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