  5. Encapsulated Earthworm Cocoon (eggs) Viability Studies for Sustainable Soil Management

    SBC: Advanced Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our assertion is that intensive tillage methods have destroyed the viability of our croplands over the last one half century. In order to maintain the ability of these lands to grow crops, we have used and over-used chemical fertilizers which pose an ongoing environmental threat to our air and waterways. The benefits of conservation tillage methods are widely known, however the time to successfull ...

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Every year natural and man-caused disturbances (wildfire, construction of highways and facilities, mining, noxious weeds infestation, and overgrazing) damage and destroy millions of hectares of native vegetation. These vast disturbances require restoration and federal entities emphasize the use of native plant materials. Without restorative intervention, land recovery may take decades, leaving eco ...

  7. Linear Incendiary Device and Method of Prescribed Fire Ignition

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    Solutions to help overcome the present limitations in conducting prescribed burning could help land managers in their efforts to accomplish needed fuels reduction in the forests. Opportunities exist for developing improvements in the methods and materials used in the ground-based ignition of prescribed fires. Improved ignition techniques could enable managers to conduct burns at times where weathe ...

  8. Encapsulated Bentonite for Abandoned Well Sealing

    SBC: BEN-CAP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Water is the essence of life. Few will disagree that it is a resource that must be protected for the well-being of all: plant and animal. Millions of holes have been and are being drilled in the earth to search for water, uranium, oil and gas, and coal-bed methane. Many thousands of these holes are mid-depth (500-4500 feet) and fill with water if the drills penetrate one or more aquifers. When the ...

  10. Range Tech DSS: Decision Support System for Rangeland Health Monitoring

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current systems for acquiring and accessing rangeland health data are inadequate to meet the needs of an increasingly complex management process that requires public accountability. Traditional field-based data acquisition, such as visual assessment, quadrat, and point frame methods are highly subjective, time consuming or too costly to practically apply over large land management units. While the ...
