French term or phrase:Exporter les pailles
Text: Leur dégradation dans les semaines qui suivent leur enfouissement se traduit par une organisation nette de l’azote, donc par une diminution de l’azote minéral présent dans le sol. L’azote minéral dans le sol au cours de l’été serait donc plus élevé si l’on exportait les pailles.
Explanation: Anderson Rice Fund Grant funds will be discretionarily applied as appropriate and as best suited to keep rice straw approval efforts moving forward. Activities to which Rice Grant funds would be applied are expected to possibly include lab work and experimental work, treatment trials, shipping and material handling, project management, travel, and information updates and forums for industry and USDA participants. To date they have included travel, management time, industry updates, and administrative costs associated with bringing industry, USDA, and Japan MAFF needs and goals to the points of accomplishment described in this report. This rice straw export work is complemented by the rice straw harvesting (Infrastructure) experience obtained by Anderson during the past two years. http://www.arb.ca.gov/smp/rice/ricefund/ahgfer99.htm
Anderson Hay & Grain proposes to develop the infrastructure necessary for handling large quantities of rice straw by using their extensive experience in establishing such an infrastructure for grass straw in Oregon. Anderson also proposes to use rice straw to make erosion control blankets; to develop business and fumigation protocols to export rice straw for use as livestock feed in Asia; to develop the preprocessing methodologies to prepare rice straw for paper and board applications; and to identify potentially large-scale users of rice straw based on the premise that preprocessed straw would be more efficient to use for commercial-scale applications. http://www.arb.ca.gov/smp/rice/ricefund/grant97.htm
