How is Aspergillus Used in Fermentation?

Aspergillus oryzae (A. oryzae) is a filamentous fungus that has been important for over 2,000 years for the production of soy sauce, miso, shoyu, fermented black beans, bean curd seasoning, and vinegar, although modern production of soy sauce uses a closely related microorganism, Aspergillus sojae (A. sojae). A. oryzae also is used to release sugars from rice, sweet potatoes, and barley for the production of sake and shōchū. The usefulness of Aspergillus is not limited to the […]

Which are Limiting Nutrients for Plant Growth?

Plants need several types of nutrients to grow. These required elements and minerals are known as limiting nutrients. When one of these nutrients is lacking, it can limit the growth or development of the plant. By understanding the basics of nutrition for plants, growers can more easily identify which nutrients are in abundance or lacking and take steps to correct the problem. Keeping the correct composition of limiting nutrients will […]

Why Are Additives Put in Livestock Feed?

A tremendous variety of additives appear in commercial livestock feed. Feed makers add a variety of antibiotics, such as bacitracin, chlortetracycline, erythromycin, lincomycin, neomycin sulfate, oleandomycin, oxytetracycline, procaine penicillin, streptomycin, tylosin, virginiamycin, and the bambermycins to animal feed to increase growth. These antibiotics usually do not prevent any particular animal disease, but they do increase the rate at which animals convert feed into market weight (possibly by preventing subclinical infections).  […]
