KHRT AGRICULTURE NEWS - 06/18/14

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has formed a committee to help producers deal with federal regulations.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that Goehring's Democratic opponent Ryan Taylor made a similar proposal two weeks ago.  Both men pointed to the need to review recent proposed rules in the federal Clean Water Act, the Worker Protection Standard and the Clean Air Act.
 
     Under Goehring's committee, state agricultural organizations will appoint representatives to the committee to review proposed regulations.  Goehring says the group's first meeting will be in July or August.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Managers from three Panama flour mills are visiting North Dakota to learn more about this year's spring wheat and durum crops.  The officials also hope to become more familiar with the U.S. wheat system from farm to mill during their visit Thursday and Friday.
 
     Panama imports almost 90 percent of its wheat from the U.S. - buying about 4.5 million bushels annually. The North Dakota Wheat Commission says it's an important market for the state's farmers because spring wheat and durum make up nearly half of the wheat sent to the Central American country.
 
     The mill officials will meet with Wheat Commission officials and North Dakota State University researchers in Fargo, and also tour the Northern Crops Institute and a local grain elevator.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A farm worker from South Africa has been killed in a grain bin accident in McLean County.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that 27-year-old Corneilius Johannes Du Plessis was killed Monday when corn collapsed inside a bin in which he was working.  McLean County Coroner Ben Gehring says Du Plessis died at the scene.  Authorities say the state medical examiner's office in Bismarck will perform an autopsy.
