  1. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Identification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Filamentous microfungi (often colloquially known as "molds") are a major cause of food wastage throughout the world, accounting for the loss of about 10% of all food production. Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pic ...

  2. Evaluating Various Inclusion Rates of Pine Wood Chips in Finished Compost When Used as an Erosion Control Product

    SBC: Compost Wizard            Topic: N/A

    Overabundance of fiber from young trees derived from first thinnings with little or no market is a serious problem for the timber industry as well as private landowners. Because of this, many private landowners fail to conduct appropriate timber management which in turn causes reductions in stand volume, increased risk of insect and/or disease from reduced stand vigor, reduced browse for wildlife ...

  3. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    While termites inflict almost $4 Billion dollars in damage per year in the United States, termite control still depends upon labor intensive and expensive manual monitoring techniques. This project will determine the feasibility of deploying acoustic sensor arrays that will alert a Pest Management Professional (PMP) of termite activity.

  4. Microbiological Water Purifiers for Rural Communities

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the needs of the more than 25 million Americans dependant on the current supply of water from USEPA non-compliant community or private well sources for day-to-day drinking water. Rural communities have a need for a water purification technology that is superior in performance to currently available technology. Citizens risk disease and/or death when exposed to water that is ...

  5. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  6. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  7. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...

  8. Phase II Research and Development of the Manufacturing Systems for Muscadine Grape Extracts and Nutraceutical Products

    SBC: Jacob W. Paulk Farms, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Muscadine grapes are indigenous to the warm, humid climate of the south. The GA Ag. Experiment Station and the USDA introduced improved varieties of muscadine cultivars which have been grown commercially for about 30 years. Muscadines are harvested from August to October; fresh muscadines are marketed for only 6-8 weeks per year. The predominant markets for muscadines include the fresh fruit marke ...

  9. Indoor Intensive Zero Exchange Shrimp Production

    SBC: MAGNOLIA SHRIMP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Development of effective marine RAS systems will be beneficial to both large-scale commercial aquaculture, and small farm/niche market aquaculture, since these systems can be employed to raise a wide range of species. In effect, using an RAS type system allows almost any type of culturing environment to be created, since the water is recycled and can be recycled completely only adding water to rep ...

  10. Predictive Modeling of the Engineered Wood Properties Using Genetic Algorithms with Distributed Data Fusion

    SBC: Microbial Insights, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem: The U.S. forest products industry contributed $406 billion to the U.S. economy and employed 2,140,399 people in 2002. Currently the forest products industry is facing unprecedented competition from international imports and high wood costs. In 2003, the engineered wood panel sector produced 64.3 billion square feet of panels of which wood waste ranged from 3% to 9%. Reducing ...
