Salish Blue is just one variety of a new perennial grain species, -Tritipyrum aaseae. It’s the first new species to be named by wheat breeders at WSU in 122 years of breeding. Colin Curwen-McAdams, a graduate research assistant at the WSU Bread Lab at Mount Vernon, and Stephen Jones, wheat breeder and director of the lab, describe development of the species in a recent issue of Buhler, Inc. and K-State University IGP Institute to Offer Export Milling Course in English and Spanish Tue, 10 Jan 2017 10:03:14 EST http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Buhler__Inc__and_K_State_University_IGP_Institute_to_Offer_Export_Milling_Course_in_English_and_Spanish-163997.html http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Buhler__Inc__and_K_State_University_IGP_Institute_to_Offer_Export_Milling_Course_in_English_and_Spanish-163997.html Buhler, Inc. will team up with Kansas State University's IGP Institute in March to offer expert milling courses. One of these trainings will be offered in Spanish. Leading off is the Buhler-KSU Expert Milling English course set for March 6-10, 2017 at the IGP Institute Conference Center in Manhattan, Kansas. The following week IGP will host the Buhler-KSU Expert Milling course in Spanish on March 13-17, 2017. "This course is designed for experienced millers to gain a better understanding of their processes.

The FDA-compliant additives impart metal detectability, x-ray contrast and magnetic susceptibility when added to plastic moldings. Incorporating these additives can prevent plastic contaminated food products from reaching the consumer. Eriez provides PolyMag additives in a non-dusting pellet, allowing molders and extruders to produce metal detectable and x-ray visible plastic items used for food contact applications, such as pallets. “One of Kansas Wheat CEO Justin Gilpin Shares Wheat Quality Data in South Asian Seminars Wed, 28 Dec 2016 10:16:23 EST http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Kansas_Wheat_CEO_Justin_Gilpin_Shares_Wheat_Quality_Data_in_South_Asian_Seminars-163759.html http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Kansas_Wheat_CEO_Justin_Gilpin_Shares_Wheat_Quality_Data_in_South_Asian_Seminars-163759.html Wheat buyers, millers and processors in South Asia have a better understanding of the quality of this year's hard red winter wheat crop, thanks to U.S. Wheat Associates' (USW) annual Crop Quality Seminars. Kansas Wheat CEO Justin Gilpin presented U.S. hard red winter wheat quality information at the seminars that were held from November 9-22, in Manila, Philippines; Cebu, Philippines; Jakarta, Indonesia; Bangkok, Thailand; and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
