  1. Creating an Internet-Based Service for Merchandising Identity-Preserved Grains

    SBC: DefineX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    As agricultural acreage and production in South America and other low cost production areas continue to expand, U.S. producers must adopt new technology, streamline their already highly efficient production systems, and look for value-adding opportunities to diversify from the highly competitive commodity markets. Indeed, value-added agriculture promises to become increasingly important as new spe ...

  2. A Safer Class of Agricultural Nematicides Based on Natural Fatty Acid Products

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Plant parasitic nematodes are among the most important crop pathogens in the United States, causing an estimated $7-9 billion in lost yield annually. Traditional nematicides, including organophosphates, are under severe regulatory pressure because of toxological and environmental concerns. The purpose of this project is to develop a new, safer nematode control agent for U.S. growers.

  3. Use of a Plant Universal Molecular Recognition Library for Root Knot Nematode Resistance

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Plant parasitic nematodes annually cause damage in excess of $8 billion in the U.S. and $78 billion worldwide. The goal of this research is to generate crops, such as cotton and tomato, with broad-spectrum, season-long resistance to root knot nematode.

  4. Soil Inhibition Resistant Mutants of Taq DNA Polymerase

    SBC: DNA POLYMERASE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Gene detection in soil using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is nearly impossible due to the inhibitory affects of the components of soil, including humic acid. Currently, the DNA must be extracted from the soil in order to perform PCR. The DNA extraction/purification step is expensive and time consuming. We intend to develop commercially available PCR enzymes that will enable PCR to detect pa ...

  5. Verifying the Feasibility of Marketing Heritage Organic Pork

    SBC: Heritage Acres Foods, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing demand for organic Berkshire pork products by United States consumers. These consumers demand that the pork come from farmers who supply hogs that are organically grown, under humane production systems and are environmental stewards. Heritage Acres Foods, LLC, a company owned 100y small swine farmers, will examine the feasibility of producing, processing, and marketing organic B ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Intracellular delivery of nematicidal proteins

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a method to use cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) to carry bioactive proteins across cell membranes in plant parasitic nematodes. Multiple CPPs will be developed which cross nematode cell membranes when attached to a 15 kDa protein scaffold. This scaffold is the starting structure for future novel libraries (called ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Scaffold Technology for Effector Molecules (STEM): A Transgenic Platform for Agriculture

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will develop a novel enabling technology for transgenic solutions to agricultural problems. Scaffold Technology for Effector Molecules (STEM) will allow the generation of high-affinity bioactive proteins capable of selectively altering plant and plant pathogen gene product function. This project will generate and validate a ST ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Compacting Fly Ash to Make Bricks

    SBC: Freight Pipeline Company            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project has the objective of conducting R&D needed for commercialization of new technology to make bricks using fly ash, which is a byproduct or waste material generated at coal-fired power plants. Research conducted under Phase I demonstrated that the known freeze/thaw problem of fly ash bricks can be solved using air entrainment. This proce ...

  9. STTR Phase I: Stabilization of a Protein Toxin- An Essential Step in the Commercialization of an Innovative Method for Controlling Zebra Mussels

    SBC: PCT            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I research project will develop a method for long-term stabilization of this highly specific biopesticide for control of zebra mussels. This project represents an industry/research institute collaboration to commercialize a novel microbial agent, pseudomonas fluorescens strain CL0145A (Pf-CL0145A). Pf-CL0145A cells do not kill zebra ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Fire-Retardant Phase Change Materials from Fats and Oils

    SBC: Renewable Alternatives, LLC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will use fats and oils to make phase-change materials (PCM) with fire-retardant properties, so they can be used in clothing and around hot objects. Phase change materials are a class of materials that use phase changes (e.g., melting) to absorb or release relatively large amounts of latent heat at relatively constant temperat ...
