Georgia researchers will be sharing some of their latest research on aflatoxin and aflatoxin mitigation at the 2012 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference on June 12th, in Indianapolis, IN.
With a theme of “Back to the Grind,” CUTC will feature the cutting-edge technologies and new uses that continually improve and dynamically change the corn industry.
The conference will debut a third tier of presentation options offering participants the opportunity to hear the latest on mycotoxin research. This new offering has been added to complement the work of the Aflatoxin Mitigation Center of Excellence, which continues to emphasis the importance of developing methods to mitigate and control mycotoxin development in all phases of production and processing.
“Mycotoxins present a major obstacle for growers in many areas,” said NCGA Mycotoxin Task Force Chair Don Glenn. “We hope that by offering this opportunity we will foster an exchange of information that ultimately produces innovative ways to mitigate this threat in a more expedient manner.”
The conference will also feature sessions on wet and dry milling processes, biocatalysts, gene transformation technology, health and nutrition, unique specialty corns, new products and revenue streams and many other current topics.
