The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. Improving the efficiency of feed use in the cattle industry

    SBC: 3 C CATTLE FEEDERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    3-C Cattle Feeder, in collaboration with the New Product Development Center [NPDC] at OSU will develop enhanced prototypes to be tested in the field. The doors to the feeder will be controlled by an RFID reader which actuates a motor allowing the feeder doors to open. For safety, the doors are fail-safed using an infrared safety switch to prevent the doors from closing on a cow or calf, while thei ...

  3. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: WILSON, LYNN B            Topic: N/A

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Cobia Production Using Novel Low Salinity RAS Technology

    SBC: VIRGINIA COBIA FARMS            Topic: N/A

    This application describes the Phase I commercialization by Virginia Cobia Farms (VCF) of a combination of unique technologies including proprietary technology involving molecular salinity nutrient sensors in fish, use of intensive land based recirculation systems (RAS), novel dietary fish feed formulations as well as commercial production scale application of ARS scientists focused on development ...

  8. Ammonia Removal and Recovery System Integrated with Anaerobic Digestion for Mitigating Air and Water Quality Impacts of Animal Operations

    SBC: AEB ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N/A

    Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) continue to experience every increasing pressure regarding nutrient overloads and air and water environmental concerns on their farms. Additionally the producers are subject to every growing and skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. This USDA SBIR Phase I project aims to demonstrate an innovative technology that recovers ammonia nitrogen from CAFO a ...

  9. Research and Development of a Simulation-Based Strategic Planning Tool for Water and Wastewater Resource Management

    SBC: VIASIM            Topic: N/A

    The primary benefits of SimBLOX to the public are that it helps private and government organizations become better stewards of taxpayers' dollars and it protects our natural resources. The proposed research and resulting proof-of-concept model for this Phase I effort has enormous potential to assist water management agencies in drafting and implementing more effective policies and practices relate ...

  10. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...
