Research Project: EVALUATION OF HORMONES AND AG CHEMICALS IN ANIMAL WASTE

Location: Animal Metabolism-Agricultural Chemicals Research

Project Number: 5442-32000-012-01
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 15, 2005
End Date: Sep 30, 2009

Objective:
Determine the activity and/or concentration of hormones and ag chemicals in animal waste under various manure handling conditions in order to develop practices that minimize potential environmental impact.

Approach:
This will be a joint effort between VPI and SU, who will be responsible for setting up and conducting the experimental trails, and ARS who will develop methodology and perform analyses of samples. Both partners will collaborate in the design of the experiments and interpretation of the results.
