  1. System For Biologic Control of Soybean Cyst Nematode

    SBC: 3BAR BIOLOGICS INC.            Topic: 82

    This project will develop and qualify a system that is capable of treating soybean farming operations where susceptibility to SCN is the primary yield limiting pest. Soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines; SCN) is the major pathogen of soybean causing over $1 billion in crop losses annually. SCN is now considered endemic to North America and is spreading as more acres of land are planted in so ...

  2. Development of Rigorous and Reliable Methods to Preserve Maize Pollen

    SBC: Accelerated AG Technologies, LLC            Topic: 82

    The seed industry generates tremendous value from hybrid crops relative to varietal or self-pollinated crops. For example, while corn (a hybrid crop) and soybeans (a self-pollinated crop) were planted on approximately the same land area in the U.S. in 2015, the total value of the corn hybrid seed industry was greater than 4x the value of the soybean seed industry. However, producing hybrid seed is ...

  3. Deriving a new biobased product from wastewater: Production of a slow release algal-based fertilizer.

    SBC: GROSS-WEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 84

    The release of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus into our natural waterbodies is a major issue negatively impacting the United States environmentally and economically. It is estimated that it costs the Gulf Coast fishing industry approximately $82 million per year. This issue is caused by misplaced nutrients. This project uses an algae-based treatment system to remove nutrients from a plac ...

  4. An Innovative Method For Drying Hay

    SBC: GIRD SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 813

    This research supports the development of an innovative method of drying hay that will help to reduce farmers' dependence on good weather for hay harvesting. Currently, farmers need to dry hay down to 15% moisturein the field after mowing to allow for proper storage. Typically, this drying process takes 3 days of good weather (warm, sunshine, breeze) which can be rare, especially in the spring ...

  5. In-Flight Measurements of Spray System Droplet Size for Aerial Chemical Application

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The spray application of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and growth regulators produces substantial benefits in crop yields. Aerial spray application of bulk materials offers advantages such as efficiency, speed, and access to constrained areas. However, a disadvantage with spray application is the unintended drift of spray droplets. Spray drift reduces efficiency, increases cost, and produces ...
