  4. Epigenetic Enhancements In Tomatoes

    SBC: EpiCrop Technologies Inc            Topic: 82

    The fundamental goal in agriculture is higher yields per acre, in conjunction with requiring thesame or lower inputs. To achieve these higher yields, more energy and water efficient plants arerequired. One of the fundamental biological processes involved in producing these phenotypes isheterosis, i.e., increased yields from hybrid progeny of parent plants with heterotic combiningability, with hybr ...

  6. Safer Sweep Auger Operation Using Robotics

    SBC: GARNER INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: 813

    The inside of a grain bin is a dangerous place. In 2014, there were no fewer than 70 reported cases of injury or death in confined agricultural spaces. Fifty-four percent were related to entrapments, but there are other incidents including asphyxiations, entanglements, falls, and fires. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates the workplace safety procedures surrounding c ...

  7. Biological feedback control of LED grow lights

    SBC: PhytoSynthetix            Topic: 813

    In controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems (greenhouses and indoor plant production facilities) light is the most energy consuming, and yet the least controlled, input factor for plant growth. Plants can dissipate up to 80% of the absorbed light energy as heat through physiological protective mechanisms (non photochemical quenching) and this light cannot be used for plant growth. Light e ...

  8. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...

  9. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...

  10. A Rapid Multispectral Image Acquisition System For Forecasting Beef Tenderness

    SBC: Goldfinch Solutions, LLC            Topic: 85

    Beef tenderness is the most important trait influencing consumer satisfaction. Currently there is no method for real-time classification of beef by tenderness. The overall objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of a multispectral image acquisition system for real-time forecasting of beef tenderness (forecast 14-day tenderness from 2-day images). We have demonstrated that hypersp ...
