  • New hand-held grain moisture tester available from John Deere

    To help producers more accurately monitor the condition of their grain during harvest and in storage, John Deere introduces the GT-30300 Grain Moisture Tester. This new hand-held device provides direct readout of moisture and test weight for 20 different grains in seconds, without pre-weighing the samples, at the touch of a button. According to Barry Deiters, product manager with John Deere ...

  • Perten presents Near-infrared Grain Analyzer for Farm Use

    Near-infrared (NIR) grain testing has been a fixture at large elevators and grain processors for years. An on farm grain analyzer has been desirable for some time. The demands on such an instrument are high, however, and must balance many requirements. It must be rugged and robust. It must be portable to tote around the field. It must be simple to operate, but sophisticated enough to provide ...

  • ASTM D3043 - 00(2011) standard test methods for structural panels in flexure

    These methods give the flexural properties, principally strength and stiffness, of structural panels. These properties are of primary importance in most structural uses of panels whether in construction for floors, wall sheathing, roof decking, concrete form, or various space plane structures; ...

  • ASTM D3044 - 94(2011) standard test method for shear modulus of wood-based structural panels

    This test method is most useful for determining the moduli of rigidity of orthotropic materials for which moduli of rigidity cannot be computed from elastic moduli and Poisson's ratios. The shear modulus determined by this method appears in the equation governing the bending of a plate. This ...

  • ASTM D2718 - 00(2011) standard test methods for structural panels in planar shear (Rolling Shear)

    Planar shear (rolling shear) characteristics of structural panels determined by these test methods are essential for the rigorous design of various glued wood-panel structural components, such as box beams, folded plate roofs, and stressed skin panels. Planar shear also may govern the design at low ...

  • EMSL Analytical announces expanded mycotoxin analyses

    Superior detection limits offered by advanced LC-MS technologies.EMSL Analytical is pleased to announce expanded mycotoxin analyses. Mycotoxins are toxins produced by fungi under various environmental conditions. These toxins have been shown to have a detrimental effect on humans and other animals. Moisture, temperature, substrate type, and interactions with other microbes can all affect ...


  • Rome-based UN agencies join forces on food losses

    The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP) have launched a joint project to tackle the global problem of food losses. Around one-third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted each year, amounting to 1.3 billion tonnes - or enough food to feed 2 billion people. The three UN ...

  • Winter Wheat Harvest Woes

    Wheat harvest season is well underway for many U.S. wheat growers. Some of the first soft-red wheat harvested by U.S. farmers in 2015 is the worst in at least 17 years, according to Bloomberg and other sources. This year’s heavy rainfalls  – up to three times ...

  • Weather Fluctuations Impact Soybeans Less Than Other Field Crops

    From freezing temperatures and snow flurries to sunny, 80-degree days in a span of a week — if this type of strange weather continues, growers across Ohio want to know, will this have a negative impact on soybean crops? Not really, according to a field crops expert in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.   Laura Lindsey, a soybean ...

  • Diversifying crops `could green African agriculture`

    The biodiversity of crop fields could be key to a greener revolution in Africa, where ecosystems are degrading and crop yields are stagnating, says a study conducted in Malawi. African farmers could halve their fertiliser use and still get the same yields, the study found, with less year-to-year variation in yields and with as much as 70 per cent more protein in grains — by simply rotating ...
