  1. REMOTE SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING USING WEB BROWSERS FOR IMPROVED IRRIGATION DECISION MAKING

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to field demonstrate a web browser based decision support system (DSS) providing real-time remote monitoring of various sensors placed at the root depth, and compiling weather station data to provide growers with important information for making irrigation decisions. Key features of the system are the ability to access multiple remote sites that contain monitoring equipment, using softw ...

  2. CHARACTER WOOD FURNITURE- OPPORTUNITIES FOR BUILDING A RURAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY

    SBC: Beeken/Parsons            Topic: N/A

    Adding value to an undervalued forest resource at the local level will benefit the economic, ecological and cultural health or rural forest dependent communities. A large percentage of hardwood is relegated to low value uses by virtue of naturally occurring character (knots, coloration, etc.). Many rural communities have abundant supplies of low value wood yet few opportunities currently exist to ...

  4. Effects Of Naked Dna And Subunit Ipnv

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) causes an economically significant, untreatabledisease in salmonid fish. Immunization appears to be the most promising control method, butcommercial vaccines are not readily available. We have previously developed and tested arecombinant IPNV vaccine in rainbow trout and brook trout fry. Although the vaccinesignificantly reduced fish mortality, it di ...

  7. Development of IPN Resistant Commercial Rainbow Trout Stocks

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: N/A

    It is estimated that 3 billion rainbow trout eggs were required to produce the world farmed harvest in 1994. The majority of these fish are reared in areas where infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) virus is endemic. Unfortunately, mortalities are highest before the fish are fully immunocompetent, making vaccination a less effective tool in disease prevention. Increasing the natural resistance ...

  9. Precision control of UV irradiance and ambient conditions to optimize the nutritional content, quality and consistency of indoor grown lettu

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the northeast there is an under-fulfilled year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is partially measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers & #39; markets since 1995. Urban centers (cities) in the industrial northeast have a large inventory of under-utilized, structurally sound factory buildings of various sizes which are of little or no economic val ...

  10. Low Energy Comminution of Herbaceous Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Size reduction, or comminution, is a fundamental processing step for lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks used as a raw material for conversion to biofuels. Grinding or milling of herbaceous materials such as corn stover, switchgrass, miscanthus and other biofuel feedstocks consumes a lot of energy, produces particle shapes that are difficult to handle, requires dry raw material, and often results i ...
