NEWS DETAILS: The Artist and the Engineer: Leonardo da Vinci Revolutionized Rice Production in Italy Mar 04, 2014 Rice production in Italy has a long, interesting story, which includes the fascinating and talented Leonardo da Vinci. After his years in Florence learning sculpture and painting from Verrocchio, he was called in Milan by Duke Sforza, Ludovico il Moro.Leonardo introduced himself to the duke not just as an artist, but also as an engineer, a product of his varied genius applied toward the study everything that was around him. The duke was often in Vigevano, a city the duke wanted to change into the ideal Renaissance town; the town’s beautiful Piazza Ducale, one of the wonder of Italian Renaissance, is the consequence of his efforts. Leonardo worked for the duke in 1493-1494, visiting the countryside outside Vigevano and Lomellina, where drainage, irrigation, and hydraulic works were bustling by order of the duke, whose family started planting rice after reclaiming marshy lands. Writings by Leonardo describe the so called "Vigevano ladder” used to drain very deep marshes, which could be used for rice farming. Leonardo also made notes estimating expenses for building a canal, sketching some of the construction details. Later such a ladder was constructed and can still be seen in a channel in Vigevano rural area, lasting for centuries. Some months ago it broke down, but efforts on are underway to restore it as soon as possible.The reclaiming of marsh and woodland in the area, and likely elsewhere throughout Europe and the world, were a product of Leonardo’s original ideas.Many of them can still be seen in Mulino di Mora Bassa, in Vigevano, a special museum dedicated to water canalization and to Leonardo's revolutionary machines. In other drawings, Leonardo projected a dredging machine for “digging the earth” from the bottoms of locks and canals. The machine bore four “shovels,” moved by a crank to collect mud and deposits.His notes also Daily Rice E-Newsletter by Rice Plus Magazine www.ricepluss.com News and R&D Section firstname.lastname@example.org Cell # 92 321 369 2874
include calculations about the yields of mills, expense estimates for various parts, and sketches of gears intended to improve the mechanical operation. In addition, Leonardo recorded some of the many applications, besides agriculture, for which mills could be used.

That’s more than many premature babies weigh when they are born; with most premature babies spending the first part of their lives in an incubator, those two pounds can be hard to fathom for an older brother or sister, who might have trouble bonding with the new baby at first. A NICU program at Baylor All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, hopes to fix this and facilitate bonding between siblings. Using “rice dolls,” NICU Helping Hands works to help siblings understand the health conditions of their new family member and teaches them to be gentle and careful with him or her. Through the program, brothers and sisters of premature babies are invited to create a rice doll by filling a plain white sock with rice until it weighs the same as their brother or sister did at birth. They then swaddle the doll in a little blanket and add plastic eyes, a pacifier, and a baby hat. The children then get to take this doll with them – and many children take it everywhere with them, including to the NICU to visit the babies.NICU Helping Hands hopes that providing the children with a doll version of their sibling helps them realize just how tiny the new baby is. They realize its lightness and fragility, and often they assume a protective role over the doll.

addition to preparing the older child for the delicateness of the premature sibling, the rice dolls allow the sibling to form a connection with the new brother or sister, something that’s nearly impossible while the baby is in an incubator. They allow the children to address some of their own emotions about the new baby and its health, too, by play-acting with the doll. Some children even name the rice doll after the new baby.NICU Helping Hands has made about 120 rice dolls in the three years the program has been operating. The nonprofit organization also provides support, information, and training for new parents of premature babies.

Rough rice futures finished slightly higher as the market attempts to recover from steep losses sustained yesterday. Despite closing higher the market remains in technically bearish territory as the previous sessions move has moved prices between the lower Bollinger band and the 20-day moving average, noted at $15.210 and $15.500 per cwt (about $335 and $342 per ton) respectively. Following the losses sustained over the past week, some traders feel that the risk of further losses is limited as prices have mostly been contained to a $15.300-$15.800 per cwt (about $337-$348 per ton) trading range for the past few months. It is widely expected that price action will remain within this trading range and will likely drift higher in the coming days.

aromatic rice varieties remained mostly unchanged in February 2014, there was a sharp increase in quotations of Japonica prices due to prospects of lower production in the U.S. and Australia. The Sub-Index for Japonica varieties stood at around 266 points in February 2014, up about 13% from 236 points in the previous month.The FAO also says that rice prices showed mixed trends in February 2014.

However, prices declined in Vietnam due to lower import demand.

The Post says that a bumper crop in MY 2013-14 may cause prices to fall and consequently rice farmers may cut down on their plantings in MY 2014-15. Rice production in MY 2013-14 is estimated at 2.156 million tons, up about 3% from an estimated 2.1 million tons in MY 2012-13 due to good weather conditions and sufficient water supplies during the October-December planting season.Peru's rice imports in MY 2014-15 are forecast to increase by 20,000 tons or 9% to 240,000 tons from the estimated 220,000 tons in the MY 2013-14.

The country is planning to open its import market for U.S. paddy rice, which is banned for phyto-sanitary reasons by Peru’s sanitary authority (SENASA).The Post says that rice production in Peru is concentrated in the country's northwestern coastal region, but the government is trying to increase production along the eastern slopes of Andes. Total rice area harvested may decline to around 400,000 hectares in MY 2014-15, down about 5,000 hectares or 1% from the estimated 405,000 hectares in the MY 2013-14, which is up about 3% from 380,000 hectares in the MY 2012-13.Average rice yields in Peru are estimated at 7.82 tons per hectare, almost double the world's average yield of 4 tons per hectare.

This suggests that the Karnataka State Food Corporation (SFC) had to collect 1.3 million tons of milled rice in FY 2011-12 and around 1.22 million tons of milled rice in FY 2012-13. However, the CAG says that the SFC collected only 203,000 tons in the FY 2011-12 and 59,000 tons in the FY 201213, despite sufficient availability of rice in the state.The CAG also criticized the state government and the SFC for reducing the levy rice procurement target despite the levy order not having provisions to reduce targets for levy collection. According to sources, the Karnataka government lowered the target for levy rice to 300,000 tons in FY 2011-12 and to 350,000 tons in FY 2012-13. It further reduced the levy rice target for FY 2012-13 to 150,000 tons.

Mar 04, 2014 The Permanent Secretary of Nigeria’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) says that the government is aiming to increase paddy rice production to around 13.27 million tons by 2018 under the Coalition for African Rice Development (CARD) initiative, and an improved rice seed sector is important to meet the goal.The CARD initiative was established in 2008 with an aim of doubling rice production in SubSaharan Africa by 2018. CARD is collaboration among the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Growing Africa’s Agriculture (AGRA) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).The pilot phase of the CARD initiative involves identification of strategies to improve rice seed supply. The Technical Coordinator of the CARD Secretariat says that a stable and timely supply of quality seeds is important for increasing rice production and productivity. Most of the CARD members consider seed sector as one of the priorities to be tackled, he adds.Nigeria is soon expected to pass the National Agricultural Seed Law (NASL), which will include points such as upgradation of available seed testing laboratories to international standards, consistency in agricultural policies, increase in the annual budget of seeds, and timely release of budgetary provisions.Nigeria is aiming self-sufficiency in rice production by 2015. However, this could be a challenge for a country that imports almost 3 million tons of rice per year.
