Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

    The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.

    Video data of flowers, fruitlets, and fruit in apple trees during the 2017 growing season at USDA-ARS-AFRS

      This record contains videos of apple trees acquired from a ground vehicle throughout the growing season. Research in precision management methods in orchard crops revolve around locating objects of interest, namely flowers, fruitlets, and fruit, autonomously. This dataset is provided so that researchers without access to research plots or mature trees can experiment with the data acquired during the course of an ongoing project on apple flower estimation in images. The trees shown in these videos have a mixture of colors and growth habits. In particular, the four varieties represent one of each of the Lespinasse ideotypes.

      2015 USDA Farm To School Census Data Explorer Tool

        The Farm to School Census measures USDA's progress toward improving access to local foods in schools. The web-based interface allows users to run customized searches using data from the 2015 Farm to School Census.

        Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM)

          The Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM) is a process-based simulation of dairy, beef, and crop farming systems. This whole farm model provides a tool for evaluating the long term performance, economics, and environmental impacts of production systems over many years of weather.

          A regionally-adapted implementation of conservation agriculture delivers rapid improvements to soil properties associated with crop yield stability

            Maize and soybean yield data set for Precision Zonal Management (PZM) project from 2012-2015. Project compared chisel plow tillage against ridge tillage (PZM) systems, with and without winter cereal rye cover crops. Experimental sites in four US states: IL, MI, MN and PA. Data set provides plot-level yield data (kg/ha) for each site-year and for both crops. File also contains data set of maize and soybean yield stability, with soil properties measured in 2015 (end of experimental period) and delta values (values in 2015 minus values prior to experiment establishment in 2011).

            USDA Table of Cooking Yields for Meat and Poultry

              USDA Table of Cooking Yields for Meat and Poultry, Release 2, is an update of previously released USDA data. Data in the updated table, accessible below, are measures of changes in meat and poultry weights resulting from moisture and fat losses during cooking. The table includes percentages for cooking yield, moisture change, and fat change for specific cuts of meat and poultry prepared in USDA research studies according to specific cooking protocols.

              USDA Nutrient Data Set for Retail Meat Cuts: Beef, Lamb, Pork and Veal

                The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nutrient Data Laboratory (NDL), in collaboration with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, National Pork Board, American Lamb Board, and meat scientists at selected universities, has conducted several research studies designed to update and expand nutrient data on retail meat cuts in the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR). These studies have provided current and accurate estimates of data to update SR, and the study results have been incorporated into data sets that can be used for nutrient labeling. NDL has developed these data sets, presented in an easy-to-use table format.  

                NASS Data Visualization

                  NASS Data Visualization provides a dynamic web query interface supporting searches by Commodity (e.g. Cotton, Corn, Farms & Land, Grapefruit, Hogs, Oranges, Soybeans, Wheat), Statistic type (automatically refreshed based upon choice of Commodity - e.g. Inventory, Head, Acres Planted, Acres Harvested, Production, Yield) to generate chart, table, and map visualizations by year (2001-2016), as well as a link to download the resulting data in CSV format compatible for updating databases and spreadsheets.
