  1. Development of a Novel Microbial Biopesticide for the Control of Insect Pests

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agriculture needs new bio-rational pest control agents to replace outdated synthetic chemicals. Safer, smarter, target-specific control measures are required for use in sustainable integrated pest management (IPM) systems. New technologies are essential to IPM in high value fruit, nut, and vegetable crops where the most widely used insecticides are organophosphates (OPs) and carbamates. In 1998, 3 ...

  2. EXPRESSION OF A BACTERIAL CHITINASE GENE IN PLANTS

    SBC: Dna Plant Technologi            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL CHARACTERIZE THE SERRATIA MARCESENS CHIB GENE BOTH PHYSICALLY AND IN BIOCONTROL EXPERIMENTS. WE WILL GENETICALLY ENGINEER TOBACCO PLANTS TO EXPRESS HIGH LEVELS OF THE CHIB ENCODED CHITINASE IN LEAF TISSUE, THEN WE WILL EXAMINE WHETHER THESE TRANSFORMED PLANTS ARE RESISTANT TO INFECTION BY ALTERNARIA ALTERNARIA, THE CAUSATIVE AGENT IN TOBACCO LEAF BROWN SPOT DISEASE.

  3. Commercial Production of Crown Gall Resistant Fruit and Nut Trees

    SBC: Dry Creek Laboratories            Topic: N/A

    1. The effectiveness of hairpin RNA (inverted repeat) constructs that target iaaM will be compared to the opposing-promoter constructs which conferred crown gall resistance to 12% of the transgenic apple trees produced during phase I studies. Although not critical, a higher success rate will aid in the introduction of the gall-resistance trait into a commercially useful apple rootstock. 2. To test ...

  4. CLIPBOARD COMPUTER ACCIDENT DATA COLLECTION AND TRANSMISSION

    SBC: DYNAMIC ANALYSIS & TESTING ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A COMBINED HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SYSTEM BASED ON DATA'S CLIPBOARD COMPUTR. THE CLIP BOARD IS AN IBM PC COMPATIBLE PORTABLE COMPUTER WITH BASIC DIMENSIONS OF 7"X10"X1.5" AND A WEIGHT OF 4 POUNDS. IT CON-TAINS A HIGH RESOLUTION (640 X 200) GCA MONITOR WITH A TOUCHSCREEN FOR MENU RESPONSE ENTRY BY FINGERTIP. THE COMPUTER RUNS A 8 MHZ HAS 3 MB OF A MAIN MEMORY (COMBIN ...

  5. Treatment of Methyl Bromide Off-Gases (Phase II)

    SBC: Energy Resource Institute            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of Phase II is to further develop and optimize biotrickling filtration of methyl bromide and to demonstrate the technology in the field. At the end of Phase II, the Energy Resource Institute should be in the unique position of being able to commercialize biotrickling filter systems for the safe and reliable treatment of methyl bromide air streams from fumigations. Supporting ...

  6. Paper Conservation by New Mass Deacidification Techniques-Phase II

    SBC: IFT Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of our Phase II research program is to produce a prototype that utilizes this method to deacidify paper, and prevent ongoing, in-situ acid degradation that is rendering it unstable. The workflow can be divided into 1) Mission and 2)Technical Objectives. Mission Objectives:The Library of Congress (LOC) provided the mission objectives for a successful MD treatment in 1990 by is ...

  7. A New, Non-Toxic Method to Control the Key Pest in Pecans

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goals of this PHASE II program are to further expand our Phase I findings to fully determine the major effects of pheromone source and application characteristics (i.e. the density of sources per area, the effect of formulation and release rate, and the amount of pheromone that needs to be released to obtain the desired effect) and the vertical positioning of the controlled release devices in ...

  8. EVALUATION OF MOISTURE CONTENT AND DENSITY OF WOOD PRODUCTS USING MICROWAVES

    SBC: Kdc/isi Joint Venture            Topic: N/A

    REAL-TIME MEASUREMENT OF MOISTURE IN WOOD PRODUCTS IS OF MAJOR IMPORTANCE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF VALUE-ADDEDED WOOD PRODUCTS SUCH AS PLYWOOD, PARTICLE/FIBER/FLAKEBOARD,ETC. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT FOR DETERMINING THE VALUE OF RAW MATER IALS SUCH AS WOOD CHIPS AND FLAKES WHICH ARE USUALLY PUR- CHASED BY WEIGHT AND FOR ESTABLISHING PRE-AND POST-DRYING NEEDS. THIS RESEARCH WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILIT ...

  9. PONDWAYS: A NEW INTENSIVE-EXTENSIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR RECYCLING OF AQUACULTURE EFFLUENTS

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Aquaculture is increasing at an annual rate of 20% and has become a $1 billion industry in the U.S. that provides more than 25% of our seafood supplies. Due to limited water supplies, future aquaculture development will probably involve closed systems in which the culture water is treated and recycled. Current recycling technologies are based on industrial waste treatment methods, bu ...
