  • Patent number: 10520510
    Abstract: The technology of the present application is directed to methods and kits for detecting and quantifying a non-polar analyte in a plant-derived sample. The technology uses a simple extraction, e.g., a liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) or solid-phase extraction (SPE), to enrich a sample for a non-polar analyte of interest and to remove contaminants. After the extraction and clean-up steps, liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry are used to detect the non-polar analyte. In one embodiment, acequinocyl and/or its derivatives is analyzed using liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and the improved LC-MS/MS conditions allows detection limits of acequinocyl and/or its derivatives of 50 ppb or less.

  • Patent number: 10087495
    Abstract: In one aspect, the present invention relates to novel Bacillus strains ENV 734 (NRRL B-50800), ENV 735 (NRRL B-50801), ENV 736 (NRRL B-50802), and ENV 737 (NRRL B-50803). These strains possess a high degree of homology with both Bacillus simplex and Bacillus butanolivorans, but unexpectedly exhibit desirable high salt tolerance as well as low temperature growth and urease production. In another aspect, the present invention relates to compositions comprising at least one of such strains and an acceptable carrier, and methods of preparing the compositions. Such compositions are suitable for use in industrial, agricultural, aquacultural, environmental, wastewater treatment and/or probiotic applications. Methods for enhancing the growth of a plant propagative material and methods for treating wastewater are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10081805
    Abstract: Bio-regulators from a group of quaternary ammonium moieties modify a gene expression in a plant to induce enhanced growth and robustness. Such bio-regulator may be applied to seeds through coating or encapsulating, to plants through root drenching, spraying and dusting. Bio-regulators may be duel-acting; causing beneficial modification to gene expressions in desirable plants while modifying gene expression in undesirable plants, making them more susceptible to herbicides. Bio-regulators are Ester Compounds, BMIA Compounds or related salts, BMIA Compounds or related salts of those compounds.
