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. Recruitment of Panulirus argus Spiny Lobster to Submerged Cages off Puerto Rico, and its Implications for the Development of a New, Sustainable and Profitable Aquaculture Operation

    SBC: Snapperfarm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Spiny lobsters (Panulirus argus) have been successfully mated and spawned in captivity. However, researchers have had difficulty rearing large numbers of phyllosoma larvae through the many stages of the year long complex cycle. The alternative for mariculture is to bypass the larviculture stage and collect the pureruli from the wild as they drift to near shore habitats. The traditional methods ...

  2. Flow Control and Operation Monitoring System for Individual Spray Nozzles

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agricultural spray equipment operators typically cannot monitor all nozzles along the boom. Clogged or malfunctioning nozzles produce undesirable spraying results. This project is designed to lead directly to a useful product, namely, a single-nozzle monitoring unit for agricultural spray applications. The monitoring capabilities of the system will allow more efficient, reli ...

  4. Sunlight Independent Crop Canopy Reflectance Sensor

    SBC: Holland Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Over application of nitrogen fertilizer on agricultural and commecial landscapes has resulted in contamination of ground and surface waters. This project proposes to develop a new sensor technolgy that will help reduce the amount of N applied to crops and turf by determining the amount of N needed by the plant via the plants reflectance characteristics.

  6. A Soil Sampling System for On-the-Go Analysis and Mapping of pH and Other Properties

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: As crop growers begin to use GPS technology to manage the variability in their fields, they are seeking ways to assess the variability of physical and chemical properties more accurately and cost-effectively. In the most common approach, soil samples are acquired on a 2.5 acre grid pattern. Soil properties often have greater spatial variability than is identified with this a ...

  8. Nano- and Micro-Encapsulation of Food Additives and Agrochemicals (SBIR Phase I)

    SBC: LNKCHEMSOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: General methods to produce uniform capsules with well-defined and controllable shell thickness and diameter, especially at the nano- and micro-scale, are in great demand for controlled and timed release of drugs, agrochemicals, nutraceuticals, and probiotics. The proposed technique should in principle allow encapsulation of all such types of valuable agents, e.g., agrochemic ...

  9. A New Application for Finely Ground Rubber in the Control and Abatement of Odors Emitted from Livestock Manure Storage Structures

    SBC: Tire Recycling Centers USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Most livestock manure storage structures are open-air earthen and formed structures or under-slat structures for liquid manure storage. This manure storage system allows for seasonal manure application on harvested or small growing crops, but has the disadvantage of exposing odors or gaseous emissions to production workers, neighbors, and the environment. Previous research h ...

  10. Extraction of Inulin From Dried Chicory Root

    SBC: U. S. Chicory, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Chicory is an excellent source of inulin, a fructose polymer with important nutrition and health characteristics. Currently, chicory is grown primarily in Europe. In 2001, U.S. Chicory constructed a drying facility in Scottsbluff, NE and processed 950 acres of chicory, the first commercial operation in North America. Although dried chicory is suitable for pet foods, purified ...
