New Firefighting Product Guarantees to Deliver 100% liquid to the Fire

The WATER POD is a somewhat 'rugby ball', or drum shaped product, molded from a degradable plastic, using the rotational molding process. The PODS have vertical integral 'fracture' seams molded into them, for a controlled rupture, and have a capacity of from 35 ~ 55 gallons of liquid. They are very ...

Method to Alter Sex Ratios in Avian Offspring

The present invention includes methods of influencing the sex chromosome ovulated by a female bird and altering the sex ratio in avian offspring by altering the exposure of an ovulating female bird to one or more stress hormones. In some aspects, the method includes exposing an avian female to a glu...

Method for Generating Hypermutable Plants

Blockade of mismatch repair in a plant can lead to hypermutation and a new genotype and/or phenotype. One approach used to generate hypermutable plants is through the expression of dominant negative alleles of mismatch repair genes in transgenic plants or derived cells. By introducing these genes in...

Lily plant named 'BJM 004'

A new and distinct lily plant substantially as shown and described, characterized by (1) stem thickness supported by flower crown without bending (9 mm in diameter); (2) straight stems with even leaf distribution from bottom to top (102 leaves per plant); (3) flower crown compact (around 1212 cm); (...
...

Lily Plant Named 'bjm 006'

A new and distinct lily plant substantially as shown and described, characterized by 1) stem thickness supported by flower crown (8 to 10 mm in diameter); (2) straight stems with even leaf distribution from bottom to top (more than 50 leaves per plant); (3) flower crown compact (around 36 cm); and f...

Transgenic plants overexpressing a plant vacuolar Pyrophosphatase

Transgenic plants are described which are engineered to overexpress vacuolar H+-PPase. Plants such as tobacco and petunia transformed with A. Thaliana AVP-1 are shown to have increased meristematic activity resulting in larger leaves, stem, flower, fruit, root structures, increased salt tolerance, e...

Plant having resistance to low-temperature stress and method of production thereof.

The present invention relates to a method of production of plants having improved resistance to low-temperature stress, comprising a stage of conversion of the cells of a plant with a sequence of exogenous arginine decarboxylase gene ADC1 under control of a promoter capable of functioning in the pla...
...

Fungicide preparation

A fungicide preparation comprises a fungicidally effective amount of at least one component selected from the group consisting of isolate Pseudomonas fluorescencs AB1, isolate Serratia plymuthica AB2, isolate Trichoderma reesei AF1, isolate Trichoderma viride AF2 and any mutant derived from these is...

Hive-mounted Disseminator Device

The present invention relates to the dissemination of biological control agents or other substances through the use of bees, in particular bumblebees. It relates to a disseminator device, installable in or in connection to the hive, and which contains biological control agents or other substances wh...
...

Use of Trehalase to Obtain Drought Resistance in Plants

The present invention relates to the use of trehalase to obtain drought and/or salt resistance in plants. More specifically, it relates to genetically modified constructs, transformed into plants and resulting in overexpression of trehalase, whereby the transformed plants show a significantly better...
...

Stress-tolerant Plants Expressing Mannosylglycerate-producing Enzymes

The present invention provides compositions and methods for increasing the level of mannosylglycerate in plants. Plants with increased levels of mannosylglycerate exhibit enhanced tolerance to stress, e.g., drought...
...

Pasture Management

A plant matter sensor, the sensor includes a pair of parallel spaced apart sensor arms and a control console, a first of the arms having a plurality of emitter means spaced along its length, each emitter configured and arranged to, in use, emit a signal substantially perpendicularly to the arm to be...
...

Method of Modifying Plant Development and Productivity

The present invention provides chimeric gene constructs for modulating expression and activity of endogenous Auxin Response Factors (ARFs) in plants, especially ARF2 and/or ARF18, and method of employing the chimeric genes to modulate one or more plant phenotypes including modifications to xylem str...
...

Nearest Neighbor Search with Random Projection Trees

The invention concerns a hyperplane-partitioned spatial indexing tree, such as a random projection tree that indexes data having a high dimensional ambient space. The invention also concerns estimating at least one nearest neighbor data point of a given query point using the tree. In particular the ...
...

Method for Improving Stress Resistance in Plants and Materials Therefor

The present invention provides a method for obtaining a plant with increased stress resistance relative to a wild-type plant, comprising: (a) introducing at least one mutation or exogenous nucleic acid into the genome of one or more plant cells which results in reduced activity associated with SAL1 ...
...

Method of Producing Plants Having Enhanced Transpiration Efficiency and Plants Produced Therefrom

The present invention provides methods of selecting plants having modified transpiration efficiency using plant ERECTA gene sequences and nucleic acids linked thereto, and to methods of producing plants having modified transpiration efficiency using isolated plant ERECTA gene sequences, in both trad...
...

Tree Fork

In a 1998 US Department of Agriculture Survey of urban forestry professionals found that tree health monitoring, and hazard tree evaluation were among the strategies the group deemed to be critical to the health and preservation of urban forests as well as areas most requested for training and infor...
