Abstract : THIS IS A PROGRESS REPORT ON AEROJETS' STUDIES OF EXPERIMENTS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY (E.G., PLANT GROWTH AND DIMP AND DCPD LYSIMETER TESTS). THE FULL SCALE LYSIMETER TESTS ARE CONTINUING. THE PRELIMINARY SOIL CULTURE EXPERIMENTS ARE CONTINUING IN THE SMALL POTS. THE PURCHASE ORDERS FOR A NEW GREENHOUSE HAVE BEEN WRITTEN AND A BUILDER SELECTED. THIS REPORT INCLUDES SEVERAL TABLES OF 'DIMP' CONTENT OF LYSIMETERS.' THE PLANTS GROWN IN THE HYDROPONIC BATHS ARE STILL BEING MONITORED CHEMICALLY AS TO THEIR UPTAKE OF DIMP. MOST OF THE PLANTS HAVE REACHED THE HARVEST STAGE AND ARE BEING COLLECTED FOR FINAL ANALYSIS. SEEDS ARE BEING SEPARATED WHERE POSSIBLE. JMD
