  1. Assess Marketing Opportunities for High Protein, Low Ash Fish Meals Made from Fish Scrap

    SBC: Bio-Oregon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Bio-Oregon is developing an innovative process to convert seafood waste into hydrolyzed and non-hydrolyzed high protein, low ash fish meals. Successful introduction of unique fish meals made from seafood processing waste into competitive markets requires strategic marketing. Businesses developing new products need a marketing plan to link the activities of technological deve ...

  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. Novel Affordable Composites from Renewable Resources

    SBC: Cara Plastics            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Composites today are based on petroleum-based polymers and energy intensive fiber glass. Our dependency on petroleum results in carbon dioxide emissions, which can be harmful to the environment. The purpose of this project is to prepare and test specific resins from natural oils for their compatibility with natural fibers, and the properties necessary for structural applicat ...

  5. Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cerea ...

  6. Development of Effective, Economical Killing Stations for New World Fruit Fly Management and Eradication

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The potential impact of widespread establishment in the US of Mexican Fruit fly is estimated at $927.75 million dollars. Rhagoletis species are key pests of important deciduous fruit and nut crops (apple, cherry, blueberry and walnut). This project will develop an effective killing station that will provide a sustainable alternative to insecticide cover sprays aimed at tephr ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Suppression of Plant Diseases, Nematode, and Arthropod Pests by Vermicomposts and Weed Seeds and Human Pathogens

    SBC: Oregon Soil Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Organic wastes create environmental problems and often require landfill disposal. Research at Oregon Soil Corporation and their academic partners at the Ohio State University has shown that organic wastes can be broken down into valuable soil amendments or plant growth media, called vermicomposts, by earthworms using a range of technologies. Vermicomposts have dramatic effec ...
