US Wheat Associates Crop Quality Seminar

by Rebecca Sherratt, Production editor, Milling & Grain

On Monday 12th November 2018, at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel in London, UK, the US Wheat Associates (USW) presented their annual Crop Quality Seminar to a group of millers, bakers and national food industry figureheads.

The three-hour conference discussed a variety of contemporary issues surrounding wheat, not just of American origin, but at an international capacity. The event provided vital feedback on the outlook for the six types of US wheat (hard red winter, hard white, hard red spring, soft red winter, soft white and durum), along with how they have performed under market conditions. The conference was hosted 41 times in total, in 28 different countries.
 


The conference consisted of three speakers, the first of whom being Mr Ian Flagg, Regional Vice-President of the USW, who introduced the event and discussed in depth the elephant in the room: the Chinese tariffs on US imports, and how this has affected US soybean stocks.

Following this, USW’s Regional Marketing Director for Europe, Mr Rutger Koekoek, gave a detailed overview on the world’s wheat supply and demand. Systematically analysing key countries in the wheat industry one-by-one, Mr Koekoek informed attendees on 2018 market conditions, and the USW’s predictions for 2019 wheat prices and production rates.

To conclude the event, Mr Jim Peterson, Policy and Marketing Director of the North Dakota Wheat Commission, focused more upon US hard red spring and durum wheat crops, delivering an attractive proposal to suppliers and shippers in the audience, concerning the benefits of US wheat.

The audience, consisting of a variety of industry colleagues, including members of the National Association of British and Irish Millers (NABIM), Frontier Agriculture, Whitworth Bros, Allied Milling and Baking and much more, listened attentively to the discussions presented, and were given the opportunity to ask questions and explore topics further, in the delightful lunch following the conference.

Nitrogen in silos keeps the grain quality high and pests and residues away!

by Dr Manjree Agarwal, Murdoch University, Western Australia

The grain industry worldwide is highly dependant on fumigants for controlling stored grain pests, which cause about 15-20 percent of losses every year.

The most commonly used fumigants are phosphine and methyl bromide, of which methyl bromide has been phased out after the Montreal protocol (a 1987 agreement to limit the use of ozone-depleting gases), and excessive usage of phosphine has resulted in a resistance problem with many stored grain pest species.
 


There is, therefore, a problem with currently used fumigants: there is no ideal fumigant as many are flammable and have high mammalian toxicity, and the choice of possible new fumigants for grain is very restricted. Even if an alternative fumigant were selected, the lengthy, time-consuming testing and registration procedures would present a formidable barrier to its adoption and usage.

Hence, there is an urgent need for a non-chemical method for effective, safe, and cheap control of stored grain pests, which does not have any registration requirements. Modified Atmosphere (MA) or Controlled Atmosphere (CA) is one of the answers to this problem.

MA involves the alteration of natural gases used in storage, such as carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen, to create a lethal condition for pests. This has been practiced for centuries and has been promoted in recent years as a biorational substitute for chemical fumigants. Sometimes, in the use of controlled atmospheres, the cost of the gas may be a hindrance to adoption.

Carbon dioxide has been used as a viable alternative to phosphine for the control of insects attacking stored products; but CO2 is efficient only when concentrations higher than 40 percent are maintained for long periods, and so, in the long run, it becomes an expensive affair.

In that respect, N2 (nitrogen) for use in low O2 (oxygen) treatments is less expensive and can be generated from ambient air (which has close to 80 percent concentration of nitrogen), via use of membrane-adsorption technology.

Replacing oxygen with nitrogen not only helps in killing some of the stored grain pests but is also cheap, safe to both humans and the environment, with no registration requirement. It also maintains the natural quality of grain and pulses, including the colour, which is one of the important attributes for pulses and beans. This creates a win-win situation in all different scenar

Fumigation with CO2: Considerations for a controlled atmosphere for pest control

by Blaine Timlick, Canadian Grain Commission, Canada

The fumigation of bulk commodities, such as grains, has been performed for a century and the requirements for such treatments are increasing. Changing demographics of insect pests into new host ranges, increased commodity production, climate change, increased demand for reduced pesticide use and evolution of insects that are tolerant or resistant to specific pest control products has resulted in the investigation and use of alternate gases.


Of the naturally occurring gases abundant in the environment, CO2 has been the most investigated and is now registered in a number of countries as an alternate fumigant for pest control.
 


CO2 was discovered to impact insect pests at low levels in grain as early as 1972, where it was discovered that a CO2 concentration increase of as little as one percent could induce a spiracle (breathing tubes) opening response and most insect species responded at concentration changes of between two-to-five percent. At concentrations of CO2 where spiracles remain open for elongated periods, insects perish from lack of oxygen and/or desiccation due to water loss.

Through the 1970’s and 80’s, investigations studied application methods, as there were requirements to determine appropriate methods for generating the gas, the appropriate concentrations to cause effective mortality and techniques for effective application.

Methods such as application of dry ice, purging with gas and blending with air or nitrogen all proved effective. Of these methods, purging the bin from the bottom that forces atmospheric gases out of the bin has proven to be one of the most efficient methods and is what is employed currently in many situations where CO2 is used in pest control.

In using this method, bin preparation and sealing is crucial. Appropriate sealing is an obvious requirement, as the structure enclosing the grain needs to be able to retain the gas with minimal leakage. This can be partially accomplished by using sealant products (foams, membrane and sealing paints, tapes, etc) and applying them to areas where potential leakage can occur (vents, cracks, seams).

Performing this with diligence can assist in improving the maintenance of the gas concentration. However, gas concentrations require constant monitoring, as the effects of wind on larger structures will deplete the concentration. Once sealing is completed, performing a pressure test of the bin will provide information of how well the bin was sealed and, therefore, how effective the fumigation might be.

Fumigation using aluminum phosphide

by Dick Bigler and Slade Baker, Douglas Products Inc, USA

Maintaining grain quality from grain-infesting insects is a never-ending challenge. To help, Milling & Grain asked two industry professionals from Douglas Products to share their experience using aluminium phosphide fumigant to protect stored grain. Next month, Milling & Grain will publish part two, the use of sulfuryl fluoride fumigant.

 


Why is fumigation important?
Baker: We all want — and food regulations require — safe and nutritious food. Grain-infesting insects are a leading threat to grain quality. Fumigation is an important and proven means to eliminate target pests in grain and other commodities as well as pest harbourages in the storage facility.

Fumigation is a word I hear mistakenly used to refer to fogging treatments. It’s true that both are used to control pests in a space, but what fogging does is use application equipment to generate insecticide particles into the air as a smoke, fog or mist. With a fogging treatment, insecticide is suspended into the air, but the insecticide only penetrates grain or insect harbourages to a limited degree in the structure and targets adult and immature stages.

Depending upon airflow, equipment used, and applicator skill, the insecticide may not even reach all the intended treatment areas. In contrast, with fumigation the gas molecules will diffuse throughout the enclosed space and penetrate to reach pests in grain and harbourages. Fumigation is lethal to all life stages of target pests when the proper concentration of the gas is held over the necessary exposure time.

Bigler: I would add that fumigation is highly important both as prevention and infestation treatment, now that grain is being stored longer and longer. In some areas, grain is being stored for multiple years. So, over time you might put into storage a certain grade factor, which does not automatically assume it will have that same grade factor when the grain is removed from the structure. Running aeration fans helps stabilise grain, but you also need to monitor for heat, moisture and manage pests.
