FARM: Fertilizer Application Resource Monitor
TS-041592 — FARM is a real-time mobile application that uses precipitation forecasts to guide farmers in their use of fertilizer and pesticides.
Weather forecasting is a useful tool for farmers who need to decide how best to treat their crops. Applying fertilizer or pesticide to crops, just to have the rain wash it away, results in a waste of resources. Additionally, many areas such as Ohio have regulations for fertilizer and pesticide run…

The OSU Soil Organic Matter Calculator
TS-040136 — The Ohio State University’s Soil Organic Matter Calculator is a program that can be used to calculate future organic soil quality, greenhouse gas emissions, nitrogen fertility over short- and long-term scenarios in rder to help farmers decide more sustainable methods of agriculture.
Farmers, scientists, educators, industries and other non-profit organizations are increasing in need of a simple way to make accurate models and simulations of the environmental impact of land management choices and practices. Various different group and organizations from a wide variety of indust…

Remote Sensing Image Processing Algorithm for Assessing Plant Population at Emergence
TS-036544 — An algorithm that processes aerial images to provide farmers with data on crop emergence needed for improving crop management decisions.
In the field of crop management, remote sensing technologies capturing soil and plant data through reflected light, provide farmers invaluable data to effectively manage crop yields. Currently, there are two type of remote sensing tools: passive and active. With passive systems, reflected sunlight…

System for expression of genes in plants from a virus-based expression vector
TS-015168 — TMV-based expression vector system modifications result in an easier, more reliable, and more cost-effective way to produce recombinant proteins in plants.
Plants exhibit potential as recombinant protein production systems. One method of inducing protein production involves a modified cDNA copy of an RNA plant virus. cDNAs are then transcribed in vitro, and RNA inoculated onto plants. This final step is expensive with variable success rates. Another …

Small Molecule Modulators as a Means to Control Tomato Bacterial Canker
TS-014936 — Small molecule modulators of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis (Cmm) as a means to control tomatobacterial canker.
Current efforts to control tomato cankers rely heavily on copper bactericides and antibiotics. These methods have significant limitations in that they exhibit limited efficacy in treatment and may promote pathogen resistance. Common strategies for controlling tomato bacterial canker mainly rely on…

Natural and Synthetic Soybean Promoters that Regulate Gene Expression
TS-014870 — Increasing soybean production by enhancing already existing genetically modified traits
As the global population expands, the demand for food increases. The agricultural industry is continually seeking methods to grow stronger crops that are less susceptible to disease and environmental stress. Currently, farmers use pesticides and genetically modified crops to increase crop yields. …
