  1. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture, the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to add precision to all aspects of the farm. Through "mapping the farm," precision management strategies can be implemented such as: targeted herbicide application, targeted soil management, improved yield predictions, improved management of water, and other farm resources. These practices all require informa ...

  2. Increasing Production Capacity of Small-Scale Hydroponic Greenhouse Farmers by Utilizing Greenhouse "Dead-Space"

    SBC: GSS Group 'A LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY'            Topic: 812

    Small-scale hydroponic greenhouse farmers rely on current products to maximize their production potential. The highest selling commercial hydroponic systems for leafy green crops andstrawberry production are known as horizontal Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) systems. Though these systems are proven to be efficient and profitable, they limit the grower to a production capacity basedon a 2D plane res ...

  3. InfinitPipe: An Economically Sustainable Pipe for Agricultural Use

    SBC: Quakewrap, Inc.            Topic: 84

    For centuries, pipes have been manufactured in short (20-30 ft long) segments and trucked to the jobsite where they are assembled to create a long pipeline. This technique is inefficient as the pipes tend to leak at the joints and there is significant cost associated with delivering voluminous pipe segments. Furthermore, pipes made with steel or concrete corrode and have a short service life.The g ...

  4. Testing feasibility and scalability of a new engineered design of an aerated static pile composting system.

    SBC: Compost Plant, L3C, The            Topic: 86

    Food waste is a significant and complex problem for the United States. Americans generate over 250 million (short) tons of trash a year, and organic materials such as paper and paperboard, yard trimmings, and food waste continue to make up a large component of the waste stream. These organic materials collectively account for a significant portion of U.S. methane emissions, as organic waste produc ...

  5. Out of season production of largemouth bass fingerlings on a commercial scale

    SBC: DUNN'S FISH FARMS, INC.            Topic: 87

    Our goal is to commercialize the largemouth bass fingerling production system/strategy that was proven effective through our Phase 1 project. This system employs "out-of-season" fall spawning followed by winter feed-training and the on-growing of advanced fingerlings indoors. In Phase 1 we developed broodstock acclimation facilities and protocols for out-of-season spawning in raceways. We showed t ...

  6. Barley Biorefinery: Protein Concentrates and BioBased Chemicals

    SBC: MONTANA BIOAGRICULTURE INC.            Topic: 86

    The phase II project is a key element in a larger project to develop value added agricultural manufacturing in rural communities. In phase 1 MBAI demonstrated feasibility of producing multiple high value co-products in a barley biorefinery.The current process uses barley to produce barley protein concentrate, BPC, with ethanol as a co-product. BPC has valuable markets as a protein ingredient in aq ...

  7. Randomized Prospective Phase II Clinical Trial of NVX in Association with Chemoradiation of Glioblastoma

    SBC: NUVOX PHARMA, L.L.C.            Topic: 102

    Glioblastoma multiforme GBM is a malignant primary brain tumor affecting about new cases per year in the U S Average survival is only about months Radiation RT is most commonly administered as fractions of Gray each over weeks with concomitant temozolomide TMZ GBM tumors are hypoxic The primary mechanism of RT is creation of singlet oxygen hypoxia within GBM adversel ...

  9. Disaggregation of Toxic Protein Oligomers in Brain with Electromagnetic Treatment

    SBC: NeuroEM Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: 104

    ABSTRACT Formation of misfolded protein oligomers in neurons is an early and causative event in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer s Disease amyloid and tau oligomers Fronto temporal lobe dementia tau oligomers and Parkinson s Disease synuclein oligomers These toxic oligomers share a common aggregation mechanism that involves formation of hydrogen bonds betwee ...
