  1. MEASURING RESISTANCE OF INSECTS TO BT TOXINS WITH HYDRATEABLE MEAL PADS

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available In the summer of 1998 over 2.8 million acres of farmland in the Southern U.S. was planted in genetically engineered cotton expressing a gene derived from the bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This Bt gene codes for production of a protein that is toxic to some of the most important lepidopteran pests of U.S. cotton. The future expansion of this new technology on more cotton acr ...

  2. Novel Electrochemical Sensors for Ag Diagnostics and GMOs

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The long-term goal of this program is to develop a diagnostic platform based on affordable, disposable electrochemical sensors that will be accurate, sensitive, easy to use, quantitative and suitable for high volume testing. The assay system will be portable with a handheld reader and will be applied initially to the detection of GMOs in plants and plant products. The specific phase II objectives ...

  3. Production of Fumaric Acid From Corn by Fermentation

    SBC: General Resource Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are three specific objectives. Once attained, the technology will be ready for pilot plant tests, with commercializatin to follow. 1. The mold that produces fumaric acid from glucose has a tendency to form large pellets. When that happens, oxygen shortage will develop in the pellet center that will make the cells to produce ethanol instead of fumaric acid. An objective is to further test tec ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTROSTATIC PESTICIDE APPLICATORS

    SBC: Terronics Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DAY HERBICIDE SPRAYING OF FIELD ROW CROPS IS VERY INEFFICIENT; OVER 75% OF THE HERBICIDE IS WASTED AS OVER- SPRAY, WHICH IS COSTLY AND CONTAMINATES THE ENVIRONMENT. THEFEASIBILITY OF EFFICIENTLY APPLYING TRANSLOCATABLE HERBICIDEWITH ELECTROSTATIC SPRAY DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES WILL BE EX- AMINED. STUDIES WILL EVALUATE DIFFERENT PARTICLE CHARGING MEANS, INCLUDING INDUCTION CHARGING, CORONA CHA ...
