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.

    Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Pennisetum purpureum (napiergrass), Alcohol-to-Jet, Southeast, June 2018

      Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The data from this evaluation, compiled in June 2018, assesses the maturity of *Pennisetum purpureum* (napiergrass) as a feedstock for the Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Southeast region.

      Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Panicum virgatum (switchgrass), Alcohol-to-Jet, Southeast, June 2018

        Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The data from this evaluation, compiled in June 2018, assesses the maturity of *Panicum virgatum* (switchgrass) as a feedstock for the Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Southeast region.

        NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Longleaf Pine Range

          Longleaf pine forests once encompassed more than 90 million acres of the North American landscape and represented some of the world’s most unique biologically diverse ecosystems. In 2010, approximately three percent, or 3.4 million acres, of longleaf pine forest remained. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.

          NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program - Chesapeake Bay Watershed

            The largest estuary in North America, the Chesapeake Bay Watershed covers 64,000 square miles and includes more than 150 rivers and streams that drain into the Bay. More than 300 species of fish, shellfish and crab species and a wide array of other wildlife call the Bay home. With almost 30 percent of area in agricultural production, the region’s over 83,000 farms generate more than $10 billion annually. This dataset includes a printer-friendly CCA map and shapefiles for GIS.
