07/03/14: New publication to help growers get sulphur levels back on track HGCA has released a new sulphur (S) publication to help growers get S levels back on track. Based on the latest research, Information Sheet 28 can be downloaded from the HGCA website. Over the last 45 years, ‘free’ sulphur deposits from the atmosphere have declined significantly due to reduced industrial pollution. Current deposition is estimated to be only 10 percent of 1980s levels. As soils store very little S, particularly on chalky or sandy soils, many more growers now need to consider making regular S applications. However, the 2012 HGCA/Defra yield plateau project found strong evidence that S application in many wheat and oilseed rape crops could be improved. The new publication includes data from two recently completed projects that looked at both supply and demand of this essential nutrient. The first project investigated how sulphur levels impact on cereal quality. “Organic materials contain useful supplies of S.
Historic Hayden Flour Mill re-opening as outdoor special-event venue TEMPE, Ariz. -- After standing abandoned for years, the historic Hayden Flour Mill is hours away from a grand re-opening that will launch its new life as a special-event venue. Friday's event is the culmination of about a year of restoration and clean-up work. Charles Trumbull Hayden opened the mill at the base of "A" mountain (Tempe Butte) in 1874, making it one of Tempe's first businesses. "The flour mill was the reason for the Tempe boom," explained historian Andrea Gregory. "Before the flour mill came in, it was a small farming community -- citrus, wheat and barley." The mill shut down in 1998. Those fences are gone now, and the grounds have been converted to accommodate special events. "This is a focal point for our community," Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said Thursday morning. The Hayden Flour Mill's grand opening happens on Friday, Oct. 5, 5 p.m.- 10 p.m., at 119 S. In addition to serving as an outdoor space for special events, the Green will be open daily, 7 a.m.-9 p.m.
Grain Flour Feed Milling Technology Magazine | GFMT Magazine GRAPAS Awards entries open You may think we have, over the past 150 years achieved all the progress we can towards creating an efficient milling industry the provides safe food at affordable prices and delivered to consumers on a timely basis. Not so. There is still significant progress being made towards those objectives on an annual basis and the GRAPAS Awards are designed to recognise the advances being made by industry in an area that has largely disappeared from view. That recognition is made in the form of an award called GRAPAS, and is made at the milling industry's most dedicated event - a three sector co-located exhibition held in Asia every two years and in Europe every fourth year. GRAPAS represents the cereals and oilseeds milling sector with a foes on rice, pasta and flour milling. However, to apply for the award a company must be exhibiting at the GRAPAS Exhibition. Application opened on Friday and exhibitors can log in here to download the application form.
20/11/12: News on GMO soy, the USDA and Hovis job cuts The Global Miller blog is an online offshoot of Grain and Feed Milling Technology magazine. While the bi-monthly magazine covers milling technology issues in-depth, the Global Miller takes a lighter approach. Our columnists have a keen eye for the most interesting, relevant and (let’s face it) bizarre milling stories from across the world. Each weekday we scour the internet for top-notch news and package it for your perusal in one neat daily digest.

Grain-bin rescue procedures taught at Washington County Agricultural Education Center - Herald Mail Media: Local News On the afternoon of Nov. 20, 2013, Dale Price was faced with a near-catastrophic accident at his farm on Keedysville Road. As workers were emptying corn from a bin, impacted corn near the bottom of the bin caused a blockage. An online service is needed to view this article in its entirety. Need an account? Price sent two men — his son, Lane Price, 19, of Keedysville and employee Neil Burcker, 40, of Downsville — into the bin with an 8-foot pole to clear the blockage. “Under normal conditions, this isn’t a problem,” Price said. The men were unaware of the impacted corn at the time. Moments later, when Dale Price realized there was a problem, Brucker was nearly engulfed. “When I entered the bin, Neil was buried,” Dale Price said. Price called 911 and said rescue workers responded with impressive speed. During the course of events that day, Price received a call from Perdue Agribusiness in Greencastle, Pa., offering help and equipment to assist with the rescue, he said.
