The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

Download all award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

The award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Novel method for improving algae harvesting

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 87

    Algae are one of the most, if not the most, productive biomass crops known and have a photosynthetic efficiency almost twice that of the most productive terrestrial crop, sugarcane. However, algae are not without disadvantages relative to terrestrial crops, and do require their own novel technical solutions. Characteristically, microalgae are aquatic, very small (1 to 10 micron diameter), very dil ...

  2. Larval nutrition strategies for improved tuna hatchery production

    SBC: Pacific Planktonics            Topic: 87

    Tuna are among the most highly valued fish worldwide. Due to this value and high demand, tuna are being fished beyond sustainable levels in many parts of the world. Replacing or supplementing wild catch with hatchery raised tuna makes sense, but this is technically difficult with current technology. Hatchery efforts since the 1970s have made progress in capture and spawning of tuna to provide eggs ...

  3. New Technology for Breeding Superior Tetraploid and Triploid Eastern Oysters

    SBC: 4CS BREEDING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    We presently manage the production of tetraploid oyster broodstock which is used by hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard to produce triploid oysters(triploid oysters are sterile and grow faster and larger than diploid oysters). Our tetraploid broodstock is not resistant to Dermo, a disease that frequently kills many eastern oysters. The research supported in this project will allow us to produce ...

  4. Novel Dewatering Method for Cost Effective Harvesting of Microalgae Biomass

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 87

    A novel process is proposed which will allow continuous dewatering of algae growth culture in a device which is robust (no moving parts) and readily scalable through process parallelization. The process makes use of innovative passive (low energy input) flow control and does not need any chemical pre-treatment or external heat energy input. Microalgal cultivation affords the promise of renewable p ...

  5. Production and Marketing of a Novelty Specialty Pepper, Capsicum baccatum

    SBC: WILSON'S CEDAR POINT FARMS LLC            Topic: 812

    Certain types of specialty peppers may be desired by chefs. Capsicum baccatum, a relative of peppers commonly grown in the U.S. A, is a diverse species; both wild and cultivated forms occur in South America. However, cultivation of C. baccatum outside of South America is rare, and little scientific information is available with regard to cultivation of these relatively primitive cultivars of peppe ...

  6. Environmental Management Systems using Renewable Energy

    SBC: SCENIC VALLEY FARM LLC            Topic: 812

    High tunnel agriculture has evolved from simplified growing systems that employ no electricity or heating mechanisms to semi-automated environments with electricity and auxiliary heat. Currently, however, no technology exists that fully monitors, automates, and manages a multiple high tunnel operation. In order to fully realize the potential of high tunnel production a relatively low cost, high-te ...

  7. Use of Hydroponic and LED Technology to Grow High Nutrient Lettuce, Spinach and Arugula in a Small, Urban, High Density, Indoor Farm

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the industrial northeast there is an under-fulfilled, year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers? markets since 1995. This project will use innovative hydroponic and LED technologies to study and verify if high nutrient, high quality greens can be grown cost effectively in small, urban, high density, indoo ...

  8. Marketing a New Paradigm in Goldenseal Product Standardization

    SBC: BOTANIPHARM, LLC            Topic: 812

    Industry attempts to standardize the biological effects of natural herbal products range from the age old practice of ritualistic harvest at specific times of the day and/or year to the contemporary method of selecting chemical compounds as makers then measuring the potency of the product proportional to the quantity of the marker, the "more is better" concept. However, while chemical marker analy ...

  10. Global Feed in 3-D: An Information Technology Product for Strategic Decision Making and Market Analysis

    SBC: INNOVOSOY            Topic: 812

    The Illinois Soybean Association and the USDA initiated and supported the original research project that produced the prototype Global Food in 3?D and underlies the proposed new product, Global Feed in 3?D. The expected user groups were small and mid?sized farmer leaders and allied analysts and stakeholders as a result of the research's original design and goals. The research outcome of this ...
