  3. MEASURING RESISTANCE OF INSECTS TO BT TOXINS WITH HYDRATEABLE MEAL PADS

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the summer of 1998 over 2.8 million acres of farmland in the Southern U.S. was planted in genetically engineered cotton expressing a gene derived from the bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). This Bt gene codes for production of a protein that is toxic to some of the most important lepidopteran pests of U.S. cotton. The future expansion of this new technology on more cotton acreage and in ot ...

    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 ...

  6. Low Cost Fuels Production from Agricultural Wastes Using Chemical Regeneration

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Bioconversion of lignocellulosic wastes to fuels and chemicals requires pretreatment to enhance conversion and reduce overall costs. Texas A&M University (TAMU) has tested a lime pretreatment process that is effective and low-cost. A significant element of the pretreatment cost is the lime regeneration system. To reduce costs, Altex has identified the Low Cost Lime Regenerator (LCLR). The LCLR is ...

  7. REMOTE SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING USING WEB BROWSERS FOR IMPROVED IRRIGATION DECISION MAKING

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to field demonstrate a web browser based decision support system (DSS) providing real-time remote monitoring of various sensors placed at the root depth, and compiling weather station data to provide growers with important information for making irrigation decisions. Key features of the system are the ability to access multiple remote sites that contain monitoring equipment, using softw ...

  9. NEAR FIELD EFFECT TONERS FOR IMPROVED DEINKING PERFORMANCE

    SBC: AVEKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Paper recycling continues to increase in the United States, with public support and legislative mandates helping boost recycling of all paper grades. Office waste paper is a significant source of high grade paper fiber for recycling, but is currently underutilized, due to the challenges of fully removing xerographic and laser printer toner. These so called *laser inks* are designed to fuse to the ...
