Ongoing supply chain and shipping delays are giving Napa Valley business leaders something to “vine” as a cork shortage and rising costs choke the industry.

Portocork, one of the world’s largest wine cork harvesting and processing companies, has 138 million corks stranded at sea on shipping containers, according to its CEO.

But the most “enormous” pressure would come from rising shipping rates, with the cost of transferring a single container from Portugal to Oakland, California, rising from $2,500 to $14,000.

“The biggest challenge we face is just the shipping line,” Dustin Mowe told Kelly O’Grady of FOX Business, “and then tremendous pressure to be able to say to customers, ‘Sorry, we can’t ship for another month or several weeks.'”

AMERICAN AIRLINES RESUMES ALCOHOL SERVICE ON CERTAIN FLIGHTS

Mowe noted that without the ability to provide wineries with their cork inventory, it could impact national supply.

Supply chain and shipping delays are adding “tremendous” pressure to the Napa Valley wine region, Portocork’s CEO said on “Varney & Co.” On Wednesday, as the industry also faces shortages of cork, bottles, seeds and fertilizer. (Stock)

“This has a huge impact on our ability to supply,” continued Portocork’s CEO.

Recent shutdowns in China are also raising global market and labor concerns, further endangering Napa Valley’s $34 billion wine industry.

In addition to supply chain disruptions, the US wine country has also experienced shortages of bottles, seeds, fertilizers and worsening drought over the past year.

“It’s millions of dollars of investments that these people have made over many generations, so hopefully it will be resolved soon,” said Dr. Kaan Kurtural, a viticulture specialist at the University of California Davis, previously said on “Cavuto: Coast to Coast.”

Some winemakers and distributors have decided to leave California altogether and take on Midwestern wineries, like Hoffman Family of Companies founders David and Jerri Hoffman, who hope to invest $100 million to transform the relatively small Missouri wine region. into a tourist destination.

“We’re very excited about what’s happening and how quickly we’ve been able to assemble these vineyards,” Hoffman told FOX Business’ Grady Trimble last May. “We think people locally have responded very well, and we see an opportunity to consolidate the vineyards and produce our grapes and distribute them nationally. »

Cars cannot run on solar power indefinitely, at least not normal cars using today’s solar power technology. Indeed, today’s best photovoltaic cells, even if they covered the entire exterior of a car, are not efficient enough to create the energy needed to run the car. So it caught our attention when a team from Newcastle University announced plans to drive a Tesla Model 3 around the perimeter of Australia using only solar energy – from printed solar panels made from recycled water bottles and photovoltaic ink.

Outboard Printed Solar Panels

The first thing to know is that these solar panels are not part of the car. On the contrary, the solar panel is 60 feet long, but it is very light and flexible enough to be rolled up and carried in the trunk of the Model 3. This network is said to be able to recharge the Tesla after six hours of cooking under the Australian sun is how Model 3 plans to spend 84 days traveling 9,400 miles across the continent, while stopping at some 70 schools to spark interest in STEM subjects and spread the gospel of energies renewable.

Printing with photovoltaic ink

The concept of printing solar cells has actually been around for over a decade. In 2011, MIT proposed depositing photovoltaic cells on paper, textiles, and even plastic food packaging, but this steam-printing process had to be done in a vacuum, and the electrical connections didn’t tolerate much bending. It’s sunnier in Australia than Boston, however, and the Victorian Organic Solar Cell Consortium has been experimenting with semiconductor inks there since 2007, applying them by spraying, reverse etching and slot dye coating, as well as screen printing. And they printed on plastic, with no voids, much the same way Australia first printed its currency in plastic in 1988.

Not very effective

Today’s state-of-the-art silicon-based photovoltaic cells are about 25% efficient at converting light energy from photons to electrons. These semiconductor ink-based solar collectors convert solar energy into electrical energy with an efficiency of over 2%, although the folks at Newcastle University estimate that 4% efficiency is within reach. hand.

Not super long lasting either

Printing on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic and covering the printed surface with another layer of PET means that the printed solar panels are extremely flexible, but they don’t last very long. The Newcastle team say their panels have a useful life of one to two years, although further development may improve longevity somewhat. And using organic electronic technology, the panels should be fully renewable, reusable (if the PET layers can be separated), easily recycled.

hella cheap

You pay for what you get. Most of the expense of today’s typical rooftop solar panels is to process the silicon that contains the photovoltaic material. Without wafers, raw materials for printing solar cells are extremely cheap. There’s nothing exotic about the production process either – cells can be printed at 33 feet per minute – so the Newcastle University team estimate that printed solar panels can be produced for around 0 $.66/square foot. This means that the energy they produce costs $0.62 per kilowatt hour.

A bright future for printed solar panels?

Scientists say it will eventually be possible to print photovoltaic semiconductor ink on a huge range of surfaces and materials (even steel), making possible solar curtains, blinds and perhaps even windows using partially transparent photovoltaic ink. But it’s still too early to expect that a vehicle the size and shape of today’s cars, powered by today’s engines, could drive all day without stopping. at least to recharge a little with solar energy.

Nigeria to make rice wine soon, halts import | The Guardian Nigeria News https://vinivert.com/nigeria-to-make-rice-wine-soon-halts-import-the-guardian-nigeria-news/ Sun, 08 May 2022 04:02:00 +0000 https://vinivert.com/nigeria-to-make-rice-wine-soon-halts-import-the-guardian-nigeria-news/ Plans are underway by stakeholders in the rice production value chain to commence rice wine manufacturing, said National Secretary of the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN), Dr Livinus Nwangwa.

Plans are underway by stakeholders in the rice production value chain to commence rice wine manufacturing, said National Secretary of the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN), Dr Livinus Nwangwa.

Nwangwa, who revealed this during an interview with The Guardian in Abuja yesterday, hinted that Nigeria has also stopped importing rice.

He hinted that not only is Nigeria preparing to join the rice exporting countries, but he asserted that Nigeria is also exploring the possibilities of using rice as a by-product for other consumables.

“Rice is not only good to eat. There are rice wine and rice cake among other products. For example, rice wine is very good and tastes so good. Rice wine is well developed in Japan where I studied the development of rice. RIFAN is the spearhead of rice wine making in Nigeria.

“The process is already underway. Rice wine goes through the same fermentation process as wheat, sorghum and malt to make wine. We had a series of meetings with the Japanese ambassador and his team on this issue. We are trying to go to Japan and Thailand to achieve this,” he said.

While commending the Federal Government for providing the necessary support through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), he added that this support is responsible for the achievements rice farmers have registered so far.

He accused foreigners of repackaging Nigerian rice as imported, saying, “Nigeria no longer imports rice. What we are seeing now is foreigners buying our rice and repackaging it in foreign bags as “foreign rice”. Nigerian rice is almost on the same level as the imported one.

Most of the imported rice in our markets is produced locally but repackaged and renamed foreign rice. We all know that the CBN no longer gives foreign currency for importing rice.

The RIFAN Secretary, who explained that CBN interventions have facilitated access to credit for rice farmers, added that the walls between farmers and commercial banks have been broken down.

“CBN gives us everything we need to start growing rice. The Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL), which was established by the CBN interfaces between farmers and commercial banks to access loans without stress. Previously, commercial banks made it very difficult for farmers to get loans because they said farmers were poor and had no collateral. For anyone who really wants to be a farmer and is passionate about it, the sky is the limit for such a person. Barriers to success have been removed by the government,” he explained.

He insisted that Nigeria can now compete with any rice grown and processed from any part of the world, saying that some foreign rice farmers come to Nigeria to set up rice processing businesses.

Nwangwa insisted that the rice pyramid hosted in Abuja was a great success that showcased Nigeria’s huge potential in rice production.

He described the simmering insecurity in the country as a huge challenge facing farmers not only in the northern part of the country but across the country.

Four Chautauqua County businesses are receiving loans to help them recover from COVID-19.

At the recent county Industrial Development Agency meeting, board members approved the issuance of Federal Economic Development Administration revolving loan funds to Merritt Estate Winery Inc., Artone LLC, Heritage Ministries and Labyrinth Press Company Inc. The money was left over from previous loans issued.

IDA project manager Kristine Moribato explained that Forestville-based Merritt Estate Winery previously applied for an $82,000 working capital loan from the federal CARES Act, which was designed to help small businesses. businesses to recover from the pandemic. However, IDA had reduced the loan by 50% due to the number of companies applying.

“They still had a need” said Moribato. “They couldn’t buy all the grapes they needed for processing and making wine.”

County IDA agreed to another $41,000 loan with a seven-year repayment plan with an interest rate of 2.44%. Board member Kevin Muldowney abstained from voting due to Merritt Winery being one of his tenants.

For Artone LLC, IDA project manager Carol Rasmussen explained that the Jamestown company originally requested a working capital loan of $250,000. This amount has been reduced to $125,000.

“They had 100 employees and they were down to 50,” she says. “They have now regrouped. They have new demands that are increasing, so this working capital is needed for new employees, for payroll and for training. »

Rasmussen said the hospitality furniture business had up to 99 employees. Their newly approved $125,000 loan will be for seven years with an interest rate of 2.44%.

For heritage ministries, Rasmussen said he requested a working capital loan of $250,000, which was reduced by 50%. “They provide safe and serene housing for seniors, but COVID-19 has really put a strain on them, especially with testing supplies. It really weighed on their cash flow,” she says.

Rasmussen added that Heritage Ministries had a mandate to purchase new equipment. This time, Heritage applied for a $100,000 loan, which the IDA board approved. It will be for seven years at 2.44% interest.

Labyrinth Press Company, a cafe and restaurant on Fourth Street in Jamestown, applied for an EDA loan from the county IDA. They asked for a loan of $100,000 over seven years at 2.44% interest. Unlike the other three companies, they had not received a loan before due to COVID-19.

According to Rasmussen, Labyrinth recently purchased Maurice’s beauty salon, located downstairs from their restaurant. “They bought this because they need to expand their kitchen,” she says.

When COVID hit, the company had to reduce its workforce from 21 people to 11. Since then, the company has been able to regroup and increase its workforce. Rasmussen said the money will be used for their new hires, including training expenses.

The county IDA unanimously backed the remaining three loans.

In Rochester, Minnesota, the forager brewpub that Austin Jevne founded with life and business partner Annie Henderson continues its mission to provide compelling beer and food to the community. However, Jevne’s Humble Forager brand has set a bigger goal to bring its authentic, grounded approach to great-tasting beer to a wider national market.

While Forager brews on a seven-barrel system for local fans, Humble Forager is working producing 100-barrel batches at partners such as Octopi in Madison, Wisconsin, or Fair State Collective in Minneapolis. A continuous line that spans their entire production is focused on real ingredients and real fruit, used thoughtfully and expressively, whatever the style. Whether it’s fruit beer, hard seltzer or stout, the approach is the same: no extracts, high quality ingredients and a step-by-step approach to technique to get the best possible expression from the chosen ingredients. .

In this episode of the podcast, Jevne discusses her approach to recipes and the process, including:

  • creating real hard fruit seltzers that are stable for up to 18 months.
  • using a three-step pasteurization process to temper and stabilize fruit in fast acids and hard seltzer
  • layering fruit flavors with other herbal and tea notes to create flavors that evolve through the sip
  • seeking the highest quality fruit from a variety of sources
  • find the best sources of flavorful vanilla
  • working with pectin-rich fruits
  • taking into account the expression of acidity in fruity hard seltzers and sour beers
  • create a library of stout recipes and cask types to create options when mixing
  • using a concentrated ingredient-by-ingredient infusion method to carefully add flavor to stouts
  • deploy mixed coffee brewing methods using both coffee beans and ground coffee for different flavor contributions

And more.

“A lot of people assume that fruity acids have a similar shelf life to hazy IPAs,” says Jevne. “And absolutely they do, from certain breweries. But if you have a process that changes that, we have an 18-month shelf life with flavor stability in our fruit acids, and people look at our shelf life at the bottom of the cans and sometimes get a little worried. But we did several tests on the longevity of where this flavor is stable, and because of that [multi-step pasteurization] process, our beers are great and can sit in the back of your trunk on a hot Texas summer day, and they won’t explode.

The FTA with New Zealand was signed in 1983 and since 2003 Australia has ratified around 16 FTAs, including with the United States, China, Japan and South Korea. Each subsequently saw significant benefits for certain agricultural exports, particularly beef.

For Australian agriculture, India offers a massive, scalable and unique market. With a population of 1.4 billion, an eclectic mix of cultures and religions, and an increasingly affluent middle class, the Indian market offers opportunities for a range of products.

Obviously, the market is not without its challenges either. The country’s infrastructure, particularly for reaching internal metropolitan markets, is different from what many Australian exporters may have experienced before, while the country’s bureaucratic process could also be potentially longer than Australia’s.

It is important to note that the prospect of India as the main export destination for Australian agricultural products would be an important step in diversifying the number of export markets and reducing concentration risk. Since a number of agricultural products have only a small number of major export destinations, this would reduce the risk of agricultural exports being hit hard if a problem affected a particular market.

Commodity Outlook

In terms of individual products, the exports that could initially benefit the most from this FTA include sheepmeat, wool, lentils, horticulture and wine.

For wool, the current 5% tariff will be reduced to zero by the end of this year. India currently purchases around 7% of Australia’s wool production, ranging from superfine wools to coarser wools. While China has long been the largest market for Australian wool, the potential for increased processing in markets such as India and across the sub-continent will continue to grow.

For sheepmeat producers, the Indian market has proven difficult to penetrate so far, due to a 30% import duty. As a result, Australia has exported only 111 tonnes of mutton to India over the past five years. With this tariff now set to be reduced to zero, Australian exporters will be able to explore new opportunities in the Indian market, particularly for the Muslim population.

OSU Balls

Diamond: the Cowgirls completed a top-25 sweep of Texas after taking two on Sunday and the Pokes dropped their first streak of 2022, losing a close to TCU on Sunday afternoon

Spring Game Breakdown:

– Evaluate how the game went
– Pictures of the game/training
– Everything Mike Gundy said after the game

ESPN’s Todd McShay weighed in on Malcolm Rodriguez’s stock project:

Then he said, “He’s like a sawn-off linebacker and off the ball. Doesn’t have long arms. This is really a concern for the teams. But he ran a 4.52 (40-yard dash) which is outstanding. He had a vertical leap of 39½ inches. Team captain. Great work ethic. Also excelled in kickoff and punt coverage teams.

“I think he’s a day three pick (rounds 4-7). And I think he’s going to come in and make his mark on special teams right away. Will be a reserve linebacker and get a chance to show what he can do.
