Hello World! and because Thermal Time controls it all

Isn't that how EVERY first thing is supposed to be titled? "Hello World" and shit.
It's 0130 hours IST; waiting for team mates to join in; just scribbling notes on how much longetivity can we exactly impart to food grains (dhaan, in our mother tongue) by achieving temperatures lower than field temperature - a concept very dearly known in Ecology as Thermal Time. While universities of Pennsylvania, Illinois and Princeton have started experimenting with thermal time of growing crops to speed up the farming cycle and produce more, we decided to apply the same to grains post-harvest, by regulating temperature and moisture, and figuring out how much economic boost it actually gives to the food budget of our country. Results of Thermal Time expt on rice, wheat and barley coming up soon; the socio-economic boost show coming up soon too. We are on to something big! I can feel it. Stay tuned :)
