    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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. A coupled oil extraction/distillation-biochar system to utilize Eastern red cedar in value-added products and provide environmental benefits

    SBC: BLUE EARTH LLC            Topic: 81

    Woody encroachment of grasslands has led to wildfires that have recently destroyed homes and adversely affected rural communities. Eastern red cedar (ERC) is a major culprit in woody expansion and causes habitat fragmentation for upland bird and other wildlife species, with adverse effects on infiltration of precipitation, induced changes to plant species composition that degrade habitat and reduc ...

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Today's elementary teachers must address the needs of an increasingly diverse population of students--ranging from those who enter their classrooms reading at many years below grade level to those who are many years above grade level. This discrepancy is often the most profound in rural school districts. This impacts teachers' abilities to help students acquire strong skills in reading--fo ...
