Researchers with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) continue to explore techniques to enhance the functionality and utility of their Growout Monitoring System. The automated system records and analyzes bird vocalizations to assess their condition during the growout cycle.
The performance of applied research is a significant component of the Agricultural Technology Research Program (ATRP) mission, which also includes education, outreach, and technical assistance. This research can involve developing new technologies, materials, processes, systems, or methods that seek to push the boundaries of the current state-of-the-art and provide benefits to the poultry and agricultural industries.
Excessive phosphorus in wastewater discharge from poultry processing plants can degrade water quality and harm aquatic life in adjacent waterways. This makes effective wastewater treatment to remove the phosphorus in effluent a top priority for poultry processors.
Sim Harbert, senior research engineer, discusses his exploratory research project that is investigating the feasibility of using virtual reality tools to support the manufacture of automation technologies for handling natural products.

Does a cleaner growout environment produce a healthier chicken? Researchers with the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s (GTRI) Agricultural Technology Research Program are conducting an exploratory research project focused on answering that question.
The approaching summer of 2017 marks 24 years since the first issued Georgia National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit No. GAR050000 for industrial stormwater (2017 IGP or industrial general permit). Permittees are required to implement appropriate management practices to control discharged stormwater pollutants associated with facility industrial activity.
Small- and medium-sized manufacturers may be eligible to receive a no-cost energy assessment performed by personnel from one of the universities depending on the manufacturer’s geographical location.
