RNA perform a variety of functions in cells, helping with everything from regulating genes to building proteins. In recent years, it has become clear that chemical modifications to RNA help guide these functions, but only a handful of these modifications have been identified in plants. On July 24, Andrew Nelson, a faculty member at the Boyce Thompson Institute, and collaborators received a $2 million award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to identify and infer the functional significance of dozens of different types of RNA modifications in 15 diverse model and crop species. Resources developed by the project will make it easier for plant scientists to utilize and expand upon the discoveries. The project also places a strong focus

Yield10 Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq:YTEN), an agricultural bioscience company, announced that it established 50 acres of spring Camelina under contract with a grower in Montana in the second quarter of 2020. This is a business development activity necessary to gain experience in establishing the value chain for producing Camelina sativa seed at large scale as a source of new crop products. The objective of this activity was to gain experience in seed bulk-up, grower contracts, logistics and handling of harvested seed, including toll crushing, and to produce quantities of oil and protein meal for customer sampling. The crop has reached maturity and is currently drying down with harvesting expected in the weeks ahead.

Jan Leach, an international authority on how plants resist disease-causing microbes with Colorado State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences, has received the Award of Distinction from the American Phytopathological Society (APS). APS is the largest professional organization of plant pathologists in the world, with members dedicated to the study and control of plant diseases. The Award of Distinction is the highest honor the society can bestow and is presented only “on rare occasions to persons who have made truly exceptional contributions to plant pathology.” In the 112-year history of APS, only 16 individuals have previously received this honor. Leach will be presented the award virtually on Aug. 4 during the APS annual meeting “

The Soybean Innovation Lab (SIL) developed a new Guide to African Soybean Seedborne Diseases and Pests for use by African seed companies, seed multipliers, research institutions, and soybean processors, whose operations demand high-quality seed. Identifying the causes of decreased seed health, which translates to poor germination, low yields, and decreased profitability, is key to building a successful soybean industry in Africa. The newly released guide provides guidance on visual seed rating, basic and advanced germination tests, and microbe identification to ensure good seed viability and vigor.

Farmer sentiment was virtually unchanged in July in comparison to a month earlier, according to the Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer. The index rose just one point from June to a reading of 118, still 30% lower than in February before the pandemic began. The Ag Economy Barometer is based on responses from 400 U.S. agricultural producers. This month’s survey was conducted July 20-24.

The first experimental seed samples will be brought into the Svalbard Global Seed Vault on the 27th of August. These first test sets consist of seeds produced at the IPK Gatersleben. "We contribute a total of five crops - wheat, barley, pea, lettuce and cabbage. The material was grown on our experimental fields in the last year," says Prof. Dr. Andreas Börner from the Genebank department at IPK Gatersleben. "The IPK is the first institution to provide seeds. The other partners will follow next year." During the following 2-3 years, seeds from nine additional crops will be produced and put into the -18°C seed storage in Svalbard. Seeds will be produced by the project partners that are highly ranked gene banks and research institutes that als.

Yield10 Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq:YTEN), an agricultural bioscience company, announced that it conducted field testing during the 2019/2020 winter season to evaluate emergence of winter Camelina sativa varieties. Yield10 is developing double haploid lines as a foundation for Camelina development and breeding for crossing in new performance traits. The testing of these winter varieties is part of Yield10’s development of Camelina sativa in the medium term for use at commercial scale as a cash cover crop for North America. Cover crops are becoming increasingly important to improve the sustainability of food production and maybe an ideal way for farmers to open up large areas for new crops producing novel products by complementing and not compe.

Art DeGaetano, professor of earth and atmospheric sciences, is one of nine scientists who have co-authored a report to help the nation’s farmers, producers and commercial agricultural managers reduce risk in the face of climate change. “We present a foundational report on how to keep the pulse on climate change in agriculture, what climate change indicators to watch, and how the indicators may change,” said DeGaetano, who is also a fellow in the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability. The report, “Climate Indicators for Agriculture,” was released July 29 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has identified some of the plant species in bags of unsolicited seeds arriving in mailboxes across the United States. Officials have warned the shipments of mystery seeds, which appear to have originated in China, could be invasive plant species. So far, however, the species appear to be innocuous. At least 14 of the seed species had been identified as of July 29, according to Deputy Administrator Osama El-Lissy of the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. They includes mustard, cabbage and morning glory as well as herbs like mint, sage, rosemary and lavender. He said hibiscus and roses were also found. CBS News confirmed that residents in all 50 states have reported receiving the suspicious p.

New technology has led to a greater understanding of how gene placement within the tomato genome influences gene expression and, therefore, the characteristics of the resulting plant’s fruit, a discovery that is important for breeders and producers. University of Georgia horticulture researcher Esther van der Knaap provided vital information for an expansive new analysis of genetic variation among tomatoes that uncovered 230,000 previously hidden large-scale differences in DNA between varieties. As tomato plants evolved, segments of DNA were deleted, duplicated or rearranged. These structural variations in genomes underpin the vast diversity among tomatoes, changing flavors, altering yield and shaping other important traits, according to a
