Crop 2016

Last year, the sowing has been carried out in line with the time, in which it gaves some start up problems by dryness in autumn on various occasions. The mild winter leads to good stocks without harms to leave clay to weather.
By the a bit to dry spring, the plant growth was slowing up and this effect gets increased by missing precipitations in May and June. The eutrophic grounds of the Thuringia Basin, the traditional wheat gathering ground of the Roland Mills United East, with headquarters in Bad Langensalza, can buffer more moisture, therefore the plants could develop a strong root system which was be able to provide the plants with enough water.
This year the grain crop must be interrupted frequently by periodic precipitations. Till August 11th, 2016, only 50% of the wheat and rye fields have been harvested. Altogether, the European Grain Market Stocks have been revised slightly downwards, but the quality has been rated in the most parts as constant. Also in the next year we are able, as usual, to deliver modified grain flours in constant good quality.

The first project of our replacement works has been already completed very successful.
The obsolescent indoor switch gear has been replaced by a new facility.The rebuilding starts at August 12th, 2016 over the weekend and has been completed on August 15th, 2016.
Special thanks to the colleagues of the ceresan – locksmith and electric departments, which have been realized the replacement works without disturbances and problems.
Also special thanks to VS Schaltanlagen Bad Kösen for the quick delivery.

Reconstruction Chemicals Storage

Our 2nd Reconstruction project is the storage of our major chemicals.
After substantial planning and calculation, in the near future our main chemicals will be delivered by
tank trucks and processed afterwards. Thereby we grant a closed process from the supply till the processing and thereby a massive increase of occupational safety and a reduction of possible hazards.

Summer Holidays

Also in this year, our production will be fully keep up during the summer holidays.  Thus, we secure that we can serve our customers in the quality and delivery reliability as usual and product shortages will be eliminated.

Crop perspective

The crop carousel accelerates bit by bit.
The wet months May and June in Central Europe have driven up the prices higher on the stock exchange. , also amongst others with the view of expecting grain sickness defects and quality degrees of degradation. However, contrary to this are the last estimations of the FAO which expects a bumper crop only tight under the level of 2014/2015.
It remains to be seen how it will develops within the next weeks and to hope on a good crop and appropriate good crop conditions.

Preview reconstruction
