A Protocol for Collecting and Constructing Soil Core Lysimeters Louis S. Saporito1, Ray B. Bryant1, Peter J. A. Kleinman1 1Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit, USDA - Agricultural Research Service A detailed method for extraction and assembly of intact soil core lysimeters and their use for study of leachate and associated loss of nutrients from surface applied poultry litter is demonstrated.
RNAi-mediated Control of Aflatoxins in Peanut: Method to Analyze Mycotoxin Production and Transgene Expression in the Peanut/Aspergillus Pathosystem Renée S. Arias1, Phat M. Dang1, Victor S. Sobolev1 1National Peanut Research Laboratory, United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service We demonstrate a method for the analysis of aflatoxins and transgene expression in peanut seeds that contain RNA-interference signals for silencing aflatoxin-synthesis genes in the fungus Aspergillus flavus. RNAi-mediated control of mycotoxins in plants has not been reported previously.
