Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Objectives To determine the most effective mash recipe and optimal physical parameters for producing consistence, quality mulch pellets. In Phase I, we determined the general properties of a pellet that will make good mulch. The most critical operation is the actual milling of the mash into a pellet. It is a process involving pressure, heat and ...

Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This project identifies and investigates market characteristics of commercial turfgrass segments and their potential use of mulch products. The turfgrass mulch marketplace has been dominated by dry-applied and unprocessed straw. A new pelletized straw mulch is currently being developed. This new mulch preliminarily appears superior to convention...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

Pelletized Straw will develop and test formulas for the production of pellets made from grasseed straw for use as an organic mulch in support of the establishment of turfgrasses in commercial and residential applications. We will test for pellet formulations that retain the high bulk density of initial trial product while seeking to feed an opti...
