  • 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 ...

  • Abrasives case study - Carbo Ceramics

    It's been four years since Tom Sorensen has had to replace an elbow in his pneumatic conveying lines. But life wasn't always this easy for the maintenance manager at Carbo Ceramics' Eufaula, Ala. Facility. The company manufactures ceramic beads for use as proppants in oil and gas exploration and drilling. Global Giants such as Halliburton and Schlumberger pump the ceramic beads into well bores to ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Boost grain preservation before production

    Better grain storage would save money and feed over a billion, says Digvir S. Jayas. It deserves more attention. Annually over 2.6 billion tonnes of grains — cereals, oilseeds and pulses — are grown and then stored along the chain from producers to consumers. Most countries do not systematically report how much grain becomes unfit for human consumption during storage, but ...

  • Nanoscience to nanotechnology to manufacturing transition

    The primary focus of this review is on the transition of nanoscience to nanotechnology to manufacturing, specifically related to nanostructuring of materials for next–generation systems having superior performance. We start with the discussion of intrinsic advantages of nanoscale materials and systematic approach for transition into systems. As the feature (grain) size of solid–state materials ...

  • Improved wheat grains storage

    Improved wheat grains storage management SmartScan25 was installed at the Israeli large flour mill to improve wheat grains storage management, save costs and reduce material losses. Israeli Mills Ltd, located in the city of Tel Aviv, is one of the leading local flour providers. The mill produces various types of wheat products such as: bran, white flour, ...

  • Adoption, utilisation and economic impacts of improved post-harvest technologies in maize production in Kapchorwa District, Uganda

    High post-harvest losses, poor quality and lack of value addition at the farm level constrain maize production in Uganda. Concern over these issues prompted the government to introduce improved post-harvest technologies to reduce losses. However, there remain a huge number of farmers still using local post-harvest methods. Farmers are unlikely to accept new technologies unless the perceived ...

  • Post Harvested Stored Wheat Grain: Fungal Infestation and Nutrition

    The wheat grain production in any country varies from year to year and hence the grains should be stored strategically from years of overproduction for the use in year of under production. Also grain must be stored for several other reasons such as point of ...


  • Response of bt and near-isoline corn hybrids to plant density

    Transgenic Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) corn (Zea mays L.) hybrids with resistance to corn rootworm (CRW; Diabrotica spp.) or European corn borer [ECB; Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner)] can have greater tolerance to water and nutrient stress, and thus may have higher optimum plant densities. Experiments were conducted following soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] over nine site-years in Illinois to ...

  • Genotype x environment interactions of hybrid and varietal rice cultivars for grain yield and milling quality

    The study of genotype x environment interaction is critical for accurate cultivar evaluation in large multi-environment trials. Cultivars that exhibit high levels of mean performance and stability across a wide range of environmental conditions are desirable for rice production. Pure-line varietal and hybrid rice cultivars are commercially produced in the U.S.; however, little research has been ...

  • Capabilities of four novel warm-season legumes in the southern great plains: Grain production and quality

    Grain legumes could serve as a low cost nitrogen (N) and energy source for animal production in the southern Great Plains (SGP). This study evaluated the yield and nutritive value of grains of tropical annual legumes novel to the SGP. Included were cultivars of pigeon pea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] (cv. GA-2), guar [Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (L.) Taub.] (cv. Kinman), cowpea [Vigna unguiculata ...

  • Effects of Aframomum danielli (powder and extracts) on the nutritional, physico-chemical and sensory properties of wheat flour bread

    The effects of adding different concentrations of Aframomum danielli (powder and ethanoic extracts) on nutritional, physico-chemical and sensory properties of wheat flour bread were examined. A. danielli powder – 2, 4 and 6%, and ethanolic extract (0.1 and 0.2%) were added, respectively, to flour. Using alveograph and consistograph, the physical properties of the dough-water absorption capacity, ...

  • How treatment of homes for termites decades ago may cause diabetes today

    Obesity has been accepted as a risk factor for diabetes but results of four recently published studies have now revealed that insecticides in fat of patients may be the real risk factor. The initial investigations showed that the expected association between obesity and diabetes/insulin resistance was absent in people who had low levels of organochlorine insecticides in their blood (1, 2). ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Corn grain yield response to crop rotation and nitrogen over 35 years

    Crop rotation and N are management methods that can increase corn (Zea mays L.) grain yields. Our objective was to determine the corn grain yield response to six crop rotation sequences and four N rates in a long-term (35-yr) study. The rotations were continuous corn (CC), corn–alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) (CA), corn–soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] (CS), corn-corn-corn-alfalfa-alfalfa (CCCAA), ...
