Cover crops are a major focus of conservation agriculture efforts because they can provide soil cover and increase nutrient availability after their mineralization in cropping systems. To evaluate the effect of residue type and placement on rate of decomposition and carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) mineralization, residues from two food crops, maize (Zea mays(More)
The Millwood (MW) cultivar of the honeylocust (Gleditsia triacanthos L.) tree has gained particular interest for silvopasture systems due to the production of edible, high-sugar seedpods that livestock may consume after pod drop. Two studies were conducted within an active sheep and honeylocust silvopasture to (1) estimate nutritional variability of(More)
To solubilize biological samples, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) frequently is added and the mixture heated at 70-100 degrees C. However, two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of a single protein after SDS treatment has not been reported. When rabbit-muscle creatine kinase was so run, we saw considerable difference in the gel staining pattern for(More)
