Award List:

SBIR Phase II: Microbial Enhancement of Soybeans for Salmonid Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clifford A. Bradley, Mr
Award Amount: $99,970.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a process for enhancing the nutritional value of soybeans to replace fishmeal as the primary ingredient in farmed trout and salmon feed. Fishmeal creates environmental and economic constraints for the aquaculture… More

Bacillus Mycoides: Systemic Induced Resistance to Control Cucurbit Pathogens

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clifford Bradley
Award Amount: $79,875.00
Abstract:
Montana Microbial Products is working to commercially develop a selected bacterium that controls plant diseases. The bacterium was isolated from sugar beets. When sprayed on sugar beets in filed trials, the bacterium induces a series of defense mechanisms in the plant, referred to as systemic… More

SBIR Phase II: Microbial Enhancement of Soybeans for Salmonid Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clifford A. Bradley, Mr
Award Amount: $499,400.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a process for enhancing the nutritional value of soybeans to replace fishmeal as the primary ingredient in farmed trout and salmon feed. Fishmeal creates environmental and economic constraints for the aquaculture… More

Bacillus Mycoides: Induced Systemic Resistance for Disease Control in Agricultural Crops

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clifford Bradley, Founding Member
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
Microbial or biochemical agents that control plant diseases by inducing systemic resistance to pathogen infection could play a significant role in crop disease management. Bacillus mycoides, isolate J, BmJ, represents the first such agent that acts by foliar (rather than root) application and that… More

Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Clifford Bradley, Founding Member
Award Amount: $49,953.00
Abstract:
Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used… More

Microbial Enhancement of Flax Seed to Replace Fish Oil in Salmonid Diets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Clifford Bradley, Founding Member
Award Amount: $199,032.00
Abstract:
In Phase I, MMP combined strain selection with the company¿s innovative technology for solid substrate culture of fungi to develop a process for treating whole flax seed; creating bioenhanced flax seed nutritionally suitable for direct use as a replacement for fish oil in aquaculture feeds. This… More

Buhl Idaho Ethanol Project: Integrating low value starch feed stocks with energy efficient starch hydrolysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Robert Kearns
Award Amount: $79,884.00
Abstract:
"This renewable energy project will complete the first phase of developing an innovative approach to a commercial ethanol plant in Buhl Idaho. The plant will use barley as a feedstock, supplemented by available sources of low value starch. Barley is the best crop for ethanol production in local… More

Buhl Ethanol Project: Co-producing Ethanol and Barley Protein Using Local Resources

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Clifford Bradley, null
Award Amount: $349,860.00
Abstract:
The phase II project combines fuel ethanol production with manufacturing of a protein concentrate to create a new industry in a rural south Idaho community. In phase 1 research, MMP demonstrated technical feasibility of a process to produce ethanol and protein concentrate as co products from barley.… More

SBIR Phase I: Combining fungal metabolites and fungal insect pathogens for cost effective control of bark beetles in forestry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clifford A. Bradley
Award Amount: $149,640.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will establish proof of concept for enhancing fungal bioinsecticide to control bark beetles, important forestry pests. Although research shows potential of fungal insect pathogens as bark beetle bioinsecticides, no commercial products… More
