    Document Overview:
    Megacopta belongs to an insect family that doesn't occur naturally anywhere in the Americas. [...]importing its coevolved natural enemies isn't expected to endanger native U.S. bug species. On a related front, Jones's lab has devised a procedure for freezing Megacopta eggs and thawing them as needed, which will help with timing the mass production and release of the wasps. Besides the wasp evaluations, this effort includes tracking Megacopta (it has spread to Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia) and genetic fingerprinting.

    Document Overview:
    Harris-Shultz collected 15 Tifgreenderived cultivars from golf courses and research partners, extracted DNA from them, and with the help of an existing DNA database, she developed a tool to help distinguish bermudagrass cultivars and identify contaminants. The results, published in the Journal of the American Society of Horticultural Sciences, identify "repeatable polymorphic fragments" of DNA that are unique for each cultivar and can be used not only to distinguish among the different grasses, but also to trace relationships between them.-By Dennis O'Brien, ARS.

    Document Overview:
    A new type of EPG, developed by Elaine Backus, an ARS entomologist at the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Sciences Center, in Parlier, California, and the late William Bennett, formerly from the University of Missouri, is giving scientists the clearest window yet into the wars waged between piercingsucking insects and the plants they infest. Because these insects are often carriers of plant pathogens that are transmitted through feeding, EPG can also illuminate how pathogens are injected into the plant to start the infection process. The New Monitor's Advantages Traditionally, monitors have been designed to work with either AC or DC current. Because of the physics that govern electricity and the flow of electrical current, researchers have gotten the best results when using AC monitors to study larger insects and DC monitors to study smaller ones.

    Document Overview:
    Sugar beet seedling emergence increased 6.4 percent when droplet energy was reduced 50 percent from the highest rate studied, an emergence increase that could raise net income for southern Idaho sugar beet growers by nearly $6.2 million every year. [...]infiltration through certain small pores was reduced by almost 500 percent- a striking decrease. [...]the single irrigation decreased hydraulic conductivity-the rate at which water moves through soil-by an average of 48 percent in the pores in the study.

    Document Overview:
    Through partnerships with industry, international scientists, and colleagues in the BARC Animal Parasitic Diseases Laboratory, Lillehoj has demonstrated the effectiveness of using food supplements and probiotics, molecules produced by cells of the immune system, and phytonutrients to fight poultry diseases like coccidiosis-a parasitic disease that causes annual losses of more than $600 million in the United States and $3.2 billion worldwide. Addressing Animal Health As the demand for animal food products increases to meet the nutritional needs of a growing world population, finding alternative strategies to prevent and control animal diseases has become a global issue and a critical component of efforts to alleviate poverty and world hunger, Gay says.

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Scientists at the ARS Henry A. Wallace Beltsville [Maryland] Agricultural Research Center (BARC) have also explored a method that introduces a mushroom extract, lectin, to poultry by injection into developing embryos or through drinking water, improving the birds' innate immunity against major parasitic diseases in the gut. World-renown experts will look at biocontrol approaches for preventing and treating pathogens in food animals, discuss alternative host-directed strategies to enhance innate defense mechanisms in the gut, and explore new approaches that can be used as alternatives for antimicrobial growth promoters in poultry, swine, ruminant, and aquaculture production.Symposium participants representing regulatory agencies and industry will also assess challenges associated with the registration of these new technologies and provide strategies to support their development.

    Document Overview:
    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has proposed adding the sand dune lizard to the endangered species list, which could shut down oil and gas production in parts of West Texas and eastern New Mexico for 2 to 5 years. In their proposal, as recorded in the Federal Register, the USFWS acknowledges deficiencies in their understanding of the lizard's habitat and the impacts of natural events and human activities on the habitat of the species, yet they are moving forward.
