  1. Goat Browsing to Enhance Economic Opportunity in the Loess Hills

    SBC: AGREN INC            Topic: N/A

    The invasion of woody vegetation into native plant communities is a growing problem on many of the Nation's rangelands, resulting in the loss of pastureland and the need to make alterations in livestock management. The Loess Hills of Western Iowa have been severely impacted by ERC and other encroaching woody vegetation, resulting in the loss of native prairie and a threat to the economic and socia ...

  5. 3D Analysis of MR-imaged Articular Cartilage


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoarthritis and articular cartilage injuries are very common, typically causing pain, swelling and reduced mobility leading to functional impairment. The treatment cost for patients suffering from these conditions are massive with an estimated annual economic cost of $65 billion in the US alone. Magnetic resonance imaging facilitates non-invasive imagin ...

  6. Development of Solanum glaucophyllum as a Source of Vitamin D for Laying Hens


    Egg breakage and cracking is a major economical problem for the US poultry industry which can affect up to 10% of the eggs produced. The resulting approximately 500 million dollars in lost revenue to producers is a cost ultimately borne by consumers. To minimize damaged eggs, producers have attempted to increase calcium in the ration but have had limited success because the hen's ability to utiliz ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Implementation of Sex Pheromone-Based Systems to Suppress Populations of Soybean Aphids

    SBC: MSTRS Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop sex pheromone-based techniques for monitoring, mass trapping, and mating disruption of the soybean aphid. Since its first appearance in North America, infestations of the newly invasive soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura, have continued to cause a significant soybean yield loss due to either direct feeding d ...

  9. Feasibility of Heat Exchanger Designs to Preheat Grain Using Dryer Exhaust Air

    SBC: Shivvers Manufacturing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Commercially available grain dryers currently available consume 1800 to 3000 Btu of energy to evaporate one pound of water out of the grain whereas the theoretical requirement is 1100 Btu. For both environmental and economic reasons it would be very beneficial if one can design and produce a grain dryer with dramatically improved efficiencies. We are exploring possible methods to achieve this goal ...

  10. Microminiature Sensor System for FORCENet

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: N04181

    A microminiature radio sensor system may be decomposed into antenna, RF, and digital subsystems, plus support elements (power, case, datalink, storage, etc.). The difficult aspect of the requirements is the simultaneous requirement for small size, wide frequency coverage, low power consumption, dynamic range, and integral datalink. Most are classical tradeoffs for radio system designs, but newer ...
