, M. P. Scott

M. Paul Scott

Peter Loesh was a plant breeder at Iowa State University from 1971 to 1980. During this time, he worked extensively with the o2 mutation in an effort to improve the nutritional quality of maize. Unfortunately, he passed away suddenly, and this work was not brought to a conclusion. Some of his effort was devoted to developing o2 back-cross conversions of public domain inbred lines. Because Dr. Loesh’s field books have been lost, the extent of recovery of the recurrent parent phenotype is not known.


Tissue-Print Immunodetection Of Transgene Products In Endosperm For High-Throughput Screening Of Seeds, M. Paul Scott 2017 United States Department of Agriculture

Tissue-Print Immunodetection Of Transgene Products In Endosperm For High-Throughput Screening Of Seeds, M. Paul Scott

M. Paul Scott

This method allows high-throughput qualitative screening to identify seeds containing a transgene product in endosperm tissue. It is particularly useful for determining genetic segregation ratios or identifying seeds to be advanced in a breeding program. Tissue printing is used to avoid time-consuming extraction steps. Antibody-based detection of the transgene product makes this method suitable to any transgene product for which a specific antibody is available. It is possible to screen thousands of seeds per week using this method.


Comparison Of Tungsten Carbide And Stainless Steel Ball Bearings For Grinding Single Maize Kernels In A Reciprocating Grinder, Jay Hoch, Adrienne Moran Lauter, M. Paul Scott 2017 Iowa State University

Comparison Of Tungsten Carbide And Stainless Steel Ball Bearings For Grinding Single Maize Kernels In A Reciprocating Grinder, Jay Hoch, Adrienne Moran Lauter, M. Paul Scott

M. Paul Scott

When grinding many corn kernels at once, there are several different options to choose from, but single kernel grinding is limited to few options with relatively low throughput. An attractive alternative is a reciprocating grinder with 3/8” grinding balls and a 4ml polycarbonate vial set. This format allows grinding of 24 samples simultaneously, which is a significant improvement to grinding throughput. A reciprocating grinder like the Talboys HT Homogenizer (Troemner, Thorofare, NJ), operates by violently shaking the 4ml polycarbonate vials containing a bearing and a single kernel. In our experience, stainless steel ball bearings do not lead to a ...


Allelism Testing Of Maize Coop Stock Center Lines Containing Unknown Brown Midrib Alleles, L. J. Haney, S. Hake, M. P. Scott 2017 United States Department of Agriculture

Allelism Testing Of Maize Coop Stock Center Lines Containing Unknown Brown Midrib Alleles, L. J. Haney, S. Hake, M. P. Scott

M. Paul Scott

This report summarizes the allele testing of brown midrib stocks characterized by phenotype only in the Maize Coop Stock Center collection. Maize seeds obtained from the Maize Coop Stock Center were planted in the summer nursery of 2006 and 2007 at the Agronomy Farms of Iowa State University (Boone County, IA). Each of the lines containing a homozygous recessive unknown brown midrib allele was crossed to a series of lines, each containing a different homozygous recessive known brown midrib allele. The F1 plants were screened for reddishbrown pigmentation in the leaf midrib at the V8 stage of growth. Presence of ...


Effect Of Treatment And Cultivar On The Ensiling Of Corn Stover, R. E. Muck, J. G. Coors, T. L. Richard, M. P. Scott 2017 United States Department of Agriculture

Effect Of Treatment And Cultivar On The Ensiling Of Corn Stover, R. E. Muck, J. G. Coors, T. L. Richard, M. P. Scott

M. Paul Scott

Nine cultivars of corn stover selected for ethanol potential were harvested (34 to 40% dry matter) and each ensiled with six treatments: untreated, lactic acid bacteria, cell-wall degrading enzymes, sulfuric acid, bacteria-enzyme combination and enzyme-acid combination. Ensiling was carried out in vacuum-sealed bags at ~22°C for 60 d. The untreated stovers ensiled well. Lactic acid bacteria and enzyme treatments had no effect on pH, but the bacteria-enzyme combination lowered pH in some cultivars. The acid and acid-enzyme treatments had low pH values ranging from 1.3 to 1.5. Lactic acid was generally highest in the bacteria-enzyme treatment whereas ...


Trade Balances, Wesley Peterson, Marianna Khachaturyan 2017 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Trade Balances, Wesley Peterson, Marianna Khachaturyan

Cornhusker Economics

The fact that the United States has a global trade deficit as well as bilateral trade deficits with particular countries, such as China or Germany, has recently received extensive commentary in the news (see Irwin 2016, Constable 2017, Goodman 2017). The balance of trade is the difference between the value of a country’s imports of goods and services and the value of its exports and can be either negative (deficit) or positive (surplus). Trade balances between two countries are actually of little economic interest as countries always have trade surpluses with some countries while having trade deficits with others ...

The Impurities Of Clover Seed, F. C. Stewart

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

The clover growing area of the United States embraces the states of California and Tennessee and all the region lying north of the parallel of 36° north latitude, between the Rocky Mountains on the west and the Atlantic Ocean on the east. In this part of the United States Red Clover has become an important agricultural plant. Clover seed is shipped by the carload from place to place and even across the water.

It is a well known fact that clover seed is one of the most impure seeds on the market. The majority of our troublesome weeds are naturalized ...


Some Bacteriological Work In The Dairy, L. H. Pammel 2017 Iowa State College

Some Bacteriological Work In The Dairy, L. H. Pammel

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

Every wide-awake dairyman takes an interest in the subject of bacteriology as related to the various dairy problems.

Iowa dairymen have taken much interest in this subject owing largely to the fact that dairy papers, dairy columns in agricultural papers have, been discussing this subject in an intelligent manner. Then, too, several American publications, notably Conn1 has given us an excellent summary of the work done in Europe and this country. The amount of original work in this line in the United States is comparatively small, most of it having been done by Prof. Conn in Connecticut We must ...


An Aromatic Bacillus Of Cheese, L. H. Pammel 2017 Iowa State College

An Aromatic Bacillus Of Cheese, L. H. Pammel

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

During the fall of 1892 my attention was called to a rot of cabbage which was doing serious damage. An isolation of the germs responsible for the disease was undertaken, since none of the higher fungi seemed to be present. Among the germs present was one that had a very striking and peculiar odor when grown in bouillon. It was not unlike that peculiar to Limburger cheese. It resembled old and well-cured cheese. The same germ grown in agar had a pleasant, aromatic and nut-like odor, wholly different than the odor i* bouillon. I suggested to Mr. Wallace, who was ...


Sweet Versus Ripened Cream Butter, G. E. Patrick, F. A. Leighton, W. H. Heileman 2017 Iowa State College

Sweet Versus Ripened Cream Butter, G. E. Patrick, F. A. Leighton, W. H. Heileman

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

The experiments here described are similar to those described in Bulletin No. 18, but differ from them in that the cream is here ripened for a shorter time.

Ia each trial a quantity of thoroughly mixed cream, fresh from the separator, was divided into two parts, one of which was churned within a few hours, while still sweet; the other the next day after ripening (at about 60° F.) for 17 to 21 hours. Salt and color were proportionately the same in all cases.


When To Cut Corn, D. A. Kent, G. E. Patrick, E. N. Eaton, W. H. Heileman 2017 Iowa State College

When To Cut Corn, D. A. Kent, G. E. Patrick, E. N. Eaton, W. H. Heileman

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

The object of the following experiment is to determine the proper time to cut corn, so as to get the most profitable returns from the crop. The ear is the most valuable part of the corn crop for the western farmer, but there is great value in the stover. Hence, it is important to know whether we can obtain both these values in full, or whether obtaining full value of the one necessitates a decrease in the value of the other.

We selected twelve rows of Learning corn, of even quality and quantity, and long enough to make four shocks ...


Shrinkage Of Wool, C. F. Curtiss 2017 Iowa State College

Shrinkage Of Wool, C. F. Curtiss

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

It is often desirable to know the loss occasioned by shrink age in handling and holding wool under varying conditions. With this end in view, as well as to make a comparison of different methods of storing wool, twenty-four fleeces, divided into four lots, were stored by three different methods and weighed periodically (generally monthly) for a year. Three lots of the wool were from high grade Shropshire sheep, clipped from between the 14th and 18th of April, 1892.

One lot, consisting of five fleeces was weighed, fleeces separately, and packed in a dry clean box just large enough to ...


Feeding Colts, C. F. Curtiss 2017 Iowa State College

Feeding Colts, C. F. Curtiss

Bulletin (Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station)

In the winter of 1891 and ’92 an experiment was made by this station in determining the value of different methods of wintering weanling colts. As the experiment here reported is of the same character, made with the same colts, and supplementary to the former, we here repeat the description of the animals under experiment. “The colts used in making the trials consisted of six head of imported Alleys, two Percherons, Victoreuse (37255) 16080, and Miss (37162) 16079, two English Shires, Stuntney Victoria 3925, and Stuntney Alexandria 3924, and two French Coach, Neomie 1117 and Normandie 1118. The Percherons are ...
