  • 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 ...

  • Alternative Test Method for Resilient Modulus of Fine-Grained Subgrades

    The mechanistic design of flexible pavement systems requires the specification of mechanical properties for asphaltic concrete, base course, and soil subgrade. The stiffness of the soil subgrade is represented by the resilient modulus, Mr, which is determined in the laboratory from cyclic triaxial tests and is usually a function of the level of applied stress. For a typical pavement project where ...

  • Characterization of grain-filling patterns in diverse maize germplasm

    Information regarding genotypic variability for maize (Zea mays L.) grain-filling patterns is scarce, especially at the inbred level. We characterized a large set of public and elite proprietary inbred lines for kernel growth traits. Lines were selected to sample divergent kernel size, genetic diversity, and lines released from breeding programs. The traits characterized were final kernel weight ...

  • 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 ...

  • Expansion Potential of Compacted Fine-Grained Soils Using Suction Measurements

    Fine-grained soils in arid climates are most often unsaturated. If such soils have a swelling potential, their expansive pressure must be determined for structural design. Hitherto employed swelling test methods are time consuming and not reliable. Testing methods based on suction potential measurements are being introduced in order to evaluate the expansive potential.Swelling test results on ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wheat grain quality response to tillage and rotation with field Pea

    Preceding spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) with field pea (Pisum sativum L.) can enhance wheat grain yield in a wheat-pea (WP) rotation compared with continuous wheat (WW). The pea-rotation benefits to wheat grain quality are uncertain. A 6-yr study was conducted to determine (i) if grain protein content, kernel weight, and test weight were enhanced for wheat in a WP rotation compared with WW, ...

  • Physicochemical properties of acha (Digitaria exilis and Digitaria iburua spp) grains

    Some physicochemical properties of two varieties of acha (Digitaria exilis and Digitaria iburua) were studied. Physical properties including kernel size, 1000-kernel weight, and water absorption rate of the grains were determined. Water absorption reached a maximum after steeping for 25 hours. The starch content exhibited a two-stage pattern of swelling and solubility properties similar to other ...

  • Linking Wisconsin dairy and grain farms via manure transfer for corn production

    One relatively under-used manure management strategy employed by dairy farmers is to transport and apply manure onto the fields of nearby grain farmers. While this system offers advantages to both parties, little of the existing research on manure management has been conducted on grain farms. As part of an effort to link grain and livestock farms in southern Wisconsin, 20 on-farm trials were ...

  • 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 ...

  • Grain sorghum and corn comparisons: yield, economic, and environmental responses

    Grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is often grown where water stress is expected. But, improved drought tolerance in corn (Zea mays L.) hybrids has resulted in increased dryland corn production in preference to grain sorghum. However, grain sorghum may still have a yield advantage over corn in drought prone environments. This study was conducted to determine if grain sorghum has either a ...

  • Alternative crop rotations under mediterranean no-Tillage conditions: biomass, grain yield, and water-use efficiency

    In Mediterranean semiarid areas, barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) are major crops because they are well adapted to limited-water environments. In this study we tested the performance of alternative rotations to the typical barley and wheat monocultures in a rainfed Mediterranean semiarid area of northeastern Spain under a no-tillage (NT) system. Four rotations were ...

  • Adaptation of cool-season grain legume species across climatically-contrasting environments of Southern Europe

    Information on most-adapted species is required to increase the economic sustainability and the utilization of cool-season feed legumes in southern Europe. This study aimed to compare pea (Pisum sativum L.), faba bean (Vicia faba L.), narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.), and white lupin (L. albus L.) across Italian environments which contrasted for geoclimatic area (subcontinental or ...

  • Effects of the chromosome region including the Gpc-B1 locus on wheat grain and protein yield

    The recent cloning of the Gpc-B1 gene from Triticum turgidum ssp. dicoccoides (Körn. ex Asch. and Graebn.) Thell. (DIC hereafter) chromosome 6BS revealed that modern wheat varieties have a nonfunctional allele. The DIC allele accelerates senescence and increases grain protein concentration (GPC) relative to the nonfunctional allele, but its effect on yield is not known. Here we describe the ...

  • Automatic Back-Pressure Saturation Device for Triaxial Testing

    If back pressures are applied to unsaturated triaxial specimens too rapidly, the specimens may be overconsolidated by the temporary application of effective stresses that are higher than intended. This is dangerous because the strengths of the specimens will be higher than they would be without this inadvertent overconsolidation. An automated device has been developed to ensure that the specimen ...

  • A comparison of mixed-model analyses of the Iowa Crop performance test for corn

    Multienvironment trials generally have highly unbalanced data structures in which a particular cultivar is only observed in a subset of all environments for which data are available. A very common approach to reporting data from such unbalanced data is to subset the data into balanced subsets and restrict comparisons within balanced subsets. Such an approach results in much information being ...
