  3. 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. 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 ...

  6. Microwave Radiation as a Pesticide Alternative for Stored-Products

    SBC: Micro-grain, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Concerns of the U.S. government over the imapct of pesticides on human health and the environment have prompted a search for alternatives for the control of insects in stored products. The proposed project will reassess the economics and practicability of using high-power microwave radiation as an alternative means to control insects in stored-products. Preliminary experiments at a frequency of ...

  7. Development of Automated Pig Weighing

    SBC: Osborne Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Raising pigs has become a specialized agribusiness. Pork producers have a desire to improve their efficiency of production in a cost effective manner. One tool to accomplish this is knowing the weight of the pig as it grows. This knowledge provides greater assistance in managing the feeding program as well as avoiding financial penalties when marketing. Feed costs account for 60% of the cost p ...

  8. GENETIC CONTROL OF GLYCOALKALOIDS IN POTATOES

    SBC: Small Potatoes, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Glycoalkaloids are natural plant compounds, normally harmless at low levels, but potentially harmful to animals at high levels. A major problem for the European starch potato industry is the high levels of glycoalkaloids concentrated in the potato waste stream. Traditionally this potato waste is fed to animals, but the high levels of glycoalkaloids in the waste solids reduces their usefulness as f ...

  9. Good Natured Food Campus- An Economic and Cultural Engine for the NorthSide Regeneration Plan

    SBC: RAINBOW ORGANIC FARMS CO            Topic: 812

    A vastly under-served community, located in an impoverished, 1,500-acre tract in the city of St. Louis, Missouri, is in dire need of increased accessibility to nutritious food. Most of the buildings are torn down, decayed, and abandoned. There are no grocery stores selling nutritious, local, and fresh foods; it is very much a food desert. However, a great opportunity to enrich the lives of this co ...

  10. Development of a Sorghum Doubled Haploid Breeding System

    SBC: HEARTLAND PLANT INNOVATIONS            Topic: 82

    Sorghum acres in the United States and around the world are declining. If this trend is to be reversed, new tools for sorghum crop improvement are needed. Sorghum is a naturally drought-tolerant, heat-resistant crop that can play an important role in meeting ever-increasing global needs for food, feed, and fuel. However, sorghum lags behind other crops in making progress on breeding for yield incr ...
