  2. Improved Agricultural Sustainability through Microbially Enhanced Nitrogen Fertilizer Use Efficiency and Yield


    The proposed phase II project focuses on an economically and environmentally important project, which is to develop and document efficacy of wheat seed treatments that will increase yields and enable a reduction in nitrogen fertilizer use in this crop. Nitrogen fertilizer not taken up by crops is readily leached into waterways as nitrates and nitrates that enhance algal blooms that, when they deco ...

  4. Highly Efficient Luminaires for Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting


    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture businesses in northern "climatically challenged" regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and carbon dioxide in a hydroponics environment.Pr ...

  5. Demonstrate the Safety and Efficacy of a PRRS-RP Vaccine Candidate

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) costs the swine industry approximately $560M annually through reproductive loss in mature females and respiratory disease in growing pigs. There is a need for new vaccines for PRRSV to battle the strain evolution and heterogeneity of this RNA virus. Currently the only available US commercial product is a Modified Live Virus (MLV) from BI- ...

  6. A New Nano Based Real-Time Aflatoxin Detector Phase II


    Aflatoxin was discovered in groundnut meal which killed over 10,000 turkeys in England. Poultry are extremely sensitive to aflatoxin B1 with turkeys being more sensitive than chickens. Later research discovered that poultry are the most susceptible food animal species to the toxic effects of aflatoxin. Based on epidemiological data and knowledge of liver biochemistry it is suggested that humans fa ...

  7. Development of a digital photorefractor to detect amblyogenic risk factors

    SBC: VIVAKOR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): If left undetected and untreated, reduced vision in one eye can lead to monocular blindness in an amblyopic eye. Most vision screening is conducted on children once they have started kindergarten; this is after the critical detection period for the treatment of amblyopia. Early detection is essential for favorable prognosis. Unfortunately less than 21% of pre-k ...

  10. Exosomal microRNA profiles as diagnostic biomarkers of ovarian cancer

    SBC: TEKSHIFA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Detection of ovarian cancer at Stage I results in 5-year survivals of greater than 90%; however, only 23% of ovarian cancers are diagnosed early, with 67% being diagnosed with metastatic disease. Thus, new markers are being sought to accurate identify patients with ovarian cancer, particularly in early stage. Emerging evidence suggests the potential involvement ...
