  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

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


    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 ...

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


    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 ...
