  1. A Reverse Venturi Atomization Chamber


    Spray drift is one of the most significant issues presently facing agricultural applicators. Agricultural applicators are committed to the management of chemical drift and take responsibility on a daily basis for making good decisions in the field. Material that drifts off-site is material that is not applied to the target crop or pest and represents both wasted time and wasted material. This equa ...

  2. Development of Large-Scale Sperm Cryopreservation Techniques for Striped Bass Aquaculture


    Hybrid striped bass (HSB) aquaculture has become the fourth largest form of U.S. finfish production, trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in market value. To compete effectively with low-cost foreign imports, U.S. HSB producers need to develop advanced strains that grow more rapidly and convert feed more efficiently. However, HSB are produced from two parental species (white bass and striped b ...

  4. Dense Multi-Wavelength Laser Clusters for Near Infrared Agricultural Spectroscopy

    SBC: Praevium Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Although Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRs) is a powerful non-invasive technique for identifying constituent components in a variety of agricultural products, current NIRs instrumentation is bulky and expensive, and requires long measurement times. This limits the use of NIRs in remote settings and high-speed sorting applications. This project seeks to apply miniaturized semiconductor laser technol ...

  5. An Interactive, Self-Paced Training Tool for Nutrition Education Paraprofessionals

    SBC: VALDEZ AND ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    The nutritional paradox in this nation is that although food is abundant, most Americans eat poorly. The American diet is characterized by high intake of fat and saturated fat, and low intake of calcium, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and fiber. The USDA¿s Healthy Eating Index gauges the adequacy of the American diet. The most recent Index reveals that only 10% of the U.S. population has a go ...

  6. Development of All-Female Populations of Striped Bass


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Striped bass culture has become the fourth largest form of fish production in the U.S., trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in terms of market value. Unfortunately, this promising new industry faces considerable market pressure from foreign competitors who often enjoy lower labor, water, and utility costs and fewer environmental regulations than encountered in the U.S. ...

  7. Development of an Organic Hawaiian Herbal Tea Industry

    SBC: Kini Po-Po Creations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas is limited by the fact that most ingredients are wild-crafted. This project examines the possibility of the organic production of Hawaiian herbal products and the associated processing and marketing required to develop a significant market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas.

  8. Use of Arabidopsis Transcription Factors to Increase Rubber Yield in Guayule

    SBC: Mendel Biotech Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Natural rubber is a vital and irreplaceable raw material. The United States uses approximately 20% of the global supply for its industries and is completely dependent on imports from developing countries. A dependable rubber supply is endangered by many factors, including susceptibility to pathogen attack, diminishing acreage as growers move toward higher value crops, increa ...

  9. Production of High-Grade Germline Chimeras for Genetic Manipulation of Chickens

    SBC: ORIGEN THERAPEUTICS            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The rate of germline transmission of chicken ES cells is usually low. This project examines the use of Stage VIII-IX embryos as recipients in the production of chimeras with ES cells to increase the rate of germline transmission.

  10. Automatic Assay of Blood Cholinesterase in the Field

    SBC: KUMETRIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a critical need for rapid, accurate measurement of serum cholinesterase activity in the field to provide a timely determination of nerve agent exposure. The overall objective of the project is to develop an easy-to-use analytical system consistingof small, inexpensive (and therefore disposable) silicon microchips used with a portable instrument, thus permitting field cholinesterase measur ...
