MANACLE , we work to bring better seeds for farmers. We do this by having a world-class breeding program that aims to keep finding the best plants adapted to local conditions. And, sometimes, we use genetic modification to bring beneficial traits to the plant, such as the ability to tolerate drought better, resist herbicide applications or ward off pests.
Monsanto provides seeds to farmers in eight row crops: alfalfa, canola, corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, sugarbeets and wheat. In this section, you can learn about each crop and Monsanto's products.
In countries where genetic modification (GM) of plants isn’t adopted, Monsanto sells conventional seed to farmers. This seed is produced via breeding—we find two really good parents and breed them to produce offspring that has the best plant characteristics for that farmer’s area. For example, France is a country where we sell non-GM corn hybrids.
In countries where GM is widely adopted by farmers, we sell both conventional seed and GM seed. GM seed may include the following plant characteristics introduced by modifying the plant’s genome:

As a leading textile manufacturer for more than 2 years, MANACLE TEXTILE has built its reputation by continually developing textiles that solve business-critical problems from an engineering, innovative and performance perspective.
Our experience across a wide spectrum of specialty industries allows us to ask the right questions that lead to the creation of breakthrough products which keep our customers at the forefront of their markets. The source of our success is rooted in our ability to thoroughly understand the problems our customers face and develop fabric solutions that address these challenges.
Our Application Driven Design approach means that each project is evaluated by the specific demands of its application. By fully understanding how the fabric will be used and the ultimate benefit of the end product, we can design a textile that delivers the desired performance. This in-depth approach often results in innovative fabric formations that will enhance the end product. When you team with MANACLE textile
MANACLE Textile manufactures solid knit fabrics with a wide range of breathability and flexibility. Knitted with interlocking stitches, our experienced technicians can alter the shape and size of these loops to create a spectrum of elongation qualities. We can construct solid knits that are completely stable or we can design solid knits with a great deal of stretch in width, length or bias. Solid knits breathe. Even the densest, most solid appearing knits have tiny openings, allowing the flow of air. The potential variability in sold knit fabric design allows the experienced team of MANACLE TEXTILE to create an enormous range of products to meet our customers' diverse needs. Our solid knits might be in your car seats allowing the upholstery to be shape-fitted to the foam underneath, or they may be in orthopedic devices, which require strength and significant stretch. They're in office furniture where the upholstery needs to support and conform neatly to the contours of a chair and they're in running shoes, helping to keep your foot comfortable and cool. Our creativity with solid knits is closely linked to our customers' imagination. Our textile specialists consult and partner with every customer. We're not content with a simple description of what you want. We ask questions, digging deep to learn your needs and understand the parameters in which you are working. We remain connected until we've created the precise fabric you want.
We create mesh netting fabrics with an almost unlimited variety of shapes and sizes. The advantage of mesh and net fabrics reside in their strength-to-weight ratio. These textiles can be lightweight, but remarkably tough and tear resistant. As one of the leading producers of mesh and netting in the India , MANACLE TEXTILE breadth and depth of experience allows us to vary the porosity of mesh and netting properties to meet highly specific applications. We can tighten the loops to create a filter fabric that allows water to pass through while capturing tiny particulates. We can use high elongation or elastomeric yarns to make fabrics with significant stretch and recovery. MANACLE TEXTILE ability to vary the component yarns and design of the mesh and netting allows us to manufacture a variety of textiles ranging from high-volume, low-cost to high-tech, cutting-edge products. We've innovated mesh netting for several industry applications. Within the aquaculture industry, clam farmers experienced a reduction in product yield using home grown solutions. We developed a mesh solution for their grow-out bags, with properties that can withstand the corrosive effects of constant submersion in saltwater and strong enough to keep predators at bay. For the military industry, existing tactical vests were adding unnecessary weight. We developed a lighter weight mesh fabric for these vests, which met specifications and subtracted precious weight from the soldiers' load. If mesh netting can solve a problem, we can design the precise fabric that meets your needs.
3D spacer fabrics offer some of the most innovative solutions of today. Because of our ability to design two distinct fabric surfaces along with the variability of connecting spacer yarns and thicknesses, an almost limitless variety of application solutions are within our reach. One great appeal of 3D spacer fabric is that it can, in some applications, replace foam that degrades yellows and is not environmentally friendly. 3D spacers allow for tremendous breathability, and we can vary the elongation and stability of the yarns to customize your solution. With 3D spacers, we are able to work with our customers to design the appearance of both the top and bottom layers, which may require separate performance and aesthetic qualities. Our 3D spacer fabrics are changing the way contract furniture is fashioned, allowing for increased comfort and design options. The fabric's breathability allows us to devise recreational backpacks that are light and comfortable against a hiker's back. 3D spacers are integral to today's high performance running shoes. An extremely thick version is used in mattress toppers for severe sleep apnea sufferers, allowing enhanced breathability that is not available with traditional mattresses. MANACLE TEXTILE continues to develop a wide range of cutting edge spacer solutions for an ever-growing list of industries and applications.
Collaboration and precision are vital to the success of MANACLEMILLS . Knowing the full extent of the challenges our customers face allows us to solve them with technical precision. Here's an example: A leading office furniture manufacturer came to us with a revolutionary new chair concept and needed a revolutionary new fabric for it. Our team met with their chief designer and engineer to thoroughly understand their aesthetic and performance goals. The design of the chair required a 3D spacer knit with a specific elongation parameter, but one that could not buckle or pucker. And, while they didn't want the chair to look like home furnishings, they also did not want it to appear too high tech. We developed a preliminary design with the characteristics and properties to address their needs. After several iterations we produced exactly what the customer had envisioned for, what is today, one of their top selling office chairs. To MANACLE Mills, engineering is collaboration. It's the process of turning the customer's exact problem into our own challenge, then working quickly to create a precise solution. Nobody works more closely with customers than MANACLE Mills.
Innovation is not simply dreaming up new ideas. It’s in the ability to transform new ideas into actual products. MANACLE Mills is asked to truly innovate all the time. A customer contacted MANACLE Mills with the idea of treating wastewater using a fabric that allowed water-purifying bacteria to multiply in quantities that could eat the impurities from the water. MANACLE Mills engineers fully evaluated the problem and implemented a highly unconventional manner of knitting that produced a fabric with large loops and a uniquely textured surface to accelerate bacteria growth. After much research and testing, MANACLE Mills delivered the textile solution, which today is patented and widely used in the treatment of wastewater. MANACLE Mills innovates across industries.
Customers use our products in mission critical situations and must have the confidence that our fabrics will perform to the standards they’ve established. When we created a gold-coated fabric for the stealth bomber, minimizing its radar detectability, When we were called upon to create a low infrared signature textile for military gear, soldiers’ lives were depending upon us. Time after time, MANACLE Mills meets the performance challenge. Our fabric is an essential component in the lightweight, highly efficient multi-layer insulation systems used by space vehicles. Every vehicle that launches into space needs insulation to ensure continued operations. Our fabric plays a key role in helping to moderate the extreme temperatures in space. Within the medical field, we created a fabric for joint replacement products. When physicians learned that smooth stainless steel does not stimulate bone growth into the artificial insert, MANACLE Mills developed a coarse, high strength yet flexible, fabric to shroud the insertion, thereby promoting adhesion and reducing integration time. In textiles, there are basic properties that repeatedly come into play: strength-to weight ratio, elongation and stretch, durability, porosity and thickness. The secret to consistent performance is finding the perfect balance between these properties to meet our customers.
Textiles are far more sophisticated than sweaters and cotton cloth. With applications in fields as wide ranging as aerospace, automotive, biodiversity and health care, the broad range of qualities and characteristics that textiles offer, make them a perfect solution for challenges from simple to complex. Some are tough, some are soft, some are stretchy, some are all of these. Some help clean polluted water.
Some prevent burns. Some hold airplane parts together. Others camouflage soldiers in combat. How does MANACLE Mills design products for such a wide range of customer needs?
Yarns are the building blocks of textiles. At MANACLE Mills, we work with yarn makers to create yarns specific to each customer's needs. MANACLE Mills uses only synthetic yarns, which are created by heating and softening polyester chips, then spinning and extruding them in long continuous filaments.
A yarn might be monofilament-like fishing line, or it can use combinations of multiple filaments spun together forming yarns with various properties. These multifilament yarns create fabrics with unique structure, such as increased stretchiness, greater porosity, or varying degrees of softness, toughness, luster or pliability. Some yarns may consist of over a hundred filaments spun together, making the end fabric softer and more plush. In essence, the higher the filament count, measured in deniers, the softer the fabric will be.
Yarns have different lusters-degrees of brightness. Most yarns in cross section are round, but a cross section of a tri-local yarn looks like a triangle with concave sides, which produce the most reflective fabrics. Vests for highway workers are made with tri-local yarns, so that they may be as bright as possible. Yarns can have hydrophilic properties designed into them, to wick water away, or they can have antimicrobial elements added, to avoid unpleasant odors. Now, many yarns are being recycled adding environmental friendliness to their attributes.
Yarn choice is critical in a fabric; most major textile mills buy materials from the same yarn makers. When yarns come through MANACLE Mills' doors, that's where the magic begins. That's where spools of yarn become something more than what our competitors offer. MANACLE Mills does not weave its textiles. We use only warp knitting because of the advantages it provides over other techniques.
Woven fabrics are made from threads running vertically and horizontally (think a broadcloth shirt) which leaves little room for variation in porosity and almost no room for stretch. Warp knitting, the linking of stitches and loops (think of a quality golf shirt), frees designers to vary the fabric's architecture in ways that affect elasticity, porosity, durability, coarseness or smoothness. Warp knitting allows for the production of much wider sheets of fabric than circular knitting or weaving. It creates fabrics much less likely to sag, shrink or ravel. And, warp knitting allows MANACLE Mills to create three different kinds of fabric: solid knit, mesh/netting and 3D spacer fabrics.
Warp knitting involves attaching sometimes thousands of yarn filaments side by side on a long metal spool called a beam and winding them together. It's critical that all the filaments are wound onto the beam at the same tension to prevent defects in the fabric. It is a scientific process and requires the skills of a trained technician to thread the machine properly. When you watch someone knit a sweater, they move horizontally, one row of loops and stitches at a time. A warp knitting machine knits vertically by using thousands of needles to create thousands of loops and stitches simultaneously.
By varying the type of yarns used and how, and by altering the movement of the needles, MANACLE Mills can create solid knit or mesh knit fabrics with loop openings of differing shapes and sizes. The machines provide enormous flexibility, so that vastly different textiles can be produced from the same process.
Warp knitting also allows us to create 3D spacer fabrics, which are replacing foam in many applications because they're more durable and environmentally kind. These fabrics consist of two layers of multifilament mesh knits connected with lengths of thick spacer fibers-often springy monofilament-to create a thicker, bouncier fabric that allows for air movement between the layers. These fabrics are useful in office furniture, military backpacks, running shoes and automotive seats that feature blown air circulation.
The fabric that rolls off the warp knitting machine is called greige (pronounced "gray"). Some greige fabrics are used as is but a considerable number of MANACLE Mills textiles require finishing. When customers want colored fabrics, the greige is placed in a jet-dye tank and subjected to heat and pressure so that the injected dyes take evenly and are colorfast.
A mesh knit fabric will naturally want to compress like an accordion. These fabrics require tenting, a process whereby the fabric edges are pinned to parallel rails which can be widened or narrowed to provide the preferred elongation, stretch and smoothness of the fabric. It is then run through heating ovens precisely regulated at pre-determined temperatures that MANACLE Mills engineers know will set the fabric's stretch memory. We're able to create various textiles with the precise elongation and elasticity our customers want them to have.
At this point, fabrics may be treated with other applications according to the customer's needs: antimicrobial elements, flame retardant chemicals, UV treatment to prevent color fading, or resins to make the fabric stiffer.
Nobody has the breadth of capability that MANACLE Mills has. We can produce a fabric that weighs a half-ounce per linear yard, or one that weighs 25 ounces per linear yard.

Double-deck and multipurpose tunnels
Some tunnels are double-deck, for example the two major segments of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge (completed in 1936) are linked by a double-deck tunnel through Yerba Buena Island, the largest-diameter bored tunnel in the world. At construction this was a combination bidirectional rail and truck pathway on the lower deck with automobiles above, now converted to one-way road vehicle traffic on each deck.
In Hong Kong SAR (of China), the Lion Rock Tunnel, built in the mid 1960s connecting New Kowloon and Sha Tin, carries a motorway and an aqueduct. A recent double-deck tunnel with both decks for motor vehicles is the Fuxing Road Tunnel in Shanghai, China. Cars travel on the two-lane upper deck, and heavier vehicles on the single-lane lower level.
Multipurpose tunnels exist that have more than one purpose. The SMART Tunnel in Malaysia is the first multipurpose flood control tunnel in the world, used both to convey traffic and occasional flood waters in Kuala Lumpur.
Common utility ducts or utility tunnels are carry two or more utility lines. Through co-location of different utilities in one tunnel, organizations are able to reduce the costs of building and maintaining utilities.
Over-bridges can sometimes be built by covering a road or river or railway with brick or steel arches, and then leveling the surface with earth. In railway parlance, a surface-level track which has been built or covered over is normally called a "covered way".
Snow sheds are a kind of artificial tunnel built to protect a railway from avalanches of snow. Similarly the Stanwell Park, New South Wales "steel tunnel", on the South Coast Line, protects the line from rockfalls.
Owing to the enclosed space of a tunnel, fires can have very serious effects on users. The main dangers are gas and smoke production, with even low concentrations of carbon monoxide being highly toxic. Fires killed 11 people in the Gotthard tunnel fire of 2001 for example, all of the victims succumbing to smoke and gas inhalation. Over 400 passengers died in the Balvano train disaster in Italy in 1944, when the locomotive halted in a long tunnel. Carbon monoxide poisoning was the main cause of death. In the Caldecott Tunnel fire of 1982, the majority of fatalities were caused by toxic smoke, rather than by the initial crash.
Motor vehicle tunnels usually require ventilation shafts and powered fans to remove toxic exhaust gases during routine operation.
Rail tunnels usually require fewer air changes per hour, but still may require forced-air ventilation. Both types of tunnels often have provisions to increase ventilation under emergency conditions, such as a fire. Although there is a risk of increasing the rate of combustion through increased airflow, the primary focus is on providing breathable air to persons trapped in the tunnel, as well as firefighters.
When there is a parallel, separate tunnel available, airtight but unlocked emergency doors are usually provided which allow trapped personnel to escape from a smoke-filled tunnel to the parallel tube.
Larger, heavily-used tunnels, such as the Big Dig tunnel in Boston, Massachusetts, may have a dedicated 24-hour manned operations center which monitors and reports on traffic conditions, and responds to emergencies. Video surveillance equipment is often used, and real-time pictures of traffic conditions for some highways may be viewable by the general public via the Internet.
Mining Techniques - Sequential Excavation Method
The sequential excavation method (SEM, also known as NATM or New Austrian Tunneling Method) is a mined method that will primarily be used for the Chinatown Station. This method is used to control deformations and thereby mobilize and maximize the self supporting capacity of the surrounding rock or soil. The tunnel excavation is carried out in increments (headings or rounds) in numerical sequence, which are supported with sprayed concrete (shotcrete) and other supporting elements immediately after exposure, followed by installation of additional steel and shotcrete support elements until a safe stable opening is created. SEM provides a high degree of flexibility during construction and makes it possible to control virtually all kinds of ground conditions, thereby greatly reducing the risks of construction. This method of tunnel construction is used worldwide for small to large openings in a variety of ground types ranging from rock to soil.
After completion of the excavation and initial support, a waterproofing system is installed between the initial and the final lining. The final lining, which can be either reinforced cast-in-place concrete or reinforced shot Crete, is then installed.
Tunnels are dug in types of materials varying from soft clay to hard rock. The method of tunnel construction depends on such factors as the ground conditions, the ground water conditions, the length and diameter of the tunnel drive, the depth of the tunnel, the logistics of supporting the tunnel excavation, the final use and shape of the tunnel and appropriate risk management.
The cut and cover method employing a “top-down” or “bottoms-up” approach will be used for the Union Square/Market Street Station, for the Yerba Buena/Moscone Station and for the Tunnel Portal. This method involves construction of a box frame structure within a trench excavation that is subsequently backfilled. In urban settings the cut-and-cover method requires utility relocation, traffic re-routing, and creates construction impacts in the form of noise, dust, and traffic, transit and business access disruption. “Top-down” refers to the sequence of final structures erected with the excavation, whereas with the “bottoms-up” approach the excavation utilizes temporary struts and bracings to the final level before erection of final structures from the bottom of excavation back up to surface.
Decking will be placed over the cut immediately following the first layer of excavation to reduce traffic disruption. The decking is removed and the surface restored at the end of construction. Temporary excavation support walls (or shoring) are installed before significant excavation commences. These walls must be supported with internal struts as the excavation is deepened to avoid instability and control settlement at the sides of the cut. The shoring used will either be cased secant piles or slurry walls.
Cased secant piles are non-driven piles that can be used for ground support in soft ground and hard ground. Secant pile walls are formed by constructing interlocked concrete piles reinforced with steel beams. Used extensively in dense population areas due to the minimal disturbance they cause to adjacent structures, secant pile walls are commonly used for shafts and stations in saturated soil conditions. The steel reinforcement in the form of wide-flange sections will be dropped or vibrated into place.
Slurry walls are reinforced concrete walls used in areas of soft earth close to open water or with high ground water table. A trench is excavated to create the diaphragm (water-blocking) foundation walls around the perimeter of the excavation. The trench is kept full of surry preventing collapse from the earth pressure and prevents water flow into the trench. The slurry wall uses steel reinforcement cages which are lowered into to the trench and filled with concrete to displace the slurry. The slurry wall serves as both the excavation of support and permanent wall structure of the station.
A construction approach called “deep tunneling” will be used to construct the Central Subway. Deep tunneling allows most of the work to be done below ground, reducing disruption on the surface. The tunneling will be accomplished with a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), detailed in the next section, that has been used extensively throughout the world. Deep tunneling has great potential for controlling project costs by minimizing surface construction staging, reducing utility relocations and shortening construction time.
The only visible tunneling activity will occur at the portal construction location (4th Street between Bryant and Harrison streets) and at the excavation site (Columbus Avenue at Union Street)
A TBM consists of a rotating cutterhead within a cylindrical steel shell that is pushed forward along the axis of the tunnel while excavating the ground through the cutterhead. The steel shield supports the excavated ground as required until the final tunnel lining is built in the rear of the shield. The shield is propelled using hydraulic jacks that thrust against the erected tunnel lining system. The TBM is used in conjunction with a prefabricated ground support system, which consists of pre-cast concrete segments that are bolted and gasketed to form a watertight lining.
Pressure-face TBMs that are capable of exerting a balancing pressure against the tunnel face are used to control excavation rates and groundwater inflow, as well as to maintain stability of the tunnel face.
After completion of TBM excavation and installation of the lining, the temporary rail and conveyor system are removed, the invert is cleaned, and a flat invert for the permanent rail fixation and a raised walkway are constructed as reinforced, cast-in-place concrete. The invert contains embedded pipes and inlets for track drainage.
TBM’s will be used to construct the entire length of both tunnels. The tunnels will be approximately 8300’ long and range in depth from approximately 40’ to 120’.
