  1. Development of a Sorghum Doubled Haploid Breeding System

    SBC: HEARTLAND PLANT INNOVATIONS            Topic: 82

    Sorghum is a drought- and heat-tolerant crop that can help meet global needs for food, feed, and fuel. However, sorghum lags behind other crops in making progress in breeding for increased yield and improved traits. Heartland Plant Innovations is developing a robust system for producing and utilizing Sorghum Doubled Haploids (SDHs), a non-transgenic approach that greatly accelerates plant breeding ...

  3. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: Smart Vision Works International LLC            Topic: 813

    In order for America to remain competitive in the world market in agriculture production and processing it must continue to innovate and create technologies that decrease the cost of food production. If America can do so, it maintains the ability to produce high quality products. Sorting and grading is an expensive and time consuming part of agriculture production and decreasing its cost through t ...

  4. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000674

    The sodium battery using beta-alumina solid electrolyte is one of the most promising grid-scale electrical energy storage technologies that can balance the short-duration variability in renewable generation. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The safety i ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Large-Scale Production and Field Testing of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fungal inocula are a critical and economically-significant component of a technology that exploits the abilities of white-rot wood-decay fungi to degrade pollutants in soil. This technology involves mixing of a fungal inoculum with contaminated soil and placing this mixture in an aerated pile. Current standard inoculum production techniques are expensive, involving the field ...

  9. 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 ...
