  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. SPLAT ACPAB A&K for the management of the Asian citrus psyllid, the key vector of Citrus Greening.

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    We seek an attractant for the asian citrus psyllid that can be formulated with ISCA's proprietary biodegradable matrix to provide an efficient attractant blend that is specific to ACP, creating a rain-fast product that sticks to foliage, protecting and releasing the active ingredient for more than two months in field situations. Applied mechanically, this formulation will be tested among fiel ...

  3. Development of bioherbicides for rice weed control

    SBC: MARRONE BIO INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 82

    Weed management is generally viewed as a major challenge in conventional, transitional and organic cropping systems. Natural product herbicides have the potential to play an important role on organic farms by reducing reliance on tillage and cultivation and by replacing expensive hand weeding operations. On the other hand, cost effective natural products with high efficacy could replace more toxic ...

  4. Zebra Chip Diagnosis

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Potato production in the US is being challenged by the introduction of a devastating new disease, the Zebra Chip (ZC) caused by a bacterium vectored by the potato psyllid.Here we propose the development of a handheld nanosensory ZebraChip detection system that is an easy to use, reliable bionanosensory system for the instantaneous detection of the ZC bacterium in the field. The proposed handheld n ...

  5. 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. Distributed Optical Fiber Sensor Cable for Air Quality (Air-Sense)

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The management of air quality in animal and poultry livestock environments can be challenging, not only due to the required quantitative and qualitative monitoring, but also for determining the air ventilation rates associated with elevated contaminant concentrations at high emission peaks. Ammonia, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide are generally considered the limiting hazardous gas compounds ...

  7. Low Cost Optical Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: Searchlight Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Ammonia is a toxic gas with a strong odor that is produced naturally in the biological degradation of organic matters and animal waste. Currently available ammonia sensors are either sensitive but too expensive or affordable but not able for an unattended, long term monitoring. Searchlight Sensors proposes to develop a low cost, small ammonia monitor with sufficient sensitivity and time response f ...

  8. Effective Semiochemical Management of the Oriental Beetle for the Small Blueberry Grower

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 812

    In areas where Oriental Beetle (OrB) is a pest, growers interested in producing blueberries for the organic market don't have a viable control solution. Here we propose to develop a revolutionary tool for the control of OrB at the adult stage: our Specialized Pheromone & Lure Application Technology (SPLAT) is a long lasting, flowable amorphous formulation for the controlled release of (Z)-7-t ...

  9. Global Feed in 3-D: An Information Technology Product for Strategic Decision Making and Market Analysis

    SBC: INNOVOSOY            Topic: 812

    The Illinois Soybean Association and the USDA initiated and supported the original research project that produced the prototype Global Food in 3?D and underlies the proposed new product, Global Feed in 3?D. The expected user groups were small and mid?sized farmer leaders and allied analysts and stakeholders as a result of the research's original design and goals. The research outcome of this ...

  10. Learning to Code with a Pretend Play Storytelling Model

    SBC: CODESPARK, INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, the developers created codeSpark, a game that employs a visual and block-based approach with puzzles to teach programming skills to children ages 5 to 9 years old. In this project, the developers will create a prototype of a fantasy-based story to be integrated within the existing game. The pretend-play scenarios will include characters, storylines, and incent ...
