Perennial crops need not be planted every year, have roots that grow deeper in the soil and other advantages over annual crops. However, progress has been comparatively slow in terms of unlocking the evolutionary and eco-physiological bottlenecks that limit the yield potential and therefore broader adoption of such crops. The “Unlocking the Biological Potential of Perennial Grain Crops for Sustainable Agriculture: Advances and Challenges” symposium at the Translating Visionary Science to Practice ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting will address these topics.

As a uniquely nutritious food source, soybeans have a significant and growing impact on the planet. But only a small fraction of soybean production complies with voluntary sustainability standards (VSSs) that could address some of the sector’s critical environmental and social challenges, according to a new report from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD).

More than two billion people worldwide suffer from micronutrient malnutrition due to deficiencies in minerals and vitamins. People in developing countries are most affected, as their diets are typically dominated by starchy staple foods, which are inexpensive sources of calories but contain low amounts of micronutrients. In a perspective paper, “Multiplying the efficiency and impact of biofortification through metabolic engineering,” recently published in Nature Communications, an international team of scientists, led by Ghent University, explain how plant genetic engineering can help to sustainably address micronutrient malnutrition.

Feed, especially during the wintertime, is the biggest cost of production for cow-calf operations. Therefore, we often see the cull cow market dive at this time of the year as producers haul open cows to the sale barn rather than feeding them for another year without a return. Historically, we see cull cow prices hold value from February to August, and then drop from October through December.

Farmers can use a variety of practices to keep their soils healthy. Some of these practices include not tilling the land, planting cover crops between growing seasons and rotating the type of crop grown on each field. However, research published in Agricultural & Environmental Letters, notes that information regarding soil health is often too generalized.

The Soybean Innovation Lab (SIL) and the American Oil Chemists’ Society (AOCS) will be hosting a virtual international symposium on soybean processing in collaboration with the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Makerere University, and the National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO).

The University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus has received $6.5 million from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs toward construction of a new field crop services building. Perth-Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece, parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, made the announcement today at Ridgetown Campus. Funded through the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario (ARIO), the investment will support the building of a 12,000-square-foot facility intended to modernize crop research on campus and provide students with a cutting-edge space to conduct research and learn from industry experts. Construction is under way for completion by spring 2022.

Dr. Silvina Arias and Dr. Charles Block have received a $38,882 grant from the American Seed Trade Association’s Seed Science Foundation (SSF) to develop a test that will differentiate between two closely-related corn bacteria. One of the bacteria causes Stewart’s wilt, a disease that prevents corn seed from being exported. The other bacterium is a close relative that does not cause disease on corn. The problem with current testing methods is that they cannot tell the two apart, potentially resulting in false-positive test results.

Sorghum is on a roll. Technology advancements, emerging markets and sorghum's tolerance to marginal lands and tough environmental conditions all mean that the crop can offer a sustainable grain or forage solution. In fact, the USDA reports that sorghum acres grew by 7% this year. Growers will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at some of the new technologies that are improving productivity of the crop during the Sorghum Frontiers Virtual Field Day on November 5, 2020. The free event is hosted by Alta Seeds, the premium seed brand of Advanta US and a leading provider of advanced sorghum genetics and technologies.
