  2. Poly(Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer, and inhibits weed growth, fungus infection and insec ...

  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. Recreation Trail Motor Vehicle Barrier- Protecting Rural Environments and Providing Access to People Using Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Recreation trails are a key component of the social, economic and health of rural communities. People with mobility impairments are often excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs), to control livestock or wildlife, as an access point in a fenced area, or for a variety of other reasons. Many p ...

  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. An Innovative Cost-Effective Active Warning System for Improved Safety at Rural Railroad Crossings

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 70% of U.S. highway-railroad crossing accident fatalities occur at passive rural railroad crossings. Federal and State highway authorities are searching for effective, safe and low-cost active signal devices for these crossings. The Federal Highway Administration estimates that it would cost more than $14 billion to upgrade all passive grade crossings with conventional active railroad cr ...

  9. Kiln Phosphoric Acid Project (Second Phase I Project)

    SBC: JDC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Farmers and industrial markets require liquid phosphate products at competitive prices. Current production technology has environmental concerns, restictive ore requirements, low overall yields, and high cost. This project carries out commercial devlopment activities for the Kiln Phosphoric Acid Process for producing liquid phosphoric acid product which promises higher overall yields, less restric ...

  10. Development of a High-Throughput IVF System for Swine

    SBC: Vitae, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Polyspermy remains the primary limiting factor for successful porcine embryo production in vitro. It has recently been demonstrated that fertilization of porcine oocytes performed in a microfluidic device led to a significant reduction in polyspermy over conventional IVF, while retaining overall penetration rates. The purpose of this study is to determine the mechanism by which the microchannel en ...
