PECMAN Software

    Peanut Curing Manager (PECMAN) is a decision support system that assists drying facility managers with inventory control. It schedules sampling and removal times, estimates time remaining on dryer and current moisture content. Cooperators have reported reduced drying costs and improved peanut quality.

    Cotton Irrigation Tool

      A Web Application for Estimating Irrigated and Dryland Cotton Profitability using Modeled Yield Data.

      SGA

        Stored Grain Advisor (SGA) is a decision support system for managing insect pests of farm-stored wheat. The program predicts the likelihood of insect infestation, and recommends appropriate preventative actions . It also provides advice on how to sample and identify insect pests of stored wheat. SGA Pro was designed for use in commercial elevators as part of the Areawide IPM Project for stored grain. Grain samples are taken with a vacuum probe and processed over an inclined sieve. SGA Pro analyzes the insect data, grain temperatures and moistures, and determines which bins need to be fumigated.

        Oncopeltus fasciatus hybrid genome assembly 1.0

          The milkweed bug, *Oncopeltus fasciatus*, was sequenced as part of the i5k pilot project from Baylor College of Medicine (Illumina data). To augment those resources, we present here a hybrid genome assembly with low coverage PacBio data, assembled with PBJelly: the *Oncopeltus fasciatus* Hybrid Genome Assembly v1.0.

          Data from: Biological control of boxwood blight by Pseudomonas protegens recovered from recycling irrigation systems

            A total of 1547 bacterial strains recovered from recycling irrigation systems were evaluated *in vitro* and *in planta* for their biological control efficacy against boxwood (*Buxus* spp.) blight caused by *Calonectria pseudonaviculata* (*Cps*), an emerging fungal disease in the United States. *Pseudomonas protegens* strains produced antifungal secondary metabolites that reduced *Cps* growth and infection.

            Product System Model for Beef Production 2011

              Product system boundaries (cow-calf-finisher, CCF) include all material and energy flows associated with crop production and live cattle operations. Cattle inventory flows include the cow-calf operation and end with market weight finisher cattle and culls resulting from one full year of operation. The total live weight produced in one year is 2914841.44 kg and is comprised of the following animals: Finished cattle: 3724 (581 kg/finisher), Culled cows: 1156 (636 kg/cow), Culled bulls: 58 (908 kg/cow). These data were developed using Integrated Farm System Model and are intended to represent the MARC cattle operation in Nebraska in 2011. The data were a product of a project funded by the National Cattleman's Beef Association.
