U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Annual Report on Technology Transfer FY2013
Tom Vilsack (ed)
This report presents scientific breakthroughs discovered by U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) researchers that led to new patents and inventions with the potential for commercial application and potential economic growth in FY2013. Innovations range from flour made out of chardonnay grape seeds that prevents weight gain to antimicrobial packets that keep food from spoiling, efforts to protect U.S. troops in Iraq from diseases carried by sand flies, new processes for turning grass clippings and raked leaves into bioenergy, and many more. Studies have shown that every dollar invested in agricultural research returns $20 to the economy. USDA accelerated commercialization of federal research and government researchers working closely with the private sector to develop new technology and transfer it to the marketplace to benefit the public. USDA reports receiving 51 patents, filing 147 patent applications, and disclosing 180 new inventions in FY2013. USDA has 259 active Cooperative Research and Development Agreements with outside investigators, which includes Universities and other organizations. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
