  3. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  7. Enhancement of Early Development in Turkeys by in Ovo Feeding

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    Approximately 5% of hatchlings do not survive the critical post-hatch period because of limited body reserves. Many survivors exhibit stunted growth, leg problems, inefficient feed utilization, reduced disease resistance, or poor meat yield. This poult quality problem has been calculated to be worth approximately $71 million and $142 million annually to the US and global turkey industry respective ...

  8. Developing Medicinally Used Echinacea Cultivars by Intra- and Interspecific Hybridization- Phase II

    SBC: Gaia Herbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cultivation of Echinacea has gained worldwide interest in recent years due to its non-specific immunomodulatory activity in humans. However, Echinacea species have not been genetically improved for medicinal use. This project is to develop genetically improved Echinacea cultivars for medicinal use. The new cultivars will produce higher yield of biomass and bioactive phytochemicals than the types c ...

  9. Evaluating Oosporein and Its Analogs from the Mycoparasite Aphanocladium album for Managing Rust Diseases

    SBC: PhytoMyco Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Low molecular weight metabolites produced by the rust mycoparasite, Aphanocladium album, can convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores. The teliospore-inducing factor (TIF) has been isolated, identified and demonstrated in proof-of concept experiments to convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores of the oat rust fungus, Puccinia coronata. During Phase II, we ...
