  1. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  2. Pneumatic Conveyance Technology for Native Seed Harvesters

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

    Reclamation or restoration of sustainable native grasslands is constrained by the lack of seed of many difficult to harvest species. The lack of seed of many species stems from the lack of harvest equipment that can effectively dislodge, separate, convey, and off-load seed with challenging morphologies. The project will develop a pneumatic conveyance technology to integrate with the seed dislodgem ...

  3. Integration of Oxygen and Total Dissolved Gas Pressure (TDGP) Sensing

    SBC: Common Sensing Inc            Topic: N/A

    There is still a need for low-cost, reliable dissolved gas sensors for water quality in environmental monitoring, aquaculture wastewater treatment and industry in order to provide analytical capability to facilities, communities greatly in need of such capability as water budgets become increasingly stringent and re-use increaingly important. This project seeks to further integrate both Total Diss ...

  4. Camelina Sativa: A Multiuse Oil Crop for Biofuel, Omega-3 Cooking Oil, and Protein/Oil Source for Animal Feed

    SBC: Great Northern Growers Cooperative            Topic: N/A

    Situation Camelina sativa (camelina, false flax, or Gold of Pleasure) is an under-utilized crop that contains valuable oil, fiber and high quality protein with many potential uses in both nutrition (human and animal) and industrial applications: Camelina has been evaluated for oil production in the US (Robinson, 1987; Putman et al. 1993), but surprisingly, it has not yet emerged as a viable US cro ...

  5. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...

  6. Development of a Novel "Systematic, Integrated Component Approach" To Produce Artificial Diets for Monarch Butterflies, Queen Butterflies

    SBC: INSECT DIET & REARING INSTITUTE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Millions of brush footed butterflies, are sold yearly for education, research, environmental concerns, and for ceremony. However, monarchs and are among the most popular products. Also, because of environmental concerns, monarchs are important to ecologists, educators, and biotechnologists. However, monarch availability is limited and costly because rearing requires fresh milkweeds. We will develo ...

  7. Bacillus Mycoides: Induced Systemic Resistance for Disease Control in Agricultural Crops

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Microbial or biochemical agents that control plant diseases by inducing systemic resistance to pathogen infection could play a significant role in crop disease management. Bacillus mycoides, isolate J, BmJ, represents the first such agent that acts by foliar (rather than root) application and that does not cause leaf tissue damage in any plants. Disease control with this strain was previously demo ...

  8. An Ultra-Sensitive Detector for On-Line Measurement of Volatile Molecules Produced by Diseased Potato Tubers

    SBC: Remote Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It has been well established that disease in stored potatoes and many other vegetables and fruits generate a variety of volatile compounds that are released into the storage space Furthermore, specific types of disease produce volatile compounds that generate unique fingerprints on ultra-sensitive spectrographic molecular detection devices. The background atmosphere of commercial storage facilitie ...

  9. Energy-Scavenging Animal Telemetry Device

    SBC: TENXSYS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current animal telemetry devices are large and heavy due to their reliance on batteris to power the electronics and radios. Because of this, many species can't be effectively studied since they can not support the device weight. The smaller size will allow animal telemetry devices to be developed for species that have not had effective monitoring devices previously. The longer duration devices wil ...

  10. Small Crawler Tractor for Wildland Fire Suppression and Management

    SBC: TNC-2 Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project will develop and demonstrate two Small Crawler Tractor (SCT2) prototypes for wildland fire suppression and management activities. Phase 1 successfully demonstrated the feasibility of using the Phase 1 unit (SCT1) for these applications. The SCT2 will have more power, weight, traction and rollover stability to meet requirements identified in Phase 1. However, it will be small a ...
