Biotech crops can offset climate-induced crop loss, expert says

Temperature swings and extreme weather associated with climate change are expected to reduce the production of staple crops s -More- 

RNAi downregulation of three key lignin genes in sugarcane improves glucose release without reduction in sugar production

Sugarcane is a subtropical crop that produces large amounts of biomass annually. It is a key agricultural crop in many countries for the production of sugar and other products. Residual bagasse follow...

The effects of certain landscape characteristics on insecticide use depend on context and crop type

Over the past half century, food production has intensified to meet the growing demand. And as agricultural fields have become ever larger, more pesticides are required to enhance yield.

Researchers aim to develop crops that require less labor

Monsanto Vegetables researchers are studying crop traits that would increase the efficiency of crop production with less labo -More- 

Genomic innovation for crop improvement

Crop production needs to increase to secure future food supplies, while reducing its impact on ecosystems. Detailed characterization of plant genomes and genetic diversity is crucial for meeting these...

Modified Soybeans Yield More in Future Climate Conditions

Researchers at the University of Illinois, United States, following a three-year field study, proved that engineered soybeans yield more than conventional soybeans in 2050’s predicted climatic condi...

Led by Nigeria, Africa opening door to genetically modified crop cultivation

Africa has been reluctant to adopt GM technology for crop production. Recent developments suggest that may be changing, with many African nations poised to overcome domestic and international opposit...

Online Pest Risk Atlas for Africa to Combat Climate Change Effects on Pest Management

The International Potato Center (CIP) has announced the release of its free online mobile accessible Pest Risk Atlas for Africa. The Atlas assesses potential pest risks under both current and future c...

Climate change influences on crop mix shifts in the United States.

We examine the impact of current and future climate on crop mixes over space in the US. We find using historical data that temperature and precipitation are among the causal factors for shits in crop ...

Continuous Hydrogen Production from Agricultural Wastewaters at Thermophilic and Hyperthermophilic Temperatures.

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of hydraulic retention time (HRT) (8 to 0.5 h) and temperature (55 to 75 °C) in two anaerobic fluidized bed reactors (AFBR) using cheese w...

Point stresses during reproductive stage rather than warming seasonal temperature determines yield in temperate rice.

Climate change is predicted to shift temperature regimes in most agricultural areas with temperature changes expected to impact yields of most crops, including rice. These temperature-driven effects c...

The combined and separate impacts of climate extremes on the current and future US rainfed maize and soybean production under elevated CO2.

Heat and drought are two emerging climatic threats to the US maize and soybean production, yet their impacts on yields are collectively determined by the magnitude of climate change and rising atmosph...

Soil fertility, crop biodiversity, and farmers' revenues: Evidence from Italy.

This paper analyzes the interplay between soil fertility, crop biodiversity, and farmers' revenues. We use a large, original, farm-level panel dataset. Findings indicate that both crop biodiversity an...
