  1. Foam in Place Mulching Method for Specialty Crops

    SBC: C And A Country Gardens            Topic: N/A

    Frothed foams will be prepared and applied in place as low cost mulches for weed control in small plot specialty crop operations. Foam mixes will be formulated from degradable natural polymers including gelatins and starches. Fillers will be common cellulosic mulch ingredients such as crushed seed hulls and corncobs. A conventional portable spray tank modified with an impeller blade will mechan ...

  3. DUAL ENERGY X-RAY TECHNIQUE FOR FOOD PROCESSING MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO EXPLOIT DUAL ENERGY X-RAY MEASUREMENT TECH- NIQUE TO QUANTITATIVELY DETERMINE THE PRO PORTIONS OF TWO DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN A FOOD PROCESSING LINE AT CONVEYOR BELT SPEED. THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH A SIMPLECONVENTIONAL X-RAY INSPECTION SYSTEM IS THAT IT REQUIRES KNOWN MATERIAL THICKNESS BETWEEN THE X-RAY SOURCE AND DETEC-TOR ARRAY. OFTEN IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN KNOWN OR DEFINITIVE ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PREDICTING THE RATE OF SOIL WATER MOVEMENT AND THE IMPACT OFAGRI-CHEMICALS ON WATER RESOURCES IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO MANAGING AGRICULTURE, FOR OPTIMIZING PRODUCTIVITY AND MINIMIZING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. SOPHISTICATED MODELS FOR MAKING SUCH PREDICTIONS ARE AVAILABLE, BUT DATA ON SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES ARE DIFFICULT AND OFTEN EXPENSIVE TO OBTAIN. IN FACT, AT DEPTHS BELOW THE ROOT ZONE THERE IS ...

  5. Tangential X-Ray CT Scanner System for Log Scanning

    SBC: Omega International Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an affordable yet production speed Tangential x-ray CT scanner system for an inside 3-dimensional look of the logs. The present x-ray CT scanners are designed for medical or other research applications and are not suitable for production environment generally found in forest product mills. The prior experimental work by many scientists in the forest product industries have ...

  7. Production of an Effective Low Cost Drilling Fluid Additive from Waste Sugar Beet Pulp

    SBC: R. L. Clampitt And            Topic: N/A

    This project will investigate a cost-effective method of producing a new oil and gas drilling fluid additive from spent sugar beet pulp, a by-product and waste material from the sugar beet processing industry. The product has the potential of replacing other drilling fluid additives, (a) asbestos, which is an effective additive but which is no longer used because of environmental concerns, (b) CM ...

  9. An Ultrasonic Sensor System For Bacterially

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A major problem in the hardwood lumber industry is the loss of production as the result of theformation of splits, checks, or ring failure during kiln drying. A primary cause of these drying defectsis the degradation of the green lumber as a result of bacterial infection. The optimum drying scheduleis dependent on the initial quality of the green lumber. Unfortunately, it is currently not possi ...

  10. Computer-Based Grading for Conducting Interactive Internet Cattle Auctions

    SBC: Wilson Computer Services            Topic: N/A

    The object of this research project is to develop an interactive, video/sound, pc-based auction for stocker/feeder cattle using the Internet. Current mechanisms of video-tape/satellite/telephone-conferencing auctions favor the large volume producer who can generate 50,000 pound, trailer-load lots of cattle consisting of similar weight, grade, and sex (hereafter referred to as "load-lots"). The m ...
