Project Number: 3020-43440-008-10-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2018
End Date: Aug 31, 2019
Develop technology and procedures to measure characteristics of plants, grain, flour, dough, final products, insects, and other biological materials.
Rapid analytical technology will be developed or evaluated for their application to measuring traits of biological materials. This may include NIRS, FTIR, FTNIR, raman spectroscopy, laser-based sensors, and microscopic imaging for solving problems related to selecting single kernels for breeding programs, studying disease spread and resistance, measuring insect traits, and measuring other biological traits.
