  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A FAST SCREEN (ON-SITE) ANALYTICAL ASSAY FOR PYRIDINE HERBICIDES IN ANIMAL WASTE AND COMPOST

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: n/a

    The object of this proposal is to develop a new analytical method (lateral flow immunochromatographic device) for the rapid and on-site detection of pyridine carboxylic acid herbicides (aminopyralid, clopyralid, picloram and triclopyr) in compost and animal waste. The availability of a screening method to determine if compost is safe to be used in crops and ornamental flowers will greatly help pro ...

  6. Portable Mid Infrared Analyzer for Onsite Measurement of Nitrate and Organic Matter in Soil

    SBC: WILKS ENTERPRISE, INC.            Topic: n/a

    Nitrate is an important nutrient for crop production. Soils with excess nitrate amounts and shallow groundwater tables pose a high risk to nitrate leaching into drinking water supplies. A shortage of nitrate decreases agricultural productivity. Measurement of soil nitrate content is a tedious, time consuming, and expensive process. Currently, there are no commercial sensors for in-situ nitrate det ...

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

    SBC: ADVANCED BIOLOGICAL MARKETING, INC.            Topic: n/a

    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 ...

  8. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: n/a

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...
