  1. Sequence Specific, Nucleic Acid Separation Media for Plant Pathogen Diagnostics

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Commercial producers of nursery crops, plant seed, and food crops all require assurance of healthy planting stock. To address this need, laboratories, institutions and agencies, worldwide, use a variety of methods to examine plant materials and demonstrate that seeds, cuttings, and plants test free of pathogens. Such tests provide crops a passport to travel and give the grower confidence that a he ...

  2. Modular Shading Structure for High Value Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 813

    Shading vegetables and fruits can reduce temperatures resulting in improved fruit set, increase fruit size and quality, and reduce water consumption. Shading materials for reducing light intensity or transmission have been used extensively in the nursery industry as well as with large commercial growers of high value fruits and vegetables for many years. The physiological processes of plants have ...

  6. Ethanol Dual-Fuel Engine Retrofits to Displace Diesel Usage in Farm Equipment

    SBC: ClearFlame Engines, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Diesel engines are critical to the agriculture sector--and in many other applications--due to their strong performance and vaunted durability. However, despite their many benefits, these engines are tied to the dirty emissions and price volatility of Diesel fuel. This Diesel dependence puts pressure on manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards, and forces users to accept inc ...

  7. Smart Sensor for Aquaculture Nitrogen Using Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: ENERTREX CORP.            Topic: 87

    The country increasingly seeks locally produced, healthy food. Shrimp can provide significantly to these desires while reducing dependence on imports and enabling creation of jobs in all strata of society.To realize these benefits, the cost of shrimp production needs to be reduced to meet the existing competitive market. The success of our project will bring high-technology at low cost to a key co ...

  8. A novel approach to increasing and stabilizing bivalve shellfish seed supply: The mobile hatchery.

    SBC: Oyster Seed Holdings, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture is a rapidly expanding agricultural industry in the United States, with landings more than doubling in the last 5 years and creating many new jobs. Culture techniques and the water-filtering nature of oysters make them a very low impact crop with arguably, a net benefit to the environment (a unique trait compared to other intensively farmed proteins). Comprised of salt and br ...

  10. Swine Lagoon Treatment and Odor Capping System

    SBC: Pancopia, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Large-scale swine production has grown dramatically in the past two decades, creating adverse environmental and health effects. In North Carolina alone, health impacts of atmospheric emissions are estimated to exceed $300 million. Coupled with environmental damages, this has resulted in moratoriums on new facilities, as well as tougher regulations for waste streams. An effective treatment and odor ...
