Improvised gas collection device detects the leakage and blockage of halters and canisters and monitored in real time gas collection.

The ICAR-National Institute of Animal Nutrition and Physiology, Bengaluru commercialized a patent applied technology ‘An Improved Device for Collection and Measurement of Enteric Methane Emission in Ruminants’ to InayatUllah Engineering Works (IEW), Bengaluru on 28th July 2022.

 Dr Raghavendra Bhatta, Director, ICAR-NIANP, Bengaluru and InyatUllah Shariff, CEO M/s InayatUllah Engineering Works (IEW) signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) on behalf of their respective Organizations for the licensing to manufacture and sell the improvised gas collection device.

SF6 technique consider the exhale of methane and sulfur hexafluoride gases from the rumen with an identical probability of interception by a breath sampler located near the nasal cavity. One of those two gases is purposeful tracer SF6, which has a known release rate; while the release of other gas (methane) is under investigation. Thus, the concentration ratio of those gases in breath sample, accumulated over a feeding cycle can be equated to the ratio of their release rates. The SF6 assembly include gas collection vessel, halters, and gas chromatography.

 Gas collection vessel is one of the important and integral components used for the collection and accumulation of 24 hr breath gas sample. The minimum duration of gas collection in SF6 is 5-6 days; however, practically it takes about 12-15 days for the collection of minimum 5-6 successful samples. Therefore, only 40-50% of the gas collection is successful and remaining 50-60% unsuccessful collection is attributed to the leakage and blockage of halter components, breakage, leakage, and blockage of canisters. This uncertainty leads to the huge time loss, manpower wastage, prolonging of the study duration, gas losses etc.

 Keeping the above demerits of the existing assembly in view, ICAR-NIANP has developed the improvised gas collection device which detect the leakage and blockage of halters and canisters and monitored in real time gas collection. The advantages of using the improvised gas collection device are a) 100% successful gas collection, b) No breakage of the gas collection canisters, c) Detect immediate gas leakage and blockage from the assembly, d) Monitor real time gas collection, e) Avoid the unnecessary prolonging of animal experimentation, f) Save manpower, feed cost and additional gaseous in GC and g) Ensures uniform N2 dilution.

This first California order officially starts BVT’s launch stage in strawberry and raspberry market in US.

Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. has announced its closing of the first California sales order of its proprietary Vectorite with CR-7 (Clonostachys rosea CR-7) biological fungicide and natural precision agriculture system with a strawberry and raspberry grower for one of the world’s largest berry companies.

This first California order officially starts BVT’s Launch Stage in this important market. The grower will use BVT’s proprietary Vectorite with CR-7 biological fungicide and natural precision agriculture system on a portion of strawberry and raspberry crop acres.

“This first sale milestone is a key component of BVT’s strategy to expand into the state of California, which is the largest growing region and our most significant market opportunity in North America,” said Ashish Malik, CEO of BVT. “The opportunity in California includes several crops with an overall growing season which spans up to 10 months of the year, thus representing significantly larger and more diversified annual revenue streams for BVT.”

“The customer is a large, influential grower in the Watsonville and Salinas area,” said Ian Collinson, Sales Manager at BVT. “Their successful three-month demonstration trial of the BVT system last year and the resulting positive data were the main reasons for the customer to continue their business with BVT. Trial results showed the BVT system helped control fungal disease during the bloom period, which lead to healthier berries post-harvest that translated into real value for the berry company in higher quality packed berries and increased marketable yield.”

“The trial, which was also closely followed by the berry company, clearly showed the BVT system’s high return on investment. ROI’s of 6x or higher are the expectation by growers for agricultural input technologies in specialty crops like berries. Our recent work is demonstrating ROI for the BVT system of 10x or higher, and this is driving conversion of new customers to our system,” continued Mr. Collinson. “This led to this year’s sales order which was for a portion of the grower’s operation and is larger than we typically see in the first year, thus signalling the value and confidence the grower has in our technology.”

BVT continues to work closely with the grower to potentially expand the order to apply the Company’s system to their blueberry crop by this fall season, which could mean extending their BVT usage to eight months of the year, and with the berry company to introduce the system to their other growers.

California is the country’s largest berry market with an estimated 55,000(1) acres of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries representing 30% of the berry acreage in the US. As a 100% organic product delivered 100% naturally, the BVT system dovetails perfectly into the California market, controlling disease and increasing yield while being exempt from residue testing requirements.

Bayer CS registered an expansion of business in North America and Asia/Pacific.

The Bayer Group achieved substantial growth in the second quarter of 2022. “We delivered strong operational performance. In terms of sales, we posted significant gains at Crop Science and strong growth at Consumer Health, as well as a slight increase at Pharmaceuticals, too. And with EBITDA before special items, we even achieved growth of 30 percent,” said Werner Baumann, Chairman of the Board of Management, on Thursday while presenting the company’s half-year financial report. “In view of our good business performance and higher growth expectations, we have raised our full-year guidance,” he explained.

In the agricultural business (Crop Science), Bayer increased sales by 17.2 percent (Fx & portfolio adj.) to 6.461 billion euros, driven by a substantial improvement in the market environment. The division recorded double-digit percentage growth in Latin America and Europe/Middle East/Africa, and also registered an expansion of business in North America and Asia/Pacific. Herbicides posted the strongest growth, at 51.3 percent (Fx & portfolio adj.), with sales rising particularly in Latin and North America, as well as in Europe/Middle East/Africa as a result of prices for glyphosate-based products remaining high. Sales at Corn Seed & Traits advanced by 9.5 percent (Fx & portfolio adj.), mainly due to price increases in North America, Europe/Middle East/Africa and Latin America. In addition, volumes expanded in all regions except North America. Sales at Fungicides rose by 4.3 percent (Fx & portfolio adj.), with growth in all regions except North America, where volumes declined as a result of unfavorable weather conditions. Soybean Seed & Traits saw sales decline by 16.1 percent (Fx & portfolio adj.), largely due to the significant reduction in sales from overproduction in North America and the unit’s withdrawal from the Argentinian market.

EBITDA before special items at Crop Science climbed by 71.8 percent to 1.749 billion euros. The growth in earnings was mainly driven by the substantial improvement in business performance, as well as contributions from ongoing efficiency programs. There was also a positive currency effect of 215 million euros (Q2 2021: minus 111 million euros). By contrast, earnings were diminished by an increase in costs, particularly in the cost of goods sold, which was mainly due to high inflation. The EBITDA margin before special items rose by 6.8 percentage points to 27.1 percent.

In the past 10 years, Project Unnati has helped empower and enable over 350,000 lakh fruit farmers across 12 states in India.

Coca-Cola India has announced a decade of successful implementation of its Project Unnati. The project is part of Coca-Cola’s Fruit Circular Economy initiative, which is a key pillar of the Company’s ESG priorities – Sustainable Agriculture. Project Unnati aims to support the Indian agri-ecosystem by enhancing farming efficiency, strengthening forward linkages, and building food-processing capacity in the country. In the past 10 years, Project Unnati has helped empower and enable over 350,000 lakh fruit farmers across 12 states in India. Focused on five fruit varieties Mango, Apple, Orange, Grapes, Litchi, and sugarcane, the program is aimed at propelling the horticulture supply-chain and building agriculture production capacities across the country.

The adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) through Unnati projects across Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh has accelerated fruit productivity by 5X via Ultra high-density fruit plantation technology. Furthermore, Coca-Cola’s ‘Meetha Sona Unnati’ program seeks to address challenges faced by small-scale sugarcane farmers, enhance their livelihoods, and promote climate-resilient sugarcane farming.

The projects also facilitate farmers’ access to enabling infrastructure via high-yielding planting material and Good Agriculture Practices (GAPS) such as ultra-high-density plantation (UHDP) which involves drip irrigation, on-site training, and farm supplement support. These new technologies lead to a substantial increase in quality, productivity, and profitability per unit of land which further makes fruit cultivation lucrative.

Rajesh Ayapilla – Director-CSR and Sustainability for India and Southwest Asia (INSWA) at The Coca-Cola Company said, “Farmers are the backbone of the Indian agrarian economy. Through project Unnati, our aim has been to elevate and enhance the livelihoods of these farmers by not only enabling them with advanced horticulture solutions, but also empowering them to substantially increase their incomes.”

Coca-Cola India took the first step towards creating a Fruit Circular Economy in India in 2011 with ‘Project Unnati Mango’ in Andhra Pradesh. The program then expanded to Unnati Orange in the year 2018 in Maharashtra, followed by Unnati Apple in Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and eventually into Litchi and grapes over a decade. The initiative has been widely applauded by State Governments of India.
