  1. Delivery of nematicides to control plant parasitic nematodes by using Tobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus as a nanocarrier

    SBC: BIOPRODEX INC            Topic: 82

    We have developed a bioinspired nanoparticle technology using the coat protein (CP) assemblies ofTobacco mild green mosaic tobamovirus (TMGMV) to deliver nematicides to roots reduce dosageand improve soil mobility efficacy and safety. The CP's zwitterionic nature allows the loading andrelease of nematicides. The TMGMV-delivered nematicides (TDN) are efficacious againstCaenorhabditis elegans in liq ...

  3. On Demand Nitrate Production for Fertilizers

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Luna is developing a new catalytic membrane reactor technology to produce nitrates for fertilizerwith less energy cost and environmental impact than the conventional industrial methods. Theconventional approach to industrially producing nitrogenous fertilizers helps feed about half of theworld's population but is energy inefficient and requires extensive infrastructure. Together theconventional Ha ...

  7. Precocious puberty in Seriola rivoliana: induction of early maturation to accelerate selective breeding outcomes in high-value finfish

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 87

    Aquaculture expansion is a global imperative to address food security. Slow maturation of highlydesirable marine carnivorous finfish species is a major hindrance in the pursuit of geneticimprovement through selective breeding. Female Seriola (yellowtail) take four years to reachmaturity.The goal of this work is to identify methods of inducing precocious puberty in juvenile S.rivoliana.Phase I incl ...

  8. Precision Time-to-Harvest Forecasting of Specialty Crops

    SBC: GEOVISUAL TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 813

    Specialty Crop production margins are eroded by input costs impacts of weather pests anddiseases and market price fluctuations. Producers routinely overproduce to hedge against lossesfrom environmental impacts and ensure sufficient supply to meet retail account demand furtherreducing their average margins. If they had greater certainty in advance of how much they willproduce and when it will be ha ...
