  1. Field Device for Determining Atomization Properties of Agrochemical Tank Mixes

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Responsible and efficient use of agrochemicals is a balance between mitigating the undesirable drift and other off-site movement and optimizing the efficacy of the applied spray. Often, these demands can be in direct conflict, e.g., very large droplets reduce drift but may run off the target or may be ineffective against pests on leaf undersides. Depending on the immediate weather conditions, the ...

  2. A Device to Package a Semi-Solid Diet for Rearing Arthropod Predators

    SBC: Beneficial Insectary, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new semisolid artificial diet enclosed in membranes that allow feeding by the predacious green lacewing, Chrysoperla rufilabris, has been invented by USDA/ARS scientist A. Cohen. Phase I studies conducted by Beneficial Insectary showed that the Cohen diet in the Cohen food pack was superior in several key areas to the live insect diet currently used for commercial mass rearing of C. rufilabris. ...

  3. Improvement of a Bio-PCR Test for Routine Detection of Watermelon Fruit Blotch Pathogen

    SBC: CalSPL            Topic: N/A

    Fruit blotch is a serious seedborne disease of watermelon. In an attempt to control this disease, the seed industry has adopted a zero tolerance of infected seeds. Available tests for detecting infected seeds include grow-out, liquid plating, classical PCR tests. These tests are either not sensitive enough, resulting in false negative, not specific enough, resulting in false positives, or are very ...

  4. 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.

  5. Innovative Tools and Methods for Date Protection Using a Sex Pheromone Mimic

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

    In this Phase II USDA SBIR we propose to research and develop a SPLAT CMMP solution that is effective and long-lasting, that can be applied in a cost-effective manner, and that can economically replace Malathion dusting. Specifically, we will work toward further increasing the longevity of SPLAT CMMP, formulate different doses of SPLAT CMMP, explore alternate methods of application, and evaluate v ...

  6. Organic control of the key pest of grapes in small eastern US vineyards: mating disruption simplified through mechanization

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

    The majority of grape growers in the eastern US grow grapes for juice on farms of less than 100 acres, yielding less than $200,000 in income. Most of this acreage is grown under contract with National Grape Cooperative for processing into Welch's grape juice and related products. Recently the grape industry lost a number of effective insect pest management tools, remaining with very few options fo ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Maximizing Nutrient Utilization of High-Energy Feeds in Striped Bass Aquaculture

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We will conduct research on nutrition and food intake regulation mechanism in hybrid striped bass. We will determine: 1) how dietary energy density, satiated feeding, energy-to-protein ratios, fish size, and temperature affect food and energy consumption rates; 2) how "high-energy" diets can improve growth and feed conversion; and 3) how these diets affect fish health, effluent water quality, and ...

  9. Expanding Domestic and Export Markets for Open-Ocean Aquaculture Products by Value-Adding

    SBC: Kona Blue Water Farms, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Increasing seafood production is important for the national economy, national health, and the environment. The U.S. Department of Commerceýýs goal is for a 5-fold increase in aquaculture production value, to $5 billion, by 2025. Open ocean aquaculture represents the best opportunity for meeting this goal. The main goal of Phase II research is to broaden the market for open ocean farmed products, ...

  10. A Novel, Low-Energy Stripper-Membrane Hybrid Process for Bioethanol Production, Phase II

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The current distillation-molecular sieve process for ethanol separation from corn fermentation broth uses up to 20% of the energy content of the ethanol produced. It is expected that even more energy will be used to separate ethanol from cellulosic fermentation broths because they contains less ethanol. Therefore, development of a lower-energy ethanol separation process is of considerable interest ...
