  • Brewer's Grain - Case Study

    Brewer's grain is a vegetable residue from the production of beer and other malt beverages. The material has a high nutritional value and is a popular feed supplement for livestock. Dairy farmers consider brewer's grain to be a highly palatable and absorptive feedstock that helps stimulate milk production. However, due to the high moisture content, fresh brewer's grain has a very short shelf ...

  • 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 - Miller Brewing Co.

    Smart Elbow® Installation Brought in $30,000 Under Projected Budget The compact design of the Smart Elbows saves space-the twelve 6" elbows shown here occupy the same space as a large desktop. They may also be rotated on their flanges for greater design flexibility and installation ease. At Miller Brewing Company's Fort Worth, TX, facility, staff engineer Roy Marin was faced with an ...

  • 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 ...

  • Improving the fermentation characteristics of corn through agronomic and processing practices

    This study determined the influence of corn (Zea mays L.) hybrids, N availability, grain harvest moisture, and drying temperatures on dry-mill ethanol production. Six hybrids, ranging from 92 to 108 d in relative maturity (RM), were planted at two locations over 2 yr. One of four N fertilizer treatments were applied. Grain was hand-harvested at grain moistures of 20 and 25%. Grain was dried to ...

  • Why ethanol production will drive world food prices even higher in 2008

    We are witnessing the beginning of one of the great tragedies of history. The United States, in a misguided effort to reduce its oil insecurity by converting grain into fuel for cars, is generating global food insecurity on a scale never seen before. The world is facing the most severe food price inflation in history as grain and soybean prices climb to all-time highs. Wheat trading on the ...

  • Beer: Making Bread And Mushrooms

    A traditional brewery of today (see model of traditional brewery below), that brews beer according to the German purity standards, produces beer, but also produces organic waste streams and lost energy. This waste from the brewery is organic material which means that its polluting effect could be seen as minimal. However, given the quantity of water needed for the large volumes of beer produced ...

  • Structural characterisation of textured gold nanowires

    Gold nanowire ensembles of high aspect ratio were grown by electrodeposition into nanoporous polymeric templates. Under dc electrodeposition conditions a strong texture of the nanowires was observed, whereas under ac deposition conditions a preferred growth direction in was found. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X–ray diffraction (XRD) investigations confirm the broken bond model ...

  • Can the World Feed China?

    By Lester R. Brown Overnight, China has become a leading world grain importer, set to buy a staggering 22 million tons in the 2013–14 trade year, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture projections. As recently as 2006—just eight years ago—China had a grain surplus and was exporting 10 million tons. What caused this dramatic shift? It wasn’t until 20 years ...

  • Hierarchical modelling applied to agriculture: wheat planting decisions in the Pacific Northwest

    This paper presents a hierarchical decision model that predicted Alturas soft white spring wheat would be the best spring wheat variety to plant in the Pacific Northwest in 2006. Profitability depends on changing market demands and competition with other crops. The challenge of wheat farming is sustaining profitability. A four level hierarchical decision model approach was selected for this ...

  • Raising water productivity

    With water shortages emerging as a constraint on food production growth, the world needs an effort to raise water productivity similar to the one that nearly tripled land productivity during the last half of the twentieth century. Worldwide, average irrigation water productivity is now roughly 1 kilogram of grain per ton of water used. Since it takes 1,000 tons of water to produce 1 ton of grain, ...

  • Seeds of change in sub-Saharan Africa

    In the late 1900s, as per-acre grain yields moved to 3 metric tons per hectare in South and Southeast Asia and Latin America, 5 metric tons per hectare in China, and 10 metric tons per hectare in North America, Europe and Japan, there’s one place where production stagnated big time: sub-Saharan Africa, where loss of soil fertility on small farms trapped grain production at an unsustainable ...
