  • Alternative treatments to improve the potential of rice husk as adsorbent for methylene blue

    Alternative treatments, such as, NaOH, ultrasound assisted (UA) and supercritical CO2 (SCO2), were performed to improve the potential of rice husk as adsorbent to remove methylene blue (MB) from aqueous media. All the treatments improved the surface characteristics of rice husk, exposing its organic fraction and/or providing more adsorption sites. The Langmuir and Hill models were able ...

  • Basic Information of Rice Production Line

    The objective of a rice milling system is to remove the husk and the bran layers from paddy rice to produce whole white rice kernels that are sufficiently milled, free of impurities and contain a minimum number of broken kernels. The milling yield and quality of rice is dependent on the quality of the paddy, the milling equipment used and the skill of the mill operator. With the rapid ...

  • Predicting precipitation on nonpoint source pollutant exports in the source area of the Liao River, China

    The source area of the Liao River is an important grain growing area in China which experiences serious problems with agricultural nonpoint source pollution (NPS) which is impacting the regional economy and society. In order to address the water quality issues it is necessary to understand the spatial distribution of NPS in the Liao River source area. This issue has been investigated by ...

  • Rice husk revolution

    India produces 200 million tonnes of paddy. One tonne paddy gives 700 kg of rice and 300 kg of rice husk. Rice husk has heating value (calorific value) of 3000 kcal per kg. So it is excellent fuel. So we can burn rice husk and produce steam and generate power from it. For villages 10 KW power plant based on steam engine is quite appropriate which can process 4000 kg. of paddy into unpolished rice ...

  • CRISPR is coming to agriculture — with big implications for food, farmers, consumers and nature

    Gene editing offers dramatic advances in speed, scope and scale of genetic improvement. It also offers an opportunity for more nuanced GMO governance. Very few technologies truly merit the epithet “game changer” — but a new genetic engineering tool known as CRISPR-Cas9 is one of them. Since we first developed the ability to alter the genetic material inside a plant or animal in ...

  • The optimization of the paddy field irrigation scheduling using mathematical programming

    In planting rice, a significant amount of irrigation water is required to prepare the farmlands and do transplanting and this is directly related to the number of machines and workers available; that is, the more the length of plowing and transplanting process due to the lack of required machinery and labor, the more the water volume consumed. Therefore, in such conditions, it is important to ...
