NCGA Enters Licensing Agreement With Pioneer Hi-Bred.
According to NCGA, Pioneer's high total fermentable (HTF) near infrared (NIR) rapid assay system quantifies the ethanol yield potential of corn grain during the dry-grind process. NCGA said it plans to conduct research with the system to devise a single grain assay standard for corn growers and the ethanol industry.
"One standardized platform would be a key step toward making the process more consistent for farmers, while at the same time optimizing the efficiency of ethanol plants," said NCGA president Leon Corzine. "NCGA is in a position to help ensure growers, ethanol producers and seed companies are all on the same page when it comes to quantifying the ethanol yield potential of corn."
