  • New foliar nutrient to improve sugar beet yields

    How it works The early growth stage is crucial to sugar beet yield, as sugar accumulation begins from very early in the growth cycle. Optimising nutrition during this important early phase encourages more even, healthy leaf growth and more productive photosynthesis when the sun shines. With the higher nutrient demand of sugar beet for NPK, Magnesium and essential micronutrients such ...

  • High Dump Cart is designed to speed up beet harvest

    The new 9016-BT High Dump Cart from Art’s Way was specifically designed to boost efficiency during the beet harvest. The 9016-BT wheel base is set so the tires can run through the field without damaging unlifted beets. The 15-inch wide tires, centered on 132 inches, straddle six rows of beets. The ...

  • A Sweet Alternative to Pasteurisation of Liquid Sugar

    As featured in this months edition of Food Processing, Diane White of atg UV Technology explains how UV Systems can provide a cost effective, power saving alternative to pasteurisation of liquid sugar solutions in food and beverage production Syrups – solutions of sugars like sucrose, fructose and glucose – are key ingredients in thousands of food and beverage products, ...

  • Keeping a pulse on the soil

    Leaving behind stubble is not ideal when shaving, but it’s a good practice to leave behind crop “stubble” after harvest. According to soil scientist Frank Larney, crop residue anchors the soil against wind and water erosion. Avoiding bare soils is one part of a soil conservation package he and his research team demonstrate in a 12-year experiment growing pulses in southern ...

  • Successful biobased pilot installations in Lelystad fully operational for businesses

    Fermentation of manure and biomass can become more economically viable if it is combined with biorefinery and the residual streams are optimally used. The EnergieRijk PPS programme has therefore linked a co-fermenter to biorefinery installations and an algae pond. Although the successful project has now been concluded, the research facilities at the ACRRES premises in Lelystad are still fully ...

  • ‘Exploding’ sugar beet cells for faster fermentation

    Sugar beet is an interesting raw material in the biobased economy as the sugars it contains can easily be fermented into valuable molecules. This does require a profitable process, however. The European ERA-NET innovation project ChemBeet is developing a very promising technology in which cells are exploded to create a faster and cheaper fermentation process.  “The sugar from sugar ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Produced by the UK’s Arable Sector Significantly Lower Than Previously Thought!

    Nitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas, contributing more than 40% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. Previously, production levels of nitrous oxide from soil were calculated at 1% a unit of nitrogen (N) applied. However, Farmers Weekly report that the five-year average Minimising Nitrous Oxide (MIN-NO) research study estimate for UK arable land is 0.46% of N applied, taking ...

  • ANDRITZ MeWa presents new cross-flow shredder generation for biogas facilities

    ANDRITZ MeWa’s Bio-QZ is used in hundreds of European biogas facilities for processing many different input materials, such as organic waste, corn silage, grass clippings, sugar beets, cattle and horse manure, as well as packaged food that has passed its sell-by date. Flexible tools inside the machine produce a homogeneous substrate that leads to faster gas formation, shorter fermentation ...

  • Eight things you should know about GMOs

    The use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) remains controversial, which is why the EU has very strict rules and complex authorisation procedures concerning their cultivation and commercialisation. Since April 2015, EU countries are able to ban the cultivation of GMOs on their territory, but should they have the same power regarding their commercialisation? Parliament's environment committee ...

  • First 4th Generation T Series Reach Customers

    Coinciding with the launch of the new T-series in November 2014, the factory in Suolahti, Finland, began mass production of the newly developed and extensively tested tractor range. Across Europe, including in Germany, the first machines are already working on farmland and with contractors. We were present at one of the handovers, and talked to the new owners. A white T174e Direct with front ...

  • Baker’s yeast wastewater has limited effect on groundwater when used for irrigation

    Untreated wastewater from the baker’s yeast industry can be used to irrigate crops without negatively affecting the chemical quality of the groundwater beneath, recently published research concludes. Although the wastewater increased concentrations of some groundwater contaminants in an area with a high water table, these levels would not pose a risk to human health even if this water was ...

  • Creep Feed Research and Vertical and Horizontal Storage Tanks

    According to the Farmers Guardian, new research indicates that feeding high protein creep to suckled calves improves growth rates. However, Rumenco’s David Thornton states that adjusting the margins and varying the formulation of the creep can improve formulations and therefore its end results. The creep feed used throughout the study comprised rolled barley, sugar beet feed, molasses and ...

    The Basque Institute for Agricultural Research and Development Neiker-Tecnalia, the public body that reports to the Sub-Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Policy of the Government of the Basque Autonomous Community (region), in coordination with the consulting firms HAZI Fundazioa (rural, shoreline and food development) and IK Ingeniería (ecodesign and environmental innovation in ...

  • Water demand for crops may rise in northern Germany under warmer climate

    By 2070, there may be insufficient water for irrigation to ensure yields and profitability for some crops currently grown in northern Germany - if the IPCC´s worst case climate change scenario becomes a reality - new research warns. To reduce future demand for water under a changing climate, the study suggests that farmers grow different crops and change their management practices. In ...

  • Seaweed problem could provide algae biofuel solution

    It has often been used as a farmland fertilizer, and in some communities it is eaten as a vegetable, but now researchers believe that seaweed could power our cars and heat our homes too. One species of algae in particular, sugar kelp (Laminaria saccharina), is exciting scientists from Norway. ...

  • Project Looks At Water Uptake in Beet Crops – Rainwater Harvesting Tanks Reduce Irrigation Costs

    Farmers Guardian recently reported on an interesting project being conducted by the University of Nottingham.  The four year research project is looking at ways of enhancing water uptake in sugar beet crops that will cut costs and reduce irrigation. The impetus behind the project lies in the fact that UK sugar beet crops lose around ten per cent of available water through poor water ...
