IPSCIO Record ID: 2546

License Grant
The Company has obtained exclusive rights to several microbes.
License Property
The Licensor has developed and patented a device that automatically cultures microorganisms in an enclosed tank and then regularly injects these organisms and their byproducts, along with other compatible products, into an irrigation line for distribution into the area being irrigated; thereof may collectively be referred to as 'BioJect' or the 'BioJect System'.

The Company has developed its patented BioJect system for the distribution of naturally occurring microbes that complement or reduce the need for many chemical fungicides, herbicides, insecticides and fertilizers (chemical products) currently used in golf and agricultural markets.  By utilizing microbes that occur naturally in the environment, the BioJect system overcomes many of the problems associated with traditional chemical products.  Traditional chemical products require repeated applications, which reduce the long-term effectiveness of such products and have been shown to have adverse environmental effects.  The BioJect system reduces the need for repeated chemical product applications, resulting in lower overall product and labor costs and increases the effectiveness of traditional chemical products. In addition, the Company believes that the use of microbes distributed through the BioJect system provides environmental benefits as compared to chemical product applications by limiting the exposure of humans to chemical products, reducing residual pesticide contaminants in plants and soil, and minimizing groundwater pollution.

Field of Use
The companies agree that Licensee’s developmental efforts for the Licensor will be targeted specifically to commercializing and adapting microorganisms so that they can be effectively introduced to the soil and to turf and crops through the BioJect System.

Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium (known as geoponics).
The basic principle of aeroponic growing is to grow plants suspended in a closed or semi-closed environment by spraying the plant's dangling roots and lower stem with an atomized, nutrient-rich water solution. The leaves and crown, often called the 'canopy', extend above. The roots of the plant are separated by the plant support structure. Many times closed cell foam is compressed around the lower stem and inserted into an opening in the aeroponic chamber, which decreases labor and expense; for larger plants, trellising is used to suspend the weight of vegetation and fruit. The main ecological advantages of aeroponics are the conservation of water and energy.

IPSCIO Record ID: 5797

License Grant
The Company was granted the Exclusive worldwide marketing rights for any product developed for development of a nutrient delivery system using proprietary aeroponic technology which could be used in a low cost consumer product.  Subsequently, the Company developed a fractionator bar technology, applied for two patents, and was granted one patent.
License Property
The fractionator bar technology uses a spinning cylinder to disperse water to the roots of plants in an aeroponic growing system. The patent applications include aeroponic technological advances described below as well as product, nutrient and seed pod inventions designed to enhance plant growth. Aeroponic technology is derived from hydroponics and occurs when plant roots are suspended in an air chamber and bathed at regular intervals with nutrient solution.
Field of Use
The Company believes that the aeroponic technology used in its kitchen garden systems is a technological advance over hydroponics because plant roots are suspended in a near 100% humidity enclosed air chamber and bathed in a nutrient-rich solution. We believe aeroponic methods ensure the plants not only have sufficient water, nutrients and oxygen, but the temperature inside the root chamber can be easily controlled, ensuring temperature stress of the plant does not limit growth. For this reason, we believe the use of a well designed and maintained aeroponic system can yield increases in growth rate and plant survival when compared to hydroponics systems.
