2011 Annual Report
As part of the AFRI grant project, ARS scientists have initiated collaborative research with Iowa State University and a Kansas firm to evaluate peroxidase enzyme products for the reduction of odor emissions from swine manure. The project includes the evaluation of soybean-byproduct additives made from ground soybean hulls. Several laboratory experiments have been conducted to optimize the amount of horseradish peroxidase or soybean peroxidase required for odor control.
The ADODR monitors the Specific Cooperative Agreement with routine emails and conference calls with the Iowa State University principal investigator, and with monthly face-to-face meetings with the Iowa State University visiting scientist.
