Quality and handling nis handling and sorting – processor advances - kevin quinlan

  1. 1. NIS Handling and Sorting - Processor Advances Kevin Quinlan 2 October 2012
  2. 2. We are focused on quality
  3. 3. On-farm sorting trials 2.00%Kernel Recovery (%) 1.50% 1.00% 0.50% 0.00% After dehuskFirstfirst sort and sort Second Sort After Storage and resort
  4. 4. Weight of Purely Reject NIS (kg) removed per 1000 TKR kg of NIS to reduce the reject level by 1%25.00%26.00% Reject NIS 40 quality 3827.00% 3728.00% 3629.00% 3430.00% 3331.00% 3232.00% 3133.00% 3034.00% 2935.00% 2936.00% 2837.00% 2738.00% 2639.00% 26
  5. 5. It’s all about speed….• Speed from the tree to being packed• While growers are “sorting for quality” they are potentially degrading shelf-life through:• Holding NIS in inadequate storage facilities• Sorting while they could harvest• Spending money that may not need to be eg gas, electricity, wages
  6. 6. How to do it fast!• We developed a system that allows growers to deliver with some husk, trash, FM and gross rejects (within limits) to achieve speed

  15. 15. Conclusion• Focus on consumer quality• Technology has allowed us to do more• Growers are seeing a 10-15c/kg saving in on farm costs by using the full system• Plus increased production per hectare• How much kernel have we as an industry lost over the years???????????• How much shelf-life have we lost over the years???????
  16. 16. Quality is made in the paddockWe can only preserve it after that, not improve it
