Default Boost your AG efficiency


A team of Iowa State researchers has demonstrated that pre-treating milled corn with ultrasonics can break the corn pieces into even finer particles. That exposes more of the corn's starch to the enzymes that convert starch to simple sugars. The research team also plans to see if ultrasonics releases some sugars from the fibrous, cellulosic material in corn.

Grewell said ultrasonic treatment in laboratory experiments has increased corn's release rates of sugars by nearly 30 percent.

Standby for Coors Ultrasonic ... lite.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
