Effective methods of removing fusarium from wheat and durum by sorting


Cigi, the University of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture would like to invite you to attend a special workshop Dec. 10th and 11th in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. The objective of this workshop is to explore ways to sort out downgraded wheat and durum with a special focus on removing fusarium damaged kernels. There will be presentations on utilizing an Optical sorter and also a new technology, called a BoMill, which sorts based on Near Infrared Transmittance (NIT). The morning of Dec. 10th will focus on results of testing the technology and the afternoon will include hands on demonstrations of the technology. On Dec. 11th there will be the option of testing either technology on small samples as provided by participants.
