Climate change, and the resulting hot and cold spells, could affect both the bread-making and seed quality of growing subsequent wheat crops, depending on when such spells occur. Brief periods of eith...
(Elsevier) Currently, agriculture accounts for approximately 9% of total US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By varying diet formulation and the associated crop production to supply the diet, farmers c...
Temperature swings and extreme weather associated with climate change are expected to reduce the production of staple crops s -More-
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.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 08, 2017 Fluence Bioengineering today announced Hällnäs Handelsträdgård, one of Swedenâ...
Monsanto Vegetables researchers are studying crop traits that would increase the efficiency of crop production with less labo -More-
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...
Researchers at Kansas State University, United States, in a new study, looked at weather patterns and sorghum yields over the past 30 years. The team found that sorghum yields begin to drop once a cer...
Animal pollination can impact food security since many crops depend on pollinators to produce fruits and seeds. However, the effects of projected climate change on crop pollinators and therefore on cr...
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 ...
Increasing the accuracy of crop productivity estimates is a key element in planning adaptation strategies to ensure global food security under climate change. Process-based crop models are effective m...
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...
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...
