  3. Commercialization of Versazyme, A Keratinase Product, for Use in Poultry Food

    SBC: BIORESOURCE INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The small intestine of the newly hatched chick and is immature and undergoes significant morphological, biochemical and physiological changes during the first 10 days post hatch. After this initial period, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the young monogastric animals becomes more capable of digesting and utilizing more nutrients. Chicks and poults during the first few da ...

  5. Development of Effective, Economical Killing Stations for New World Fruit Fly Management and Eradication

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The potential impact of widespread establishment in the US of Mexican Fruit fly is estimated at $927.75 million dollars. Rhagoletis species are key pests of important deciduous fruit and nut crops (apple, cherry, blueberry and walnut). This project will develop an effective killing station that will provide a sustainable alternative to insecticide cover sprays aimed at tephr ...

  6. Feasibility of an Innate Immunity-Based Test to Monitor the Health of Channel Catfish

    SBC: Norcarex Bio Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Disease is the major cause of economic losses in channel catfish aquaculture. Many if not most disease epidemics are precipitated by stress. Having a means to rapidly and accurately detect the level of stress in catfish populations would be a highly valuable tool since it would warn the farmer when management changes need to be implemented before a catastrophic disease loss ...

  7. Field Enhanced Capacitive Transducers for Greenhouse Environmental Control

    SBC: Horizon Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The horticulture industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Humidity is the most important and difficult to control environmental parameter in greenhouses. It affects the quality, yield and health of plants. Environmental control systems with distributed humidity and condensation sensors are desired to manage dynamic environments to enhance crop yield, prevent disease, and ...

  8. Mycoparasite Metabolites for Managing Rust Diseases

    SBC: PhytoMyco Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: If teliospores could be prematurely induced by the mycoparasite metabolite treatment, the rust disease cycle would be curtailed, thus blocking the spread of disease and lessening economic losses. The chemistry of the teliospore-inducing compound (TIC) and analogs would facilitate the control of cereal rusts. Knowledge of chemical structure of the TIC would also permit synthe ...

  9. Novel Affordable Composites from Renewable Resources

    SBC: Cara Plastics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Composites today are based on petroleum-based polymers and energy intensive fiber glass. Our dependency on petroleum results in carbon dioxide emissions, which can be harmful to the environment. The purpose of this project is to prepare and test specific resins from natural oils for their compatibility with natural fibers, and the properties necessary for structural applicat ...

  10. Phase Change Materials from Fats and Oils

    SBC: ChemChar Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: A The price of fats and oils are depressed due to an over-supply created by recent increases in palm oil production. B New approaches are needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to reduce the cost of air conditioning for buildings. A This project will demonstrate the conversion of fats and oils into phase change materials typically sold at prices over $0.50 per pound. ...
