  1. Protein Quantity and Quality for Channel Catfish Feeds

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

    Protein is the most expensive component comprising a catfish feed; thus, a reduction in feed cost can most likely be achieved by either reducing the concentration of dietary protein, by using less expensive plant proteins, or by a combination of these factors. Feedstuffs of animal origin are expensive yet they are generally considered to be essential in catfish feeds. If low-protein, all plant-p ...

  2. MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVES DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS

    SBC: Ecoscience Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO IDENTIFY MICROORGANISMS CAPABLE OF PREVENTING POSTHARVEST DECAY IN TROPICAL FRUITS CAUSED BY PLANT PATHOGENIC FUNGI. ECOSCIENCE HAS DEMONSTRATED SUCCESS IN THE MICROBIAL CONTROL OF POSTHARVEST FUNGAL DECAYS IN POME FRUITS. WE WILL BUILD ON THIS EXPERIENCE TO DISCOVER AND DEVELOP MICROBIAL CONTROL AGENTS THAT CAN PREVENT INFECTION (E.G., CROWN ROT OF BANANA) OR INHIBIT ...

  3. Electron Disinfestation/Sterilization of Powders and Aggregates Using Pneumatic Transfer

    SBC: Medpack, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The sterilization of powders and disinfestation of aggregates using existing technology present difficult product handling problems and often unacceptable economics. Ethylene Oxide is widely used for this purpose, while the alternate non-chemical (physical) processes of heat and gamma - radiations are expensive and frequently result in unacceptable damage to the product. The proposed program wil ...

  4. The Effect of Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methyl Butyrate on Immune Function and Mortality in Young Broilers

    SBC: MTI Biotech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Mortality during broiler growout still averages from 4 to 6% in the US. Mortality and morbidity are primary sources of economic loss for poultry and livestock producers. Control of morbidity and mortality has generally been accomplished through the use of vaccines and feed antibiotics. In spite of these protective measures, livestock producers still suffer losses due to mortality and sub-clinic ...

  5. Instrument for Measurement of Global and Direct Components of Solar Ultraviolet-B Radiation

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project would lead to the development of a low cost ($10-20,000) solar ultraviolet-B radiation instrument capable of measuring the narrowband direct, diffuse and global solar spectral radiation in the 300-368 nm wavelength range. This new instrument is an extension of the well-proven multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer and would substantially improve the existing measurement o ...

  8. LOW-COST CERAMIC MEMBRANES FOR FOOD PROCESSING

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MEMBRANES ARE RAPIDLY EMERGING AS A NEW TECHNOLOGY IN MEMBRANE SEPARATIONS. HOWEVER, COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE DEVICES HAVE HIGH COSTS RELATIVE TO POLYMERIC MEMBRANES, TYPICALLY FIVE TO TEN TIMES HIGHER. THE TECHNOLOGY TO BE DEVELOPED EMPLOYS A UNIQUE APPROACH TO CERAMIC MEMBRANE MODULE DESIGN. THE MODULE CONCEPT SHOULD RESULT IN PRODUCTION OF CERAMIC MEMBRANES WITH A COST LESS THAN THOSE FOR ...

  9. DETECTION OF ERYTHROMYCIN IN ANIMAL-DERIVED PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hybrivet Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW, RAPID AND SENSITIVE TEST METHOD FOR THE DETECTION OF ERYTHROMYCIN IN ANIMAL-DERIVED PRODUCTS SUCH AS MILK AND MEAT WILL BE DEVELOPED BASED ON IMMUNOASSAY METHODOLOGY. DIRECTED SYNTHETIC TECHNIQUES WILL BE USED TO PREPARE THE IMMUNOGENS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP ANTIBODIES, BOTH MONOCLONAL AND CONVENTIONAL, WITH THE BROADEST RECOGNITION FOR ALL DRUGS IN THE MACROLIDE CLASS OF ANTIBIOTICS AS WELL ...

  10. ENHANCING SWINE PROFITABILITY WITH A MULTI-FARM FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE

    SBC: Swine Graphics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SWINE PRODUCERS AND SWINE INDUSTRY CONSULTANTS MUST DETERMINE WHAT AREAS OF SWINE PRODUCTION ARE LEAST EFFICIENT ECONOMICALLY IN ORDER TO REGAIN PROFITABILITY. BYDEVELOPING AN INTEGRATED, DETAILED FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE, SWINE PRODUCERS WILL BE ABLE TO DETERMINE INEFFICIENCIES IN THEIR OWN BUSINESSES THROUGH ANALYSIS OF THEIR DATA, AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO PLAN THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION BY ...
