  1. The Use of Ion-Accumulating Halophytes for the Phytoremediation of Saline and Selenium Impacted Soil and Water in Cold-Arid Climates

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: 84

    The Bureau of Land Management and other agencies have called the rapid expansion of energy exploration on the Rocky Mountain Front, the single largest environmental challenge facing the western U.S. The Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming and Montana is an area of major development for coal bed methane gas (CBM) exploration. CBM resides in underground coal seams, trapped by large aquifers of water ...

  2. Feasibility Test of Seedster Technology to Improve Quantity and Quality of Carrot and Yarrow Seed

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 813

    The production of hybrid carrot seed is difficult because of the indeterminacy of ripening and the tendency to shatter mature seeds. The umbel (flat-top cluster) inflorescences (seedheads) of carrots mature sequentially over a 3-4 week period. The primary (king) umbel matures first, followed by the secondary and tertiary umbels. The standard harvest method is to swath when the primary and many of ...

  3. Seedster Technology for More Seed Recovery, Less Impurities and Faster Ground Speed Harvesting Camelina for Biodiesel Feedstock

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 88

    Camelina seed production is expanding throughout the semi-arid portion of the wheat belt and is proposed for intercropping between rows in vineyards and nut orchards. These markets and the market need for small maneuverable harvesters for research plots and breeder blocks have created a need for an inexpensive, but efficient, camelina harvester. The Seedster has the potential for meeting the deman ...

  4. New Controlled Release Fertilizer Systems Derived from Biomass

    SBC: RIVERTOP RENEWABLES, INC.            Topic: 813

    Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of conventionally applied fertilizer goes unutilized by plants and becomes a contaminant of surface and ground (drinking) water. Fertilizer run-off in surface water leads to oxygen depletion of streams, lakes, and other bodies of water. Without oxygen, the water becomes uninhabitable for fish and other aquatic organisms. In addition to the negative environm ...

  5. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: N/A

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...

  6. MARICULTURE TECHNOLOGY FOR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, PROMOTING SELF-SUFFICIENCY FOR RURAL ALASKA NATIVES

    SBC: Akhiok Tribal Enterprises            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEM: ONE OF THE MAJOR BARRIERS TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF PINK SCALLOP AQUACULTURE IS THE SHIPMENT OF THE LIVE ANIMALSTO MARKETS ON THE WEST COAST. PINK SCALLOPS ARE VERY FRAGILE. TRANSPORTING THEM TO KODIAK AND REMOTE SITE FOR SHIPMENT TO SEATTLE AND STILL MAINTAIN ENOUGH SHELF LIFE FOR WHOLESALERS AND RETAILERS TO SELL THE PRODUCT IS DIFFICULT. QUESTION: CAN THE SHELF LIFE BE EXTENDED WITH PROCED ...

  7. Marketing Plan to Export, Plant, Monitor and Evaluate Seed Potatoes in China

    SBC: Alaska Green Gold Company            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: China is the largest producer and user of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) in the world, growing approximately 50 million tons per year. They need almost 3 million tons of seed potatoes per year and have banned the importation of new seed potatoes for over 17 years. China has a significant potato disease problem, and by 2003 will authorize the importation of 'certified' seed pot ...

  8. Growing, Evaluating and Marketing Seed Potatoes in China

    SBC: Alaska Green Gold Company            Topic: N/A

    A China has not permitted the importation of USA seed potatoes in over 19 years and signed a new Potato Protocol in 2003. B We must obtain a Chinese Provincial Variety Evaluation to comply with the current China Seed Law. C We have 10 USA potato varieties under a preliminary evaluation by Chinese Scientists in China's Region I in NE China. China and USA signed a new POTATO PROTOCOL in 2003 to perm ...

  9. Intermodal Shipping Containers for Live Aquatic Product

    SBC: Allied Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is to evaluate the feasibility of a volume transport and holding container for live fish and aquatic product. The proposed container would aerate, cool and circulate water using liquid air and no external power supply. The technology would allow a cost effective means to maintain a hibernation-like torpor in fish to overcome physiological constraints of volume live transport ...

  10. Marketing Assessment of Indian Ricegrass as a Gluten-Free Flour and in Baked Finished Goods

    SBC: Amazing Grains Grower Cooperative            Topic: N/A

    Through the proposed USDA-SBIR Phase I Marketing and Trade project, market expansion and diversification opportunities will be explored for the Amazing Grains Grower Cooperative and their trademarked MontinaTM products. MontinaTM products are formulated from the gluten-free grain Indian ricegrass. The expanding demand for gluten-free/wheat-free products, largely by the growing population of indivi ...
