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. 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 ...

  2. Phage mediated detection of Bacillus anthracis on deliberately contaminated fresh foods

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The nations food supply is particularly vulnerable to a bioterrorist attack. Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of anthrax, is a Category A pathogen that is considered a high priority biological weapon. Gastrointestinal anthrax is caused by the ingestion of B. anthracis contaminated foods or liquids. B. anthracis spores, which are the infectious form of the disease, are extremely resistant to ...

  3. Highly Efficient Luminaires for Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture businesses in northern "climatically challenged" regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and carbon dioxide in a hydroponics environment.Pr ...

  4. A New Nano Based Real-Time Aflatoxin Detector Phase II

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Aflatoxin was discovered in groundnut meal which killed over 10,000 turkeys in England. Poultry are extremely sensitive to aflatoxin B1 with turkeys being more sensitive than chickens. Later research discovered that poultry are the most susceptible food animal species to the toxic effects of aflatoxin. Based on epidemiological data and knowledge of liver biochemistry it is suggested that humans fa ...

  5. Autonomous Airborne Chemical/Biological Cloud Detection Sensor

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082011

    Detection of chemical and biological warfare agents in a real-world setting is an increasingly urgent problem. Many of the current state-of-the-art sensors are aqueous based and require large biomolecules, such as antibodies, to achieve binding of the target molecule and subsequent reporting of the binding event. These technical hurdles are a drawback when considering deployment of these technol ...
