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. Biotechnology for Commercial Production of Edible Nostoc as a New Aquatic Crop Plant

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Nostoc commune is an edible cyanobacterium forming the spherical macrocolony, which is used as a potent herbal medicine and dietary supplement. Due to its nutraceutical and pharmacological value, the N. commune has received increasing attention, and the market demand has grown drastically during the last decade. However, low yield and unstable quality caused by inadequate pr ...

  2. Commercialization of Versazyme, A Keratinase Product, for Use in Poultry Food

    SBC: BIORESOURCE INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The small intestine of the newly hatched chick and is immature and undergoes significant morphological, biochemical and physiological changes during the first 10 days post hatch. After this initial period, the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of the young monogastric animals becomes more capable of digesting and utilizing more nutrients. Chicks and poults during the first few da ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Field Enhanced Capacitive Transducers for Greenhouse Environmental Control

    SBC: Horizon Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The horticulture industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Humidity is the most important and difficult to control environmental parameter in greenhouses. It affects the quality, yield and health of plants. Environmental control systems with distributed humidity and condensation sensors are desired to manage dynamic environments to enhance crop yield, prevent disease, and ...

  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. Feasibility of an Innate Immunity-Based Test to Monitor the Health of Channel Catfish

    SBC: Norcarex Bio Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Disease is the major cause of economic losses in channel catfish aquaculture. Many if not most disease epidemics are precipitated by stress. Having a means to rapidly and accurately detect the level of stress in catfish populations would be a highly valuable tool since it would warn the farmer when management changes need to be implemented before a catastrophic disease loss ...

  10. Mycoparasite Metabolites for Managing Rust Diseases

    SBC: PhytoMyco Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: If teliospores could be prematurely induced by the mycoparasite metabolite treatment, the rust disease cycle would be curtailed, thus blocking the spread of disease and lessening economic losses. The chemistry of the teliospore-inducing compound (TIC) and analogs would facilitate the control of cereal rusts. Knowledge of chemical structure of the TIC would also permit synthe ...
