  • Analysis and dissipation of the antiparasitic agent ivermectin in cattle dung under different field conditions

    Cattle treated with the veterinary parasiticide ivermectin (IVM) fecally excrete residues. Here we report the exposition and dissipation characteristics of these residues in dung of IVM‐treated cattle, and in soil beneath this dung, on pastures including Canada, France, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. Residues were quantified for dung collected from cattle after 3, 7, 14, and 28 d post‐ ...

  • Removal of Pb2+ and Fe3+ from water using N-TiO2 blended copolymer grafted asymmetric membranes

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the photo-catalytic properties of nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide nano-particles supported on polymer membranes in the photo-reduction of Fe3+ and Pb2+ from synthetic wastewater. The morphology of the prepared N-TiO2 nanoparticles was evaluated using transmission electron microscopy. Successful grafting of methacrylic acid side chains onto ...

  • New study finds recycled phosphorus could fertilize 100 percent of U.S. corn

    The world has a problem. A phosphorus problem. Needed to fertilize crops, the bulk of phosphorus comes from nonrenewable phosphate rock. While China mines the most — producing almost half the world’s phosphorus — Morocco alone controls three-fourths of global phosphate rock reserves. Year by year those global reserves ...

  • Evaluation of water demand and supply in the south of Iraq

    This paper presents results from the first study that focuses on water resources availability and demand for different purposes in the four oil-rich provinces of southern Iraq. The region accounts for 23% of the surface area and 18% of the country's population, but holds 88% of its oil. A water shortage of 430 Mm3/year for 2010 is estimated for this region where irrigation accounts for 81% of ...

  • Removal of humic acid from composted hog waste by the white-rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium

    The potential hazards of humic acid (HA) associated with hog waste effluent, coupled with increasing awareness of environmental problems, have prompted many countries to control disposal of effluents into water bodies and to maximize removal of HA. Here we employed the white-rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, to degrade the HA in composted hog waste effluent, evaluated by the response ...

  • Main Applications of Truck Mounted ULV Fogger

    A fogger is a machine which distributes chemicals such as insecticide or disinfectant into an area by means of a fine spray for killing insects and other arthropods. They are often used by consumers as a low-cost alternative to professional pest control services. The number of fogger needed for pest control depends on the size of the space needed to treat. There are different types of ...

  • Environmental fate of emamectin benzoate after tree micro injection of horse chestnut trees

    Emamectin benzoate, an insecticide derived from the avermectin family of natural products, has a unique translocation behavior in trees when applied by tree micro injection (TMI), which can result in protection from insect pests (foliar and borers) for several years. Active ingredient imported into leaves was measured at the end of season in the fallen leaves of treated horse chestnut ...
