Upriver in Iowa, Agricultural Research Service scientists Rob Malone, Tom Kaspar, and Dan Jaynes are using the Root Zone Water Quality Model (RZWQM) to assess how using winter rye cover crops in corn-soybean rotations could mitigate nitrate
loads in field drainage water.
There is evidence high nitrates
in infants can be deadly and may cause what's known as Blue Baby Syndrome.
Specifically, we will i) determine the effect of nitrate
on feeding behaviour, body condition, reproduction and immunity in guppies; ii) analyse any interaction effects between nitrates
and pathogens; iii) determine the role of acquired immunity in adult fish; and iv) test for maternally inherited immunity transfer in F1 offspring.
In addition to calculating average nitrate
levels, we used nitrate
MCL violation data from PICME to verify whether CWSs with high nitrates
did in fact receive violations, and to run a sensitivity analysis on PEP data.
The new Swedish study has suggested that after eating leafy green vegetables, a source of inorganic nitrate
, healthy people showcase increased efficiency of the mitochondria that power our cells.
Triplicate determinations of nitrates
and nitrites were made.
The European Commission has released a pessimistic report on the implementation of the Nitrates
Directive, despite an impressive performance by most EU countries.
LANCASTER -- A $4 million payment is being proposed to settle conflicts between state water regulators and sanitation district officials in Lancaster and Palmdale over whether enough progress is being made with orders to keep sewage off Air Force property and to clean up nitrates
By producing nitrates
and nitrites directly, the vetch contributes usable nitrogen in a new way.
We found that withdrawal of nitrates
was not associated with a significantly increased likelihood of relapsing anginal symptoms nor with hemodynamic deterioration compared to matched patients who continued to receive nitrates
5, potassium 1, sodium 22, bicarbonate 116, chloride 14, sulphates 4, nitrates
Where there is evidence that high levels of nitrates
are occurring, or could be if no action is taken, farmers within the nitrate
vulnerable zones will be required to take action.
