  1. A Biodegradable Thin-Film Mulching System for Weed Suppression in Commercial Crop Production

    SBC: Technical Designs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Weeds reduce the productivity of vegetable crops. Noxious weeds like nutsedge can contaminate a field in one and a half years. To remediate the weed cost, $7,000 to $11,000 for plastic, fumigant and hand weeding is necessary in strawberries. In southern California, 10 to 20 percent of the farmland has a high-density infestation of nutsedge. Methyl bromide applied at high levels is partially effect ...

  9. A Novel Therapy for Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B Poisoning

    SBC: Soymeds Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Staphylococcus aureus is a significant human pathogen which can produce a variety of toxins, including the exotoxin, staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB). SEB is highly toxic in small doses, and the compact structure of this protein makes it resistant to heat and denaturation. The combination of toxicity and stability caused this toxin to be selected for weaponiz ...
