    • NIS Handling and Sorting - Processor Advances Kevin Quinlan 2 October 2012
    • We are focused on quality
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • Technology is the key 1980 20121980 State of the art computer $10,000 2012 – “Basic” smart phone - $500
    • NIS sorter
    • Results
    • PV Values of MPC Kernel by Season
    • Quality by season - MPC Saleable and Reject Kernel100%80%60% Reject40% Saleable20% 0% 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Year
    • Grower Quality by season Reject KR % No on-farm sorting, only gross rejects removed at MPC 3.5 3.0 2.5Kernel Recovery % 2.0 1.5 1.0 0.5 0.0 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Year
    • Crop Removal Amount No on-farm sorting, only gross rejects removed at MPC 17.0% 16.0% 15.0% 14.0% 13.0% 12.0% 11.0%% of crop removed 10.0% 9.0% 8.0% 7.0% 6.0% 5.0% 4.0% 3.0% 2.0% 1.0% 0.0% 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Year
    • What should you do with this?a.Throw it outb.Leave it in
    • 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???????
    • Quality is made in the paddockWe can only preserve it after that, not improve it
