2014 Swine CAFO Study SE for Agricultural Antibiotic Resistance in Mississippi State, Mississippi

    The purpose of this study was to measure the microbial constituents of swine-sow, -nursery, and -finisher farm manure lagoon wastewater and determine the changes induced by farm management. A total of 37 farms were visited in the Mid-South USA and analyzed for the genes 16S rRNA, spaQ (Salmonella spp.), Camp-16S (Campylobacter spp.), tetA, tetB, ermF, ermA, mecA, and intI using quantitative PCR. Additionally, 16S rRNA sequence libraries were created.

    Pesticide Data Program (PDP)

      The Pesticide Data Program (PDP) is a national pesticide residue database program. Through cooperation with State agriculture departments and other Federal agencies, PDP manages the collection, analysis, data entry, and reporting of pesticide residues on agricultural commodities in the U.S. food supply, with an emphasis on those commodities highly consumed by infants and children. This dataset provides information on where each tested sample was collected, where the product originated from, what type of product it was, and what pesticide residue was found on the product, for calendar years 1992 through 2020.

      Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) POX-C dataset

        Forty two samples were selected from the Kellogg Soil Survey Laboratory (KSSL) archive. The soils (41) were taken from the A horizon except for one sample that came from an O horizon. The samples represented 9 of the 12 US soil Orders, including Mollisols (23), Alfisols (5), Ultisols (5), Andisols (2), Entisols (2), Inceptisols (2), Aridisols (1), Histosols (1) and Vertisols (1). The soils varied widely in SOC (3.0 – 288.4 g kg-1; mean 31 g kg-1), pH (4.3 – 8.5; mean 6.2) and clay content (3.6 – 47.0%; mean 21.5%) The geographic origin of the selected samples and the distribution of SOC concentrations, clay contents and pH values are in the sample selected materials.
