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 AN ASSAY SYSTEM FOR THE RAPID DETECTION OF TRICHINOSIS IN SWINE

    SBC: Innovative Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS BEING SUPPORTED TO DEVELOP AND MARKET A RAPID, SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE TEST DEVICE WHICH CAN BE USED BY NON-LABORATORY TRAINED PERSONNEL IN FIELD SIT- UATIONS TO RAPIDLY SCREEN AND DETECT TRICHINELLA IN INFECTED SWINE. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE PROCEDURE WILL REQUIRE ONLY ONE STEP, BE RAPID, REQUIRE NO LABORATORY INSTRUMENTATION AND BE DESIGNED SO THAT MULTIPLE SAMPLES CAN BE SIMUL ...

  2. A PRACTICAL METHOD TO DETERMINE VERTICAL HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY IN LOW-PERMEABLE SOIL

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERTICAL SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY OF SOIL ABOVE A DEEP WATER TABLE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS GOVERNING FLOW AND TRANSPORT. THIS PARAMETER IS USED IN WATER BALANCE STUDIES OF CROP PRODUCTION, IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE SYSTEM DESIGN, RANGELANDAND FOREST WATERSHED MANAGEMENT, SOIL CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENTS, AND REMEDIAL ACTION DESIGN. THE CURRENT METHODS EITHER REQUIRE ONE TO ...

  3. THE USE OF STRAW BALES FOR BUILDING RURAL LOW INCOME HOUSING

    SBC: Straw-bale Construction            Topic: N/A

    STRAW BALES HAVE BEEN USED FOR AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS IN THE PAST. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THIS METHODOLOGY CAN NOW BE ADAPTED TO PROVIDE SAFE, LOW COST HOUSING FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES. QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED ARE - THE EXTENT OF THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROBLEM IN RURAL COMMUNITIES - THE TECHINCAL PROBLEMS OF PRODUCING SUITABLE STRAW BALES - THE DESIGN OF A STRAW BALE HOUSE WHICH MAXIMIZES THE OPPORTINI ...

  4. ONE-STEP INFLOW/OUTFLOW CELL TO DETERMINE SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE RELATIONSHIP AMONG WATER POTENTIAL, HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY, AND WATER CONTENT (P-K-O) ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMONLY SOUGHT SOIL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES. PREDICTION OF WATER AND SOLUTE MOVEMENT IN BOTH AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SITUATIONS IS ULTIMATELY PREDICATED UPON AN ADEQUATE EXPERIMENTAL DESCRIPTION OF POROUS MEDIA. A RAPID AND ACCURATE METHOD TO DETERMINE THESE RELATIONSHIPS WOULD FIND W ...

  5. FEEDS AND FEEDING STRATEGIES FOR ALLEVIATING WINTER KILL IN CATFISH

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    THE TERM WINTER KILL REFERS TO A SERIOUS DISEASE PROBLEM AFFECTING POND-REARED CHANNEL CATFISH DURING THE LATE FALL, WINTER, AND EARLY SPRING. FISH LOSES CAN BE HIGH AND ALL SIZES OF FISH CAN BE AFFECTED. THE CAUSE AND PATHOGENESIS OF WINTER KILL IS LARGELY UNKNOWN. IT IS BELIEVED THAT IT IS CAUSED BY SOME PREDISPOSING CONDITION THAT DECREASES THE ABILITY OF THE FISH TO ADAPT TO STRESS ASSOCIATED ...

  6. Biobased, Monomers for Low Odor, Low VOC Architectural Latex Paints

    SBC: Southern Diversified Products, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project proposes the development of industrial agri-based oil monomers for the preparation of low odor, low VOC architectural latex coatings. The process for preparing acrylate and/or methacrylate monomers derived from castor oil and other industrial oils, such as soybean and linseed oils, involves an acrylate derivatization step. Monomers based on castor oil have been incorporated into latex ...

  7. Spawning and Hatchery Technology to Improve Hybrid Catfish Production

    SBC: Alabama Catfish Inc. d/b/a Harvest Select Farm            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Catfish imports are coming from third world nations capable of producing catfish and selling lower prices than American counterparts. Therefore, methods that improve efficiency and reduce the cost of producing catfish would be a tremendous asset to the industry. The hybrid catfish between channel catfish female and blue catfish males has been shown to have many superior char ...

  8. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  9. Phase II: Materials Characterization $ Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Earth-lined ditches lose between 55 and 90 percent of the water that flows through them. This project will produce a working prototype of a connectorless irrigation ditch liner.

  10. Engineered Wodd Chip Composite Erosion Control Material

    SBC: Restoration Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Erosion control Best Management Practices (BMPs) have been developed for many situations, including building construction, highway construction, and stormwater management. As increasing awareness of the costs of erosion has occurred (soil loss, damage, water quality degradation) the number of erosion control materials available has increased. Restoration Technologies has worked with its collaborat ...
