Nakesh Jindal, press secretary,Punjab Rice Millers Association, said this whileaddressing mediapersons.

  3. 3. therehad been no response from the Union Government.Jindal said paddy, which had been stored with riceshellers, had started rotting and migratory labourers, having become idle following thestrike, were considering to return to their home states if immediate solution to theproblem was not found. He said in the interest of food security and labour, it was necessarythat immediate action was taken by the government and genuine demands ofthe rice millers were met. He said in view of inclement weather conditions, the decisionin this regard should be taken at the earliest so that grains were not damaged. RiceTec stepping up research efforts with new hybrids and varietal lines for Rice Belt Dec. 24, 2013 RiceTec announced a new $150-million research effort aimed at new hybrids, new varieties and new herbicidetolerant rice. The announcement came during the New Products Session at USA Rice Outlook Conference in St. Louis.Based in Houston, Texas, RiceTec is also planning to add more scientists and technical service representatives to its field staff to help growers learn more about its products, according to Brian Ottis, marketing and client support manager at RiceTec.RiceTec will introduce two new hybrids – XP760 and XP757 – on a limited basis in 2014. ―XL760 builds on the advantages of XL723, similar yield, similar quality with the biggest improvement in grain retention so we reduce the risk at harvest of shattering due to inclement weather,‖ Ottis said in an interview following the New Products Session at the conference. ―We will also have XP757 available on an extremely limited basis this year. It is our first non-pubescent hybrid. There is always an association with hybrids and abrasiveness on equipment and itch associated with the dust. This is non-pubescent so that will not be an issue. We’re seeing improved grain length, improved grain clarity with 757, and we’re seeing yield that is increased over 723.‖Ottis said RiceTec has other hybrids in the pipeline that ―will eliminate or dispel the rumors about quality in the hybrid platform,‖ he said. ―We can produce quality in a hybrid platform as far as grain clarity. These hybrids have improved amylose content. They have extremely long grain length, a 3.2 length-to-grain-width ratio, which is highly desired by the mills and the export industry.‖ Daily Rice E-Newsletter by Rice Plus Magazine www.ricepluss.com News and R&D Section mujajhid.riceplus@gmail.com Cell # 92 321 369 2874
  4. 4. RiceTec believes those products will fit not only in the broader commodity market but also in niche markets such as parboiling and RTS types. ―So we’re really excited about those products, which will also be nonpubescent with good grain retention.‖Ottis said RiceTec scientists are also looking at proprietary herbicide tolerance traits they have discovered that have demonstrated resistance to new, multiple modes of action in rice.―These will be new additions that will give growers the opportunity to rotate them with the Clearfield technology to mitigate outcrossing as well as herbicide resistance in weed populations with the ALS herbicies. As a weed scientist having the opportunity to look at some of these things is very exciting.‖RiceTec also is working with some varietal lines that offer improved quality over Chenniere and other high quality rice.

  5. 5. UNISAME president said due to the lack of focus and persuasion by earlier governments, the Indian rice lobby prevailed. PHOTO: CREATIVE COMMON KARACHI: The Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (UNISAME) has urged the Secretary Ministry of Commerce (MINCOM) to take serious notice of the statement and propagation of the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Development Authority (APEDA) APEDA, a statuary body of India to the geographical indication (GI) of Basmati, is restricting it to the areas best suited to them and curtailing the areas in Pakistan based on merit.President UNISAME Zulfikar Thaver pointed out that aromatic basmati rice is grown in many areas of Pakistan and the basmati grown in these areas possesses the inherent unique characteristics and features of Basmati rice and any restrictions to its declaration and definition based on merit would amount to undermining its worth.He said due to the lack of focus and persuasion by the earlier governments, the Indian rice lobby prevailed. Published in The Express Tribune, December 25th, 2013. Red yeast rice compound could help curb diabetes CNA December 26, 2013, 12:13 am TWN TAIPEI -- A Taiwanese research team has published a paper in the science magazine Food & Function in which it says that a substance found in red yeast rice, or monascus, could play an important role in curbing diabetes.Among the 24 compounds the team identified from the product —long a staple of Chinese traditional medicine — 11 were first discovered by the scientists, with the ingredient monascin appearing the most effective in controlling diabetes.Pan Tzu-ming, a National Taiwan University professor and leader of the team, said further clinical trials on human are being carried out by National Sun Yat-sen University and the results could be available in six months. The team discovered that monascin inhibits inflammation and improves insulin resistance, and could therefore help diabetics better control their disease.Monascin is not cheap, however, Pan said, costing some NT$11.62 million (US$387,000) per gram.It is possible that monascin could be used in health products to treat Alzheimer's disease or metabolism-related diseases, but it might take more than a decade to commercialize such products, he added.According to government statistics, Taiwan has 1.56 million people being treated for diabetes.Pan said that by 2030, the population suffering from diabetes will have reached 366 million around the world, more than double the number in 2000.
