  1. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Annually wildfires, construction, mining, and noxious weed infestations damage millions of acres of vegetation. Public policy encourages land managers to restore damaged land by reseeding native plant species. The core US market exceeds 15,000 seed producers using inefficient methods to harvest difficult to harvest seed of native plants. Demand for large amounts of seed is d ...

  2. Ground-Based, Line-Source Ignition Material for Prescribed Fires

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: A "Forest Health Crisis" exists in many areas of the United States, characterized by the build-up of forest vegetation as a result of over a century of effective fire suppression. This unnatural accumulation of fuels poses a significant risk to long-term forest health and to the safety of nearby communities in the event of a fire. Prescribed burning, the lighting and control ...

  3. Allelic Ladders for Standardization of STR Genotyping of White-Tailed Deer

    SBC: DNA SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci consist of short, repetitive sequence elements ranging from 2 to 5 base pairs (bp) in length distributed throughout mammalian genomes (microsatellites). STR genotypes can be determined from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products of less 500 bp using relatively degraded DNA templates. STR fragments of discrete lengths are detected by electroph ...

  4. Maintaining and Using the Forest Biometrics Research Database

    SBC: Forest Biometrics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Forestry has historically relied on publically funded Experiment Stations and University programs to supply new technology. Funding has moved away from biometrics research and technical support. This situation changes the relationship among USDA Experiment Stations, University cooperatives, outside professional consultants and industrial forestry organizations. This project ...

  6. Computerized Rangeland Information System

    SBC: Land EKG. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Conditions on U.S. rangelands have long been a source of concern to natural resource experts and land stewards. Within the past two decades environmental and social concerns have resulted in statutes and regulations prompting for improved land, water, and ecological monitoring and management practices. These mandates imply a need for significant amounts of information for ma ...

  8. Innovative Enzymatic Reactor for Production of Alternative Fuels

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Current technology of biodiesel production is facing two major hurdles. It can't process the grease containing high free fatty acid (FFA) and the production cost is still not competitive compared to the petroleum diesel. The proposed technology addresses these problems and intends to produce biodiesel at $0.20 per gallon for production costs and less that $1.00 total cost. W ...

  9. Sonically-Intensified Mixing for Enhanced Plant Cell Culture Productivity

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The market for plant-derived drugs and intermediates is approximately $10 billion in the United States. In addition to market considerations, productive plant cell culture processes offer the potential to accelerate clinical development of plant-derived pharmaceuticals, protect the originating plant species from over-exploitation, and reduce supply fluctuations due to unpred ...
