Finance needed to transform coffee pulping factory into a climate smart farm.

Finance needed to transform coffee pulping factory into a climate smart farm.

This project involves 5 coffee pulping factories (all in Karatina) with 477,866 coffee bushes. The annual actual cherry production in 2013 was 910,902 kg, averaging 1.9 kg per coffee bush. The proposed initiative is to produce the coffee under certified organic production standards while accounting for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction within ...

C4 Plant Selective Herbicide - New approach to combat C4 weeds in arable crops

C4 Plant Selective Herbicide - New approach to combat C4 weeds in arable crops

"Weed infestations cause considerable crop yield losses worldwide. C4 weeds like Black-Grass, Cleavers, Green foxtail, Kochia and Barnyard Grass reduce yields of important C3 cereals such as rice, wheat, barley and oat. For example, Barnyard Grass, the most important weed species in rice, which is now found in over 60 countries ranging from North A ...

APPARATUS FOR DETECTING TYPES OF MIST AND VISIBILITY

APPARATUS FOR DETECTING TYPES OF  MIST AND  VISIBILITY

"So far, there is no differentiation between fog types available at the automatic stations. Solely visibility can be determined. The considerable novelty of the invention consists in the automatic differentiation of the mist types

Large-area Biofilm Sensor

Large-area Biofilm Sensor

Biofilms form in aquatic systems on nearly all surfaces and thus represent a part of the microbial community. Three dimensional structures develop from bacteria cells, extracellular polymer materials and particles. The colonization of a surface does not take place evenly but rather in a non-uniform manner. When electromagnetic waves with a waveleng ...

Biodegradable Oxidized Cellulose Esters

Biodegradable Oxidized Cellulose Esters

Background:

Cellulose is a common material used in numerous medical, veterinary and agricultural products. Oxidized cellulose is a biodegradable form of this product that suffers from a poor solubility in water and common organic solvents. Cellulose esters are more soluble in water and thus more commonly used as pharmaceutical excipients ...

Dispersal containment of engineered genotypes in transgenic plants

Dispersal containment of engineered genotypes in transgenic plants

 Reference: PD 08094The Problem:The unwanted dissemination of transgenic genotypes from one plant cultivar to another via pollen dispersal is a significant problem that often prevents field testing and consumer use of commercially-valuable genetically modified plants.The Technology Solution:Researchers at the University of Tennessee have developed ...

Novel construct designs for effective use of trans-acting small interference RNA (tasiRNA) technology

Novel construct designs for effective use of trans-acting small interference RNA (tasiRNA) technology

tasiRNA-Technology for Gene Silencing in Plants It is estimated that by 2050, there will be at least 9 billion people in the world to feed. As the population increases, the agricultural industry will be expected to find ways to feed the population with fewer resources and less arable land. Thus, it is necessary to research and develop crops with ...

Spray - Spray formulation of endophytes for crop protection against herbivorous insects

Spray - Spray formulation of endophytes for crop protection against herbivorous insects

"Herbivorous insects can cause significant damages in agriculture, resulting in reduced crop yields, quality and profit for most of the crops worldwide. These damages can be controlled by the application of insecticides. Owing to a considerable number of reasons people and policy call for a sustainable reduction of the use of chemica ...

IMPROVED FLOW CYTOMETER HARDWARE DESIGN AND SOFTWARE ANALYSIS PACKAGE

IMPROVED FLOW CYTOMETER HARDWARE DESIGN AND SOFTWARE ANALYSIS PACKAGE

BACKGROUND: Flow cytometry and cell sorting are well-established technologies that allow for rapid multiparametric analysis of cells on an individual basis, and also for separation of highly purified populations of cells. Because the technology collects quantitative data regarding cellular size, granularity, and fluorescence intensity signals, it ...

Ghost Trap: A New Urban Mosquito Trap with Dual Capture Mechanism

Ghost Trap: A New Urban Mosquito Trap with Dual Capture Mechanism

Rutgers scientists have developed a new mosquito trap which will attract and capture both the highly invasive Aedes albopictus (Asian tiger mosquito) and Culex spp. (a key vector of West Nile Virus in New Jersey). The trap captures mosquitoes that are exhibiting oviposition (predominantly Culex spp.) AND host-seeking (predominantly Ae. Albopictus) ...
