New Zealand farmer breaks his own record with amazing wheat crop

A few years ago Milling and Grain magazine reported on Eric Watson, a farmer from Ashburton in Canterbury, New Zealand when he set the Guinness World record of for the highest wheat yield with a crop of 16.791 tonnes per hectare in 2017.

Mr Watson has just broken his record, producing a whopping 17.398 tonnes per hectare, much higher than New Zealand's national average of 12 tonnes per hectare.

Mr Watson spoke to Stuff, a local media outlet about his achievement, "While we were thrilled with the record result in 2017, we saw ways in which we could make improvements and achieve an even higher yield. By trying new cultivars, switching to liquid nitrogen and monitoring plant health more regularly we were able to achieve another incredible result. The farm has produced several high-yield wheat crops in recent years and Watson said he is pleased with a year-on-year increase of 100-200 kiograms per hectare. So to beat my last crop by almost 600kg/ha exceeded even my hopes.'

The wheat was planted in April 2019 and harvested on 17th February 2020, the kerrin wheat is likely to be used to feed beef or dairy cattle.

Much like for Mr Watson's previous record, Bayer Crop Science have worked closely with him in achieving these results.

According to the Foundation for Arable Research, New Zealand farmers harvest approximately 400,000 tonnes of wheat each year.

Prevention is better than treatment—How to prevent insect infestation at a grain store…

by Tyrone Moy, Tekpro, UK

If you are responsible for the running and maintenance of a bulk grain store, you probably dread the thought of having a pest infestation and take a great deal of care to avoid it. Time and money are spent making sure a store is clean before the grain is delivered, and controls and measures are taken to create an environment that makes it hard for insects and pests to successfully thrive and wreak havoc. It’s normally worth the extra expense, because it costs less than cleaning a large amount of infested grain, but in reality, is that really sufficient?

Experience suggests a grain store will test for insects when a bulk delivery arrives, by sieving a relatively small sample of between 500g to 1kg and assessing the screenings by eye. But realistically, how reliable is this method? It greatly depends on the size of the sample, and the size of the potential incoming infestation...
 


A sample case of infestation
Let’s just consider a truck that arrives at your grain store with 20,000kg of grain, in which there are insects at a ratio of 1 insect to every 10kg. If you extract a 10kg bulk sample from the load, and screen only a 1kg sub sample for the presence of insects, you would only have a one-in-ten chance of that sample containing an insect, because you are testing such a small representation of the entire load!

However, if that 1kg sub sample is the one with an insect, you then have to rely on the operators spotting it (providing they have sieved sufficiently to shake the insects from the grain). If they don’t notice it, or have tested a sample without an insect, they would in effect have just accepted a delivery of 2000 insects!

Suppose that load is then added to a storage unit that already contains 80,000kg of previously clean grain. Unfortunately, by not screening effectively at the point of entry to the grain store, you would now have 100,000kg of infested grain. This could potentially be even more if you still add additional product to the silo afterwards... This is a scenario based on a real-world situation, but is sadly all too familiar, and can easily occur if an appropriately sized truly representative sample of the 20,000kg load is not tested at the point of intake.

Adapting to the challenges of COVID-19

by Randy Coffee, VP of Sales and Marketing, Superior Grain Equipment, US

During this difficult time, we want to assure you that Superior Grain Equipment is taking the necessary precautions and safety measures while ensuring that our sales, production and delivery services continue to operate without interruption. 


Superior has always been positioned well with production schedules to meet a late season demand for grain storage, conditioning and handling equipment, and we will continue that trend this year despite the various global challenges.  Ag producers play a key role in providing commodities for world consumption and we will continue to be here to support their operations, as we have been for decades.
 

This year, farmers around the world are facing new obstacles created from this global COVID-19 pandemic.  Coupled with challenging weather and other uncontrollable factors, it’s hard to predict what’s to come in the next few months.  That is why it’s more important now than ever before for ag producers to properly prepare for potential difficulties to come. 

Late plant/Extended harvest
Late planting seasons present many challenges. Racing the weather and not being able to get crops off is stressful enough but having them spoil due to improper storage and conditioning is worse yet. So how does one get some peace of mind when it comes to harvest time? One way is to install a grain dryer into your system. Grain dryers benefit your operation in many ways.  Most importantly you have the option of being able to get into the field sooner, which; 1) gives you a chance to harvest your entire crop before bad weather sets in, and 2) it lessens your field loss.

Drying grain is an important part of the harvesting process, especially if you plan to store your grain to market it for the best return.  On-farm solutions can be much more affordable than you think and over time can save you money.

Hamlet Protein sponsors online conference on AGP free diets

Hamlet Protein, the Denmark headquartered global supplier of specialty ingredients for young animal nutrition, sponsored a two day online technical conference in China. The China Animal Agriculture Association (CAAA) organised the event. With a focus on diet formulation without the use of anti-biotics, the conference attracted more than 400,000 attendees from academia, industry and advisory.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China is now implementing restrictions on the use of veterinary antimicrobials, as it believes that without antibiotics in animal feed, the health of animals will be better promoted, microbes' resistance to antibiotics will be lowered and food will become safer to eat. This means Chinese producers need to look for alternative ways to keep their animals healthy during the production cycle.

Erik Visser, Hamlet Protein CEO commented, 'Countries all over the world are gradually phasing out the use of anti-biotics in livestock feed. While such a change is challenging, we are convinced it will also bring opportunities for upgrading China's feed, animal health and general livestock-farming industries. Through our product portfolio, global knowledge and knowhow, we can help Chinese producers in this transition.'

Hamlet Protein hosted two sessions during the conference. 'How to use high quality protein ingredients in the AGP free and low ZnO' by Prof Piao from China Agri University and 'Application and Innovation of Hamlet Protein in AGP Free Diets' by Dr Eugene Li.

'Hamlet Protein is committed to the Chinese livestock industry. We bring a proven track record in formulating diets without AGP and ZnO from markets that have banned these substances already. Now we are ready to share our experiences and insights with the Chinese producers,' concluded Mr Visser.

Hamlet Protein produces soy-based protein ingredients for young piglet, poultry and cattle feed at two production plants in Denmark and the US.
