  2. Non-Corrosive Propionate Based Road Deicer

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Develop a fermentation process capable of economically converting agricultural by-products (biomass wastes containing sugars and starches) to a biodegradable, non-corrosive road deicer. The process developed in this work will support energy conservation and sound environmental management policies by enhancing the utilization of byproducts from agricultural operations in the production of a value-a ...

  4. GPS-Based Animal Control System

    SBC: AgriTech Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase II proposal to continue the work begun by AgriTech Electronics, LC (AgriTech) on a GPS-based livestock control system. This system will exclude animals from areas, or contain them within defined boundaries, where it is impractical or inefficient to build fence to achieve this objective. These needs arise in a variety of contexts, including the exclusion of livestock from riparian a ...

  5. Plastics Recycling: Using Agricultural Residues to Improve Performance II

    SBC: Agro-Plastics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase II SBIR is to commercialize the process to use wheat straw fibers as a means to improve the characteristics of commingled plastic. The Phase I research proved the feasibility of using wheat straw as a filler for commingled plastic. However, in order to commercialize the process, hurdles still need to be overcome in order to have a In order to reach this goal the following ob ...

  7. PRECISE INJECTION OF NH3 USING PULSE-WIDTH MODULATION METERING

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anhydrous ammonia (NH3), a heavily used nitrogen fertilizer, is a volatile gas which flashes at -40 F. It is handles as pressurized liquid and difficult to meter accurately and dispense. Its low cost, due to inexpensive energy, has encouraged wasteful over-application rather than investment in currently costly and ineffective application control systems. Ammonia costs will increase with energy cos ...

  8. Flow Control and Operation Monitoring System for Individual Spray Nozzles

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses the increasing demands and need for precise control and reliability in agrochemical application. The ultimate goal of this project is a single-nozzle monitoring and control technology and device. The device will allow individual nozzle resolution on flow rate and spray droplet size. The device will also provide, either in conjunction with control or simply as a driver-alert ...

  9. A Soil Sampling Mechanism for On-the-Go Analysis and Mapping of pH and Other Properties

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of GPS-aided technology to apply inputs site-specifically has a significant potential to improve the use of fertilizers, lime, and other materials. One of the main factors limiting the effectiveness of this technology is the problem of accurately assessing the input requirements of the field. In the most common approach, soil samples are acquired on a 2.5 acre grid pattern, sent to a labor ...

  10. In-Situ Application of Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy to Soils

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent environment developments have created increased demand for in-field measurement of soil constituents. Soil carbon measurements are needed to study carbon sequestration and measurements of soil nitrogen could be used to manage and minimize the leaching of nitrates into the ground water. Near infrared reflectance spectroscopy is an optical method that has shown good results in the laboratory ...
