  • Spent grain dewatering

    1. Back ground: Firms that produce alcoholic beverages from grain are an important market for dewatering Powerful Belt Press. The industry firms consist mostly of beer brewers and distilleries. Their raw materials are barley, corn, wheat, rice, and other grains. They all produce a common by-product: spent grain. Spent grain is the name given to material left after the grain is fermented and the ...

  • Skip-row and plant population effects on sorghum grain yield

    In environments with limited rainfall, skip-row configuration (planting one or a group of rows alternated with rows not planted) under rainfed conditions may increase yield of grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] due to conservation of soil water between widely-spaced crop rows that is not accessed until late in the growing season. A field study was conducted over 10 site-years in Nebraska ...

  • Planting date and cultivar effects on grain yield in dryland corn production

    Corn (Zea mays L.) production is gradually spreading into the Sudan savanna zone of West Africa where production is limited by erratic and inadequate rainfall. To increase corn production, production practices should be properly designed to minimize the effects of low precipitation and high temperatures that characterize the zone. A study, to determine the performance of late (120 d), early (90 ...

  • Grain legumes in northern great plains

    Cropping systems in the Northern Great Plains have shifted from fallow-based to legume-based systems. The introduction of grain legumes has impacted soil organisms, including both symbiotic and nonsymbiotic N-fixing bacteria, pathogens, mycorrhizae and fauna, and the processes they perform. These changes occur through effects of legume seed exudates, rhizosphere exudates, and decomposing crop ...

  • Grain case study - Quaker Oats

    Elbows Solve Pneumatic Wear Problems Problem It happened again and again. At the Pet Foods Division of Quaker Oats in Rockford, Illinois, the stainless steel elbows in their pneumatic conveying systems were wearing out every three months, or even less. Elbows were wearing through in three different systems: Two of the systems carry grains (barley, ...

  • Grain tanks help whiskey flow at Jack Daniels

    In a world that moves too fast, it’s nice to know some people don’t believe in shortcuts. That’s the spirit behind Jack Daniel’s, America’s oldest registered distillery. Founded in 1866, Jack Daniel’s is an iconic brand that’s synonymous with whiskey. From its modest beginnings, it has grown into a global brand that is available in more than 160 ...

  • Stability of rice grain and whole kernel milling yield is affected by cultivar and date of planting

    The objectives of this study were to evaluate rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivar stability and to characterize different planting dates for their consistency in grain yield and milling. Eight rice cultivars and seven planting dates were evaluated from 2003 to 2005 for a total of 19 yr x planting date environments. The coefficient of variation of cultivars and planting dates, a measure of relative ...

  • Grain case study - National Oats Co.

    National Oats Reduces Maintenance and Replacement Costs, Improves Flow Control with HammerTek Smart Elbow® "Cost-effective, compact, convenient and durable."

  • Multi-residue mycotoxin analysis of dry distillers grains

    Distillers grains (DG) are the still residues after the ethanol has been collected. Approximately 90% of US production is used in domestic animal feed. Any Mycotoxins present in the fresh corn can be concentrated by a factor of three. Contamination can also occur during storage. This raises concern about the potential animal and human health hazards from the use of Mycotoxincontaminated ...

  • Hulless barley seeding rate effects on grain yield and yield components

    Recent efforts to expand markets for winter barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) in the mid-Atlantic have focused on hulless types due to higher energy density. The exposed endosperm of hulless barley makes damage more likely than with hulled barley, and emergence is typically lower. Information to determine the optimum seeding rate for winter hulless barley is presently unavailable. Experiments were ...

  • Can grains of the past help us weather storms of the future?

    Combining science with traditional knowledge, researchers turn to ancient rice as a source of climate resilience In May 2009, Cyclone Aila wreaked havoc in eastern India. Clocking in at speeds of over 120 kilometers per hour, Aila hit the ...

  • Maize kernel oil and episodes of shading during the grain-filling period

    Previous studies documented the stability of maize (Zea mays L.) kernel oil concentration for a wide range of kernel weights promoted by contrasting post-flowering assimilate availabilities per kernel (i.e., source–sink ratios). These studies mainly modified the sink size with a low impact on the source size. In this study, we focused on kernel oil concentration response to source–sink ratio ...

  • Evaluation of management practices for grain amaranth production in eastern canada

    Grain amaranth (Amaranthus spp.) is a C4 dicotyledonous pseudocereal crop that was widely cultivated in pre-Columbian America. It was successfully introduced in many regions with contrasting environmental conditions. The introduction of grain amaranth in eastern Canada would represent an opportunity for diversification. A study was conducted to evaluate management practices for grain amaranth ...

  • Global Grain Stocks Drop Dangerously Low as 2012 Consumption Exceeded Production

    The world produced 2,241 million tons of grain in 2012, down 75 million tons or 3 percent from the 2011 record harvest. The drop was largely because of droughts that devastated several major crops—namely corn in the United States (the world’s largest crop) and wheat in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and Australia. Each of these countries also is an important exporter. Global grain ...

  • White wheat grain quality changes with genotype, nitrogen fertilization, and water stress

    The production of hard white winter (HWW) wheats (Triticum aestivum L.) with acceptable protein content and quality over different environments requires the correct combination of genotypes and management practices. The objectives of this study were to evaluate moisture deficit and N management on grain protein and quality of seven HWW and two soft white winter (SWW) genotypes, and to identify ...

  • Bumper 2011 Grain Harvest Fails to Rebuild Global Stocks

    The world’s farmers produced more grain in 2011 than ever before. Estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show the global grain harvest coming in at 2,295 million tons, up 53 million tons from the previous record in 2009. Consumption grew by 90 million tons over the same period to 2,280 million tons. Yet with global grain production actually falling short of consumption in 7 ...

  • Corn morphology, mass, and grain yield as affected by early-season red: far-red light environments

    The spatial arrangement among plants affects both vegetative and reproductive meristem development. More axillary meristems develop at lower plant densities, which are associated with relatively high red:far-red light ratios (R:FRs; 645:735 nm). However, little is known about the effect of R:FR on corn (Zea mays L.) productivity. We conducted field research to determine the effect of early-season ...

  • Relationships between immobilized Phosphorus uptake in two grain legumes and soil bioactive Phosphorus pools in fertilized and manure-amended soil

    Mixing P-immobilizing additives with manure has raised concerns of irreversible reduction in P availability to growing crops. A potted plant growth experiment was conducted to characterize cattle manure P mineralization as modified by iron amendments and uptake by pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.]. Triple superphosphate, untreated, or manure amended with ...
