Surfacing new uses for corn critical to long-term viability of farmers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Increasing demand for corn and corn farmer profitability is key to the National Corn Growers Association’s mission, and this was clearly evident at the recent meeting of NCGA’s Corn Productivity & Quality Action Team (CPQAT).Farmer team members from across the U.S. discussed several potential avenues for finding new uses for corn to drive demand. Potential areas of focus are new food uses for corn, new plant-based chemicals from corn and more specifically using corn as a feedstock to replace chemicals currently manufactured from petroleum.“Developing new uses for corn is nothing novel. It has always been important. Within the last 20 years, fuel ethanol went from being a new use for corn to our second largest market.  And look at the impact that has had on farmer profitability,” said Larry Hoffmann, chairman of the CPQAT. “But trying to keep corn use ahead of our growing productive capacity is a never-ending challenge. We are currently exploring the concept of an open innovation contest as a way to engage researchers to drive corn use.”Open Innovation focuses on uncovering new ideas or new applications of corn. This process allows us to look beyond our normal research networks and find new applications. Projects uncovered through the open innovation process may be eligible for financial support or other in-kind activities to accelerate them through the research phase and into commercial production.last_img read more

Mono for Android Open for Developer Testing

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Mono for Android, aka MonoDroid, has just launched its Android preview program. MonoDroid, for those unaware, is a development stack for using C# and core .NET APIs to develop Android-based applications. It will be a commercial product in the future, like Mono for iPhone (“MonoTouch”) is now. sarah perez The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts According to project head Miguel de Icaza, “all the embarrassing bugs” have now been fixed, and the platform is available for testing by anyone interested in doing so. On his personal blog, de Icaza noted that the project uses a library profile that is better suited for mobile devices. That means they removed features that are not necessary, he says, like the entire System.Configuration stack, just as Silverlight does.“In addition to bringing the core ECMA VM to Android,” ?wrote de Icaza. “We bound the entire set of Android Dalvik APIs to C# and in the process C#-ified them. This includes using C# properties for metadata (less XML config file messing around), exposing C# events, C# properties, strongly typed generic types where necessary, implicit conversions where needed, using the C# API style, IEnumerable where appropriate (to let you LINQ over your Dalvik, and we turn IIterable into IEnumerables for you).”Mono for Android also offers the following:The same OpenTK library popular among .NET developers on Windows, Linux, iPhone, allowing you to share the same OpenGL logic across platforms.Support for the full JIT (unlike iOS)Templates for C# (but other .NET compilers should work, if they reference MonoDroid’s libraries).Last, but certainly not least, MonoDroid is now supported on Mac OS X. Developers can get started with testing Mono for Android here. Tags:#Android#mobile#news last_img read more
