EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Cereal grains play an important role in meeting the nutrient needs of the human population. Like any food, they are good to excellent sources of some nutrients and low or void in other nutrients. The vitamins content varies from one part of grain to another. The quality of cereal products is determined by a variety of characteristics which may be assigned different significance depending on the desired and use or type of product. Wheat, through the centuries, has been intimately associated with food uses for man. The usual conversion of wheat to a food product results in some proportion of kernel becoming an animal feed. The wheat milling industry produces bran, red dog, germ, and shorts and these secondary fractions amount to approximately 25% of the whole grain. Rice is one of the leading food crops of the world and is produced in all continents. It is generally considered to be a tropical crop; yields are higher in temperate areas than in the tropics. Rice is comparatively high in caloric value, N free extract, and rice protein has a fairly good balance of the essential amino acids. Rice variety is divided by grain size and shape into three types, known as short, medium and long grain rice. Historically and now through planned breeding, each grain type is associated with specific milling, cooking and processing characteristics. There are number of rice varieties of each grain type in commercial production and new ones are continually in the process of being developed and released. Barley is a crop with worldwide distribution; it is preeminent plant for the use in experimental genetic studies. Barley has a high degree of self fertilization, but is easily hybridized. Barley grain is rich in starch and sugars, relatively poor in protein and very low in fat. Corn kernels are flat seeds due to pressure during growth from adjacent kernels on the cob. They are botanically classified as a caryopsis (dry, indehiscent, single seeded fruit) and are attached to the cob by the pedicle. Corn and corn products are generally the most cost effective feeds or feed supplements available. Popcorn is undoubtedly the oldest snack food and has been consumed for centuries. The grasses known collectively as millets are a set of highly variable small seeded plant species indigenous to many areas of the world. Millets are of value especially in semiarid regions because of their short growing season and higher productivity under heat and drought conditions. Pearl millet is the most widely grown millet and is a very important crop in India. The common oat (Avena sativa) is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name (usually in the plural, unlike other grains). While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Oats make up a part of the daily diet of horses, about 20% of daily intake or smaller, and are regularly fed to cattle as well. Oats are also used in some brands of dog food and chickenfeed. Oat seeds are commonly marketed as cat grass to cat enthusiasts, since cats readily harvest and eat tender young oat, wheat, and some other grass sprouts. Sorghum is a genus of numerous species of grasses, one of which is raised for grain and many of which are used as fodder plants either cultivated or as part of pasture. The plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide. Maize, wheat and rice together accounted for 87% of all grain production worldwide, and 43% of all food calories, while the production of oats and rye have drastically fallen from their previous levels. Some of the fundamentals of the book are origin of wheat classification of wheat, endeavours to find industrial uses for wheat, criteria of wheat quality, botanical criteria of quality, milling principles, extraction rate and its effect on flour composition, grain structure as affecting grinding, definition of flour extraction stone milling: yields of products, roller milling: flour extraction rates, rice production and utilization, origin of rice, comparison of rice with other cereal grains, composition of rice and cereal, breeding rice varieties with specific, industrial uses for rice and rice by products, caryopsis and composition of rice, gross structure of the rice caryopsis and its milling fractions etc. The present book contains processing of various cereals like wheat, rice, corn, oat, barley and sorghum with latest techniques. This is very useful book of entrepreneurs, agriculturists, researchers and professionals.

Growing Grain Sorghums In The San Antonio District Of Texas

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"A shortage of grain feed is a common occurrence on the farms in the San Antonio district of Texas. This results from planting an insufficient acreage of grain crops and from the fact that farmers rely too much upon Indian corn for grain production. Corn produces a relatively small yield per acre under conditions existing in this district and a complete failure of the crop often occurs. A grain crop that is more dependable than corn is urgently needed. Experiments at the San Antonio Field Station during the past eight years indicate the possibility of making grain sorghum a successful crop in that district. Grain sorghum is a much surer crop in unfavorable years than corn, and it yields fully as much feed in favorable years. The principal reason why grain sorghum has not been more extensively planted in this district is its frequent failure to produce grain, due to blasting or sterility. This blasting is caused by a small gnatlike fly, the sorghum midge. The results of the observations and experiments at San Antonio show that by using early varieties and special cultural methods sorghum can be made a dependable grain crop in spite of the midge. The points of special significance to be observed are early seeding and the use of quick-maturing varieties."--Page 2.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Field experiments were conducted in 2016 and 2017 across nine locations in Kansas to develop and evaluate a procedure for variable-rate applications (VRA) of soil-applied herbicides in corn and grain sorghum based on soil properties. Soil electrical conductivity (EC) and soil organic matter (SOM) data were collected at each location using a Veris MSP3. Soil EC was correlated to soil texture and herbicide algorithms were developed for two different tank-mixes for corn and for grain sorghum. Three algorithms were evaluated in the field for each tank-mix based only on SOM (alg-SOM), SOM and soil texture (alg-SOMtex), or a flat rate based on the average soil properties for the entire field. Rates for each tank-mix were based on the maximum usage rate (MUR) allowed. When soil variability across a field was adequate, VRA based on algorithms were effective at five of the nine locations. Across these five locations, alg-SOM resulted in the same or better weed control at 8 weeks after treatment (WAT) compared to the flat rate and reduced herbicide use by 12% for both tank-mixes in grain sorghum. Using alg-SOMtex reduced herbicide use by 24% in grain sorghum, but had less weed control at several locations compared to the flat rate. VRA was practical at Morganville, KS in 2017. Both alg-SOM and alg-SOMtex increased the amount of herbicide applied compared to the flat rate, but alg-SOMtex resulted in greater Palmer amaranth control (92%) compared to the flat rate (71%). Separate greenhouse and field experiments were conducted in 2017 to evaluate the activity of soil-applied herbicides on controlling HPPD-inhibitor resistant Palmer amaranth populations. A dose-response greenhouse experiment of soil-applied mesotrione and isoxaflutole was performed using resistant (Stafford County) and susceptible (Riley County) Palmer amaranth populations. Reduced susceptibility was observed with resistant-to-susceptible ratios being 7.2 for mesotrione and 4.1 for isoxaflutole. Field experiments were conducted at two locations in KS with one field having HPPD-resistant (Barton County) and the other HPPD-susceptible (Reno County) Palmer amaranth populations. Treatments were three HPPD-inhibiting herbicides [mesotrione (1⁄4X, 1⁄2X, and 1X = 210 g ha−1), isoxaflutole (1⁄2X and 1X = 105 g ha−1), and bicyclopyrone (1X = 50 g ha-1 and 2X in formulated tank-mix with bromoxynil at 700 and 1400 g ha-1)] in comparison to other soil-applied herbicides commonly used for Palmer amaranth control. HPPD-inhibitor treatments were applied alone and tank-mixed with atrazine (2240 g ha−1). Overall, control of Palmer amaranth was reduced for HPPD-resistant compared to -susceptible populations. All treatments of mesotrione and isoxaflutole at 4 WAT resulted in 81 to 99% control in Reno County, but only 55 to 89% control in Barton County. For mesotrione and isoxaflutole treatments across both sites, Palmer amaranth control at 4 WAT was greater when 1X was applied (89%) compared to 0.5X (81%). Tank-mixing atrazine with mesotrione and isoxaflutole increased Palmer amaranth control from 82 to 88%. Soil-applied HPPD-inhibitors were most effective when applied at field usage rate in combination with atrazine for both populations. When using soil-applied HPPD-inhibitors, management recommendations should be the same regardless of Palmer amaranth population.
