  • Francis, L.L; Lee, J.; Chambers, Delores H.; Jeon, I.J.; Simmons, S.R.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Various chemical compounds contribute to the naturally pleasant flavor of milk. Over time, however, and with unwanted chemical reactions, loss of flavor is inevitable. This study was conducted to identify and quantify ...
  • Richardson, D.; Tsien, W.S. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1963)
    Crude protein, or protein as the term is commonly used, represents all nitrogen-containing compounds in the feed. True protein is that portion of the protein which has been formed by the combining of amino acids. The value ...
  • Li, Tao; Bai, Guihua; Wu, Shuangye; Gu, Shiliang (2012)
    The Chinese wheat landrace Huangfangzhu (HFZ) has a high level of resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB). To identify chromosomal regions that are responsible for FHB resistance in HFZ, F8 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) ...
  • Cochran, R.C.; Towne, G.; Olson, K. C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    A 16-band multispectral radiometer (MSR) was used to measure the amount of forage biomass present on several dates in native tallgrass prairie pastures during the 1992 to 1994 growing seasons. Reflectance data ...
  • Murugan, Muthusamy; Shetty, Paddu Krishnappa; Anandhi, Aavudai; Ravi, Raju; Alappan, Subbiah; Vasudevan, Muhund; Gopalan, Sreeja (2009)
    The southern Western Ghats tropical montane cloud forest sites (Gavi, Periyar, High wavys and Venniyar), which are characterized by frequent or seasonal cloud cover at the vegetation level, are considered one of the most ...
  • Morrill, J.L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    On many dairy farms, improvement is needed in raising replacement heifers, especially in providing proper nutrition and management to allow for freshening at 23 to 24 mo of age at a desirable size. With larger herds, there ...
  • Smith, E.F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    A 1135 acre tract of native bluestem pasture 5 miles northeast of Manhattan was acquired by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 1946 for range research. Professor A.G. Picket was in charge of the beef cattle ...
  • Mills, K.W.; Phillips, R.M.; Kelly, B.L.; Baughman, G.L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1981)
    The efficiency of the standard agglutination test, Y-1 mouse adrenal cell test, and infant-mouse gastric test was compared with a recently developed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting the K88 pilus ...
  • Garcia, G.; Malvetti, R.; Harbers, L.H. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1989)
    Calibration equations for near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) have been either purchased from the manufacturer or developed in the laboratory. Comparative analysis with standard laboratory procedures indicate ...
  • Zhu, Lieceng; Liu, Xuming; Wang, Haiyan; Khajuria, Chitvan; Reese, John C.; Whitworth, R. Jeffery; Welti, Ruth; Chen, Ming-Shun (2012)
    Hessian fly (HF) is a biotrophic insect that interacts with wheat on a gene-for-gene basis. We profiled changes in membrane lipids in two isogenic wheat lines: a susceptible line and its backcrossed offspring containing ...
  • Budiongo, K.J.; Harbers, L.H.; Seabourn, B.W.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    This research was designed to develop a set of prediction equations to measure nutrient composition of Kansas sorghum silages using both a portable and a research type near-infrared spectrometer (NIRS). A robust set ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Haverkamp, D.; Dalke, B.S.; Sonon, R.N.; Budiongo, K.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced DM losses at the 5 and 10 in. depths in the farm silos and at the 0 to ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Holthaus, D.L.; Young, Matthew A.; Pfaff, L.; Brent, B.E.; Boyer, John E.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Alfalfa silages were made in pilot- and farm-scale silos, and five sealing treatments were compared. After 90 days, sealing dramatically reduced dry matter (DM) losses at the 5 and 10 inch depths in the farm silos and ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Boyer, John E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Corn and forage sorghum silages were stored in pilot-scale silos for 180 days, and dry matter (DM) and organic matter (OM) recoveries and estimated OM recovery were measured at three depths within the top 3 ft. of ...
  • Dickerson, J.T.; Niwa, Y.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brent, B.E.; Lin, C.; Bradford, J.E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Effects of covering, time, and depth from the surface on the rate and extent of top spoilage losses in alfalfa silages stored in horizontal silos were studied under pilot- and farm-scale conditions. Covering silages ...
  • Trater, C.M.; Hunt, Melvin C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Steaks from 12 loins were used to determine the best time and temperature combinations for blooming (development of a bright-red color) of the longissimus muscle at 2, 14, and 26 days postmortem. The lowest temperature ...
  • Richardson, D.; Smith, E.F.; Cox, R.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1956)
