  1. Improving the efficiency of feed use in the cattle industry

    SBC: 3 C CATTLE FEEDERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    While the initial application will be for cattle, the systems developed in this project will be applicable to feeders used for other domestic species including sheep, goats, and domestic hogs. In addition, the systems developed could be used to control gates or other access for animals or objects that are tagged with radio frequency identification systems. This project is designed to increase the ...

  2. Evaluation of Jatropha curcas by-products


    Biofuels have a strategic value in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and the ability to increase our energy security. Growing and processing oil-rich biomass into biofuel in the U.S. would contribute to reduce this dependence. The objective of this project is to evaluate the conversion of oilseeds that could be grown in the U.S. and U.S. territories into a substitute of hydrocarbon fuel. One ...

  3. Forest pest risk analysis in dynamic landscapes

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: N/A

    Forest insect pests cause significant economic and ecological damage every year. Dramatically increased pest activity in recent years suggests that changing climate conditions will inflate the uncertainty associated with pest risk assessments. Advances in forest pest risk analysis methodology are needed to allow managers to better explore the consequences and value of alternative management scenar ...

  4. PCR Based Diagnostic for Species Identification of Red Snapper and Other Commercial Snapper Species


    Red snapper, Lutjanus campechanus, is one of the most economically important fish species in the Gulf of Mexico. While there are numerous species of snapper marketed worldwide, in the United States L. campechanus is known as the true red snapper and the only species that can legally be labeled simply "Red Snapper". Another snapper species, Lutjanus purpureus, which is harvested in the South Atlant ...

  5. Rapid enzyme-based assays to detect banned substances in food


    It is important to test the food supply for known toxic or banned substances which can impinge public safety. While a number of high-throughput tests have been developed to screen the food supply for higher molecular weight banned substances, it has been difficult to develop methods to comprehensively screen the food supply for low molecular weight banned substances such as histamine or pentachlor ...

  6. New Crop Opportunity for Semiarid Dryland Production Systems

    SBC: BLUE SUN BIODIESEL LLC            Topic: N/A

    Situation More than 63% of the petroleum we need daily is imported, with steady increases projected. Our national security is threatened by this growing dependence on foreign oil, and we need to reverse the trend. A key segment of the nation's farmers in the Central High Plains region of the western U.S. (with access to nearly 6 million marginal dryland acres) can play an important role in this ef ...

  7. MWIR Spatial Light Modulators for Hyperspectral Image Projectors


    The proposed effort is to build a high resolution, high speed spatial light modulator (SLM) to be used in infrared (IR) spectral projectors. An IR spectral projector produces programmable spectra by dispersing light onto a programmable array, currently digital micromirror devices (DMDs), which either transmit or block selected components of the light. the light is then recombined to form complex s ...

  8. Complete Plant Growth Medium for Construction of Golf Greens

    SBC: CHK GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will increase the water and fertilizer use efficiency to create an environmentally friendly green golf courses. Successful completion of the proposed innovation by ChK Group, Inc., is expected to validate our preliminary findings and help the company establish strategic partnerships with manufacturers of golf-green accessories and golf-course owners/managers. The proposed innovation w ...

  9. Lactation Modeling Tools and Information Base for Dairy Herd Management and Research


    MilkBot(R) will provide enabling technology for a wide variety of methods applicable to dairy research and management. Increasing the sensitivity of our ability to detect changes in milk production may lower the sample size needed for research projects, or improve the ability to detect a response. In field situations the same tools will help in detection and quantification of response to intention ...

  10. Plant Expression of Cellulase for Biomass Ethanol Production

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 provides a federal mandate to increase the domestic supply of clean, renewable energy sources. The EIS Act amends the 2005 Renewable Fuels Standard by increasing the goal for renewable fuels use to 9 billion gallons in 2008, 15.2 billion gallons in 2012, and culminating in 36 billion gallons by 2022. Achieving these ambitious goals will be difficult ...
