Illinois Department of Agriculture’s Grain Tour shows off agricultural technology

In addition to visiting agricultural facilities in rural downstate, the group was scheduled to visit the CME Group in Chicago, where agricultural …

One hint that this was a bit different was the translator making it understandable for the Spanish-speaking guests.

It was part of the Illinois Department of Agriculture’s Illinois Grain Tour that brought agriculture representatives from outside the U.S. to learn about the latest techniques and equipment being used to produce corn and soybeans, the nation’s two biggest crops and two of its largest agricultural exports.

This year, 42 people participated in the tour, including 35 from Mexico, four from Vietnam and three from El Salvador.

“We have a few grain farmers sprinkled in the group, but by and large, these are corn and soybean product importers,” said Bobby Dowson of the Illinois Department of Agriculture’s bureau of marketing and promotion.

One of those was Ricardo Iraheta of El Salvador, who works for a warehouse company that receives grain from the U.S.

“We are interested in how they produce the grain, how they store it,” Iraheta said as he walked through RTS Family Farms, a 3,200-acre grain farm near Auburn. “The technology you use for the crop and the handling is very interesting for us because we need to know how to store it without damaging the grain.”

Compared with a few decades ago, the technology used on the farm is dazzling. At one point, RTS representative Tim Seifert explained how the operation is able to prepare its own chemical applications using electronics to create the precise mix for whatever field is being treated.

There was the phone app that can be used to check on yields. And Seifert ran out the farm’s drone, which can be used to monitor crop development from the sky. Seifert said the visitors aren’t allowed to walk through areas where plant research is going on, but “this puts their mind at ease that we’re constantly coming with new products.”

Farming techniques for various crops are similar regardless of where they are grown, Seifert said.

“We’d like to think we’re a little more technologically advanced, with our GPS, our guidance systems, out application tools and different things like that,” he said. “That’s why it’s really unique for these countries to come and see the benefits [of technology], why we are so successful in our production.”

“They want to see where their food comes from, just like everybody else,” Dowson said. “They’re buying food for their own countrymen, and they want to see where it comes from, start to finish.”

The tours have been good for the Illinois economy, too. In the past five years, the state has tracked $352 million in sales tied directly to participants in the tours.

Illinois trade offices in Mexico City and Japan worked to recruit participants from Asia and Central America to participate in the tour. The participants also were scheduled to visit GSI in Assumption, which is the world’s largest producer of steel farm bins, commercial grain storage bins and grain silos.

In addition to visiting agricultural facilities in rural downstate, the group was scheduled to visit the CME Group in Chicago, where agricultural commodities, among other things, are traded.

The tour occurred this year as the U.S. continues a trade war with China that has damaged U.S. soybean exports to the country. Seifert said he believes the U.S. had to do something about its trade imbalance, and President Donald Trump did what was necessary.

“Somebody had to do what President Trump is doing because trade was getting way out of whack,” he said. “We have been the bearer of the bad news because of what it’s done to our prices and what it’s done to our markets. The world still needs our food. It’s just at what cost, or what are they going to have to pay for it?”

QUEEN CREEK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)– Schnepf Farms is getting ready for their biggest event of the fall, the Pumpkin and Chili Party.

The festival gates near Rittenhouse and Cloud roads will open at 10 a.m., every weekend from Oct. 3 through Oct. 27.

It is complete with new rides like the “Hyperloop” and spinning tea cups.

Other new rides this year include a new zip line and a mini Ferris wheel.

There is no Arizona celebrity at the end of the corn maize, but it is considered to be the most difficult maize in the country.

The festival will have so many options for food from farm fresh chili, pulled pork and Succotash, a dish with corn and lima beans.

Admission to the festival is $22, but on Friday’s grandparents and their grandchildren will get in for free.

This year, season passes are available. For more information visit www.schnepffarms.com.

Week in Restaurant Tech: Ordermark Expands Kiwi Deal, Blaze Takes on Big Pizza

LeBron James-backed pizza chain Blaze unveiled two new initiatives this week: larger pies and an integrated delivery partnership with DoorDash.

McDonald’s grabbed the main spotlight this week for its acquisition of voice-order tech company Apprente, which it says could make your future drive-thru experience faster and simpler. But while Mickey D’s continued its evolution from burger chain to tech company, plenty of other new developments unfolded in the restaurant space this week past week.

If you want to learn more about the latest in restaurant technology, be sure to head to Seattle this October 7–8 for The Spoon’s Smart Kitchen Summit. Grab your tickets here and come on down.

Panasonic Unveils Kiosk-as-a-Service Solution

Panasonic, which has over 11,000 kiosks deployed at QSRs around the country, introduced a new hardware-software offering this week that promises a one-stop-shop solution for restaurants when it comes to integrating kiosks into daily operations. Dubbed ClearConnect, the platform rolls hardware, the company’s iQtouch software, installation, integration with existing restaurant systems, and after-sales service into a single system restaurants pay a monthly fee for. The new solution also includes a suite of drive-thru technologies. No voice-order capabilities yet, but it’s only a matter of time before we see such a feature make its way to the kiosk.

Ordermark Expands Kiwi Partnership

Ordermark, who helps restaurants organize and streamline restaurant orders, said this week it has expanded its partnership with Kiwi, whose six-wheeled bots enable autonomous delivery service on a few different college campuses right now. According to the press release, the deal gives Kiwi access to Ordermark’s portfolio of restaurant customers, which will expand as the former rolls its bots out to other locations, including Sacramento and Palo Alto.

Blaze Wants to Take on Big Pizza With Delivery Strategy

LeBron James-backed pizza chain Blaze unveiled two new initiatives this week: larger pies and an integrated delivery partnership with DoorDash. Up to now, Blaze has been known for its 11-inch personal pies loaded with customizable toppings that don’t exactly travel well. The addition of larger, more shareable 14-inch pizzas makes Blaze’s offerings better candidates for delivery. As with a growing number of integrated delivery options, customers can place orders directly through the Blaze website or app and still get food delivered via a DoorDash driver. (Customers can also order Blaze via DoorDash or Postmates.) Blaze also says it’s taking on Big Pizza with this new delivery partnership — though it will be some time before an upstart pizza brand has the same reach as a behemoth like Domino’s.

Domino’s Pizza to Reward its French Customers €100000 in Bitcoin

Coin Idol

As per the firm’s statement via Twitter on Friday September 6, Domino’s France introduced the $110K BTC prize competition during the event of its 30th anniversary.

Domino’s Pizza, the French unit of an American conglomerate pizza restaurant chain established more than five decades ago, rolled out an ordering contest with a huge premium of around $110,000 in Bitcoin (BTC) or hard money of 100,000 euros.

As per the firm’s statement via Twitter on Friday September 6, Domino’s France introduced the $110K BTC prize competition during the event of its 30th anniversary.

Winner Takes All

The competition began on Wednesday September 4 and is now inviting customers (purchasers) to take part in various games when they are ordering pizzas from the French unit of Domino’s Pizza until Wednesday October 2, and then, the purchase cataloging will take place till October 6, this year, as stated on the campaign’s official website.

According to the guidelines of the contest, the sum of money awarded in the form of Bitcoin will be calculated and converted to carry a value of €100K and will be based on the latest exchange rate at the time of time and day of purchase of BTC by the manager of the race if the victor picks or selects Bitcoin. At the end of the competition, the company will transfer the BTC prize to the victor’s cryptocurrency wallet on Monday December. 16, this year as per the set guidelines.

However, this pizza corporation is not new to cryptocurrency, blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) field. Back in May this year, its Singapore and Malaysia units decided to collaborate with one popular Dutch Blockchain company known as SingularityNET to use its DLT-powered artificial intelligence (AI) tech.

Bitcoin Adoption in Pizza Firms

In detail, the execution of blockchain technology by the DLT firm mentioned above will greatly help develop and expand Domino’s supply chain practices and logistics activities in the two aforementioned countries.

The restaurant is also among the giant pizza firms permitting clients to purchase pizza using cryptocurrency such as BTC during the Bitcoin Pizza Day event which is normally acknowledged with an enjoyable activity yearly on May 22 since nine years ago.

In 2010, a programmer from Florida, United States, Laszlo Hanyecz, aka ‘Bitcoin Pizza Guy’, purchased two Papa John’s pizzas (which were worth $30 at the time) for 10,000 BTC. During that particular moment, that looked like a cheap buy, considering BTC’s low value. Albeit, when we look at the current price of the token, it is worth above $10K, this is equival to $103,385,000. Really expensive pizza. Imagine its value in December 2017 when Bitcoin hit its all-time high.
