Impact of biofuel on efficiency performance and emission quality from diesel-powered engines

In this proposed study, a consortium comprised of the USDA-ARS, Fresno State,Red Rock Ranch, and Panoche Drainage District will seek to develop new resources from an otherwise known contaminant: selenium (Se). Seed harvested from canola plants will be processed for bio-oil and blended with diesel fuel. Investigators will then evaluate performance of biofuels.

Developing an alternative source of selenium-enriched animal forage for providing Se and other nutrients to dairy cows

The proposed study uses canola and sunflower in crop rotation as recipients for disposing of Se-laden drainage water, and evaluates the impacts and the potential of producing Se-enriched meal for supplying dairy cows their essential requirement of Se and other nutrients.

Development of value-added products from cactus (Opuntia) grown in the westside of CA

1. Determine tolerance and yield differences, e.g. fruit cladodes between different varieties of spine and spineless Opuntia grown under drainage water-irrigation and rain-fed only conditions at Red Rock Ranch (RRR), and in saline drainage sediment at USDA-ARS Research Facility. 2. Determine rates of biological volatilization of Se and Se and the accumulation in of Se and other nutrients in cladodes and fruit from both spine and spineless Opuntia grown at both RRR and at ARS Research Facilities. 3. Develop extrusion and other processes for utilization of fruit pulp and peels as ingredients for producing unique value-added food products from Opuntia.
