Oct. 18: The National Corn Growers Association has finalized its agenda for the 2014 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference (CUTC), to be held June 2-4 in Louisville, Ky.
Presentations will feature new uses and products, inputs, processing and biorefinery advances in wet and dry grinding. The conference session topics will address genetics, biotechnology, grain quality and mycotoxin research. There will be additional sessions covering new technologies and products from wet and dry processing, enzyme technology, and products from biorefineries. Attendees can also expect to hear presentations on new starch uses, resistant starch and nutrition, biopolymers and higher valued products such as nutraceuticals.
“CUTC is critical for the sustainability of the corn industry,” said NCGA Research and Business Development Action Team Chair Tom Mueller. “CUTC creates opportunities for people who have common interests to exchange ideas. We will be facilitating the next ground-breaking technologies and the markets of the future.”
The Gary Lamie Graduate Student Poster Competition will showcase the latest student research and provide students an opportunity to network and advance their careers.
