  2. Improved Soybean Feed for Use in Aquaculture

    SBC: Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Soybean meal has long been a critical input for animal feed in monogastric animals (such as chickens and pigs) as it provides an ideal protein profile to promote healthy, rapid animal growth at a competitive price. More recently, aquaculture, the fastest growing commercial animal protein segment, has sought to take advantage of the protein and cost advantages of soybean meal as an affordable prote ...

  3. Developing an accurate remote early disease identification system in cattle to promote judicious use of antimicrobials.

    SBC: PROFESSIONAL BEEF SERVICES, LLC            Topic: 83

    Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is the most common and economically significant disease in beef calves costing the industry over $700 million annually. Antimicrobial BRD therapy can be effective when applied appropriately; however, conventional diagnostic methods rely almost exclusively on human observation resulting in numerous misclassifications. A remote early disease identification (REDI) sys ...

  5. Sustainable Indoor growing System (SIGS) for the production of grafted vegetable plants

    SBC: Grafted Growers, LLC.            Topic: 813

    Current Problem & Importance of Solution Vegetable field growers are constantly faced with soil borne disease pressure that significantly reduces crop yields and profitability, limits the amount of quality vegetables in the stores, and increases the price of fresh produce. To solve the problem large vegetable growers treated their fields with an ozone depleting fumigant, methylbromide, which c ...

  6. Visual Ontological Language for Technical Standards (VOLTS)

    SBC: Aztera, LLC            Topic: 9010273R

    Current research shows that failures in the standardization process are often the result of a failure of the participants to communicate or organize. To this effect, NIST has developed a tool, NIST Ontological Visualization Interface for Standards (NOVIS), with an environment for visualizing, browsing, and querying standards. Aztera will create a Computer Aided Standards Development (CASD) framewo ...
