  1. The Use of Algal-Scrubber Technology in the Treatment of Dairy-Processing Wastes

    SBC: AgResearch International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal would establish a pilot-scale algal scrubber to treat secondary discharge from dairy-processing plants. Algal scrubbers are fixed-media structures for culturing periphyton communities with two major components: an autotrophic assemblage of microscopic, filamentous algae, and an association of heterotrophic bacteria and protozoans. Under conditions favorable to photosynthesis, the ...

  2. The Development of a Superior Hybrid Pasture Grass (Festulolium braunii)

    SBC: AgResearch International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intensive rotational grazing is gaining popularity among livestock producers. Present varieties of forage species are not well adapted to intensive grazing. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and Festulolium (Festulolium braunii K. A.) a ryegrass X meadow fescue (Festuca pratense Hude.) cross, have exhibited superior characteristics, in high nutrition, palatability, and animal performance. ...

  3. Performance Evaluation of Five Strains of Striped Bass

    SBC: Aquafuture, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project seeks to identify superior strains of striped bass by evaluating the progeny of five wild strains collected from a broad geographic range. The collections are designed to evaluate genetically distinct strains. In order to control for the effect of family differences, five families will be collected from each of the strains and their performance will be evaluated and compared ...

  4. Effects of Intratesticular Injection of Enzyme on Growth and Carcass Characteristics in Boars

    SBC: BIOPURE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Open surgical castration is a routine procedure on neonatal boars to prevent the offensive odor known as "boar taint" which is released when meat from affected animals is cooked. Castration produces a predictable incidence of side-effects including stress, hemorrhage, hernia, infection and mortality, which become more prevalent if castration is performed after weaning. Castration also produces a ...

  5. Continuous Monitoring of Recirculated Aquaculture Water

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

    Control of recirculated water in aquaculture systems will require the monitoring of several important parameters to assure the absence of toxic conditions and verify the effectiveness of treatment processes. These parameters include nitrite, ammonia, pH, dissolved oxygen and total suspended solids. The proposed research investigates two techniques for on-line analysis of ammonia that can be used ...

  6. A COST-EFFECTIVE BACTERIAL SEED TREATMENT FOR SEED ROT

    SBC: Bozeman Bio-tech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEED ROT CAUSED BY THE FUNGUS PYTHIUM ULTIMUM IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF CROP LOSS IN NORTHERN CLIMATES WHERE COOL PLANTING SEASONS ARE COMMON. SEEDS ARE GENERALLY TREATED WITH THE FUNGICIDES METALAXYL AND CAPTAN (BANNED IN GERMANY) TO PREVENT SEED ROT. A BIOTYPE OF THE BACTERIA PSEUDOMONAS AUREOFACIENS -- AB 254 -- HAS PERFORMED AS WELL AS METALAXYL IN PREVENTING SEED ROT FOR SWEET CORN AND BEETS, AND, ...

  8. INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE N2 FIXING AND NITROGENASE ACTION IN FIELD-GROWN LEGUMES

    SBC: Morgan Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXTENSIVE RESEARCH IS BEING CONDUCTED TO OPTIMIZE NITROGEN (N2) FIXATION RATE IN LEGUMINOUS CROPS, AND TO INTRODUCE N2-FIXING ABILITY INTO NONE-LEGUMINEOUS CROPS. THIS RESEARCH REQUIRES A METHOD TO CONDUCT CONTINUOUS, NININVASIVE MEASUREMENTS OF NITROGENASE ACTIVITY IN INTACT NODULATED ROOTS, PARTICULARLY IN FIELD STUDIES. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE METHODS ARE EITHER INHIBITORY OR ONLY PROVIDE MEASUREME ...

  9. OVER-THE-HORIZON DATA/VIDEO LINKS FOR RURAL AREAS

    SBC: Signatron Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL INVESTIGATES AN EXTENDED LINE-OF-SIGHT RADIO TECHNIQUE FOR LOW-COST DATA AND VIDEO LINKING OF RURAL ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS. EFFECTIVE RURAL WIDEBAND COMMUNICATIONS ARE OFTEN HAMPERED BY THE DIFFICULTY OF OBTAINING RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR CABLES AND/OR BY THE COST OF LEASED LINES OR SATELLITE CHANNELS. DIRECT RADIO LINKS WOULD BE ATTRACTIVE DUE TO THEIR NON-INTRUSIVE NATURE, P ...

  10. A BOOTSTRAPPED METEOROLOGICAL THERMOMETER

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

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE FIELD INSTRUMENT FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE TO AN ABSOLUTE ACCURACY OF 0.01 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENT WOULD SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVE OUR ABILITY TO MEASURE AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE AND, IN ADDITION, IT WOULD BE ACCURATE ENOUGH SO THAT IT COULD BECOME A STANDARD INSTRUMENT FOR THE CALIBRATION OF FIE ...
