Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arkansas

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MS-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to develop a novel bionematicide to control soybean cyst nematode (SCN) in soybeans. In wide-ranging preliminary research, this bionematicide controlled several nematode stages, including up to 90% of cysts (the primary inoculum source for SCN infestations). The isolate a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.2-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will evaluate a fungal organism as a mycoherbicide for control of dandelion in the turf. Because of significant growth in the turf grass industry and the subsequent increase in use of chemical herbicides, this technology can have impact to lessen environmental issues surrounding pesticide u...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

Although biocontrol technology, including mycoherbicides, has been investigated for a long period of time, few products have actually made it into the commercial loop. The reasons for this are varied and include unfavorable environmental conditions, small markets and poor shelf-life. The test mycoherbicide candidate in this project, A. destruens...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to use innovative co-encapsulation processes to enhance infectivity and efficacy of the biocontrol agent, Colletotrichum capsici, for control of the noxious weed "pitted morning glory". The enhancing components to be examined in this project include germination stimulants, conidia prote...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

his Small Business Phase Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate microencapsulation technology, including microencapsulated phase change materials (microPCMs), to improve biological control of soilborne plant diseases. Success in this program would enhance the potential of using this technology in a broad range of biocontrol ...
