The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  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    Agriculture needs new bio-rational pest control agents to replace outdated synthetic chemicals.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. First Triploidy in Tropical Bivalves: Can This Increase Profitability in Pearl Farms?

    SBC: Black Pearls Inc            Topic: N/A

    Triploidy offers an excellent opportunity for increased profitability and competitiveness of hatchery-based pearl farming in the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands and Hawaii, for little additional cost. Techniques developed in Phase I for inducing triploidy in black-lip pearl oysters (Pinctada margaritifera) using Cytochalasin B and 6-DMAP were very successful ? up to 100% in several cases. These ex ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Commercial Culture of Asian Sea Bass (Lates Calcarifer)

    SBC: Hawaii Fish Company            Topic: N/A

    Objectives: Phase I research demonstrated the feasibility of rotifer production and enrichment, and day 1-15 larval rearing of Asian sea bass (Lates calcarifer) at an inland hatchery site in Hawaii. The overall objective of the Phase II research and development effort will be to remove all further technical impediments to the profitable culture of Asian sea bass in Hawaii. The specific technical o ...

  6. Hawaii-Molokai Solar Sea Salt

    SBC: Hawaii Kai Salts            Topic: N/A

    HMSSS project focuses on the production of solar sea salt-leveraging sun, seawater, and wind resources-as the basis for commercial enterprises, jobs, and entrepreneurial opportunities for Molokai, an economically depressed community. The feasibility of HMSSS processes was clearly substantiated by Phase I test results, which showed that the processed products met FDA requirements. Phase II is the c ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...
