Feed incidents, whether accidental or intentional, have the potential to cause adverse health effects for large segments of the animal population. Mitigating the consequences of such emergencies will require the capability to respond to and recover from chemical, biological or physical contaminants and other hazards that may affect the safety of food and agricultural products. This document describes the response actions of CDA and partnering agencies to such feed incidents., Cover title., "November 2010.", Mode of access: World Wide Web.
Herbicides are an effective tool in an integrated weed management plan when dealing with noxious weed infestations.

Overall the findings of the project indicate the technologies that exist on a larger scale pose several challenges on a smaller scale. Technical challenges include finding equipment that has a small capacity while still maintaining the efficiencies of a large scale plant. In addition, financial challenges arose from the initial cost analysis. The findings indicate the cost of torrefied biomass is well above the going market price for energy on a BTU/lb basis. In other words, the final product could not compete in todays energy market. The team is looking into more cost effective ways to produce the product as well as calculating a monetary value for the "renewable" aspect of the fuel as opposed to market alternatives such as coal., Includes bibliographic references., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed August 2018)
