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-
Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 08, 2017 Fluence Bioengineering today announced Hällnäs Handelsträdgård, one of Swedenâ...
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.
Monsanto Vegetables researchers are studying crop traits that would increase the efficiency of crop production with less labo -More-
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...
Climate change, which causes extreme weather and temperature, is projected to cause a 23 percent decline in the global output of major crops including corn, wheat, rice, and soybean in the 2050s, acco...
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 ...
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...
Efficient use of energy in farming systems is one of the most important implications for decreasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigating global warming (GW). This paper describes the energy u...
Effects of Aspergillus flavus colonization of maize kernels under different water activities (aw; 0.99 and 0.91) and temperatures (30, 37°C) on (a) aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) production and (b) the transcri...
