Canada: CWB sums up results of the 2008-09 crop year

The Canadian Wheat Board summed up the results of the crop year ending July, 31 a day earlier.

CWB president and CEO Ian White said the 2008-09 crop year was marked by record bulk exports of Prairie malting barley (1.5 mln tonnes) at record prices for producers.

"The strength and stability of the Canadian grain industry has been a bright spot in the gloomy economic environment over the past year," White said at the CWB's annual crop year-end news conference. The CWB exported about 18.5 million tonnes (MT) of wheat, durum and barley during the crop year, the highest volume since 1999-2000 and up over a million tonnes from last year. CWB net revenue, returned directly to farmers, is estimated at more than C$6 billion – second only to last year's C$7.2 billion.

However, CWB board chair Larry Hill cautioned that poor weather across the Prairies continues to create concern for the 2009 crop. "Looking ahead, it is now quite certain that drought and cold weather will take a toll," said Hill, who farms near Swift Current, SK. "We will need near-perfect weather for the rest of the growing season and into the fall to preserve the quality of this year's crop."

Scientific Digest

Accumulation and Release of Metal Ions by Brewer`s Yeast During Successive Fermentations

Poreda Aleksander, Antkiewicz Piotr, Tuszynski Tadeusz and Malgorzata Makarewicz

J. Inst. Brew. 115(1), 78–83, 2009 Magnesium, zinc and calcium are the elements that are involved in the regulation of metabolic activity of yeast and/or other processes such as flocculation and cell division. The requirements for specific ions may be subject to changes in successive fermentations performed by the same biomass. The aim of this work was to analyze the changes in calcium, magnesium and zinc concentration in malt broth (9°P) and in the yeast over four successive fermentations. For all ionic species analysed, the qualitative uptake and release patterns observed during subsequent fermentations were similar. In the lag phase of the fermentation, yeast cells accumulated the metal ions under investigation, in order to liberate them later to an extent that depended on the specific metal and fermentation number. Some differences were noted when qualitative comparison of these processes was performed. During the first fermentation with the yeast culture, the maximum content of each ion in the yeast biomass was twoto threefold higher than in the subsequent fermentations. Calcium, magnesium and zinc levels in the biomass did not exceed 1, 6 and 0.6 mg/g yeast dry weight respectively. Key words: bioaccumulation, brewer’s yeast, calcium, magnesium, metal ions, release, zinc. Load full article, 6 pages, 447 kb , PDF file
