Victorian scientists are leading two vital projects intended to defend Australian crops from one of the world’s most harmful plant diseases. Xylella fastidiosa is a bacterium transmitted by common sap-sucking insects such as leafhoppers, spittlebugs and sharpshooters and is considered the number one plant biosecurity threat to Australia and New Zealand. This important research, which is being led by Agriculture Victoria, is playing a critical role in helping to safeguard Australian agriculture from exotic biosecurity threats.

Like a baseball slugger whose home run totals rise despite missing more curveballs each season, the U.S. Corn Belt’s prodigious output conceals a growing vulnerability. A new Stanford study reveals that while yields have increased overall – likely due to new technologies and management approaches – the staple crop has become significantly more sensitive to drought conditions. The research, published Oct. 26 in Nature Food, uses a novel approach based on wide differences in the moisture-holding capabilities among soils. The analysis could help lay the groundwork for speeding development of approaches to increase agricultural resilience to climate change.

We’re happy to announce that NordGen has been granted 8,3 million DKK from the Danish Novo Nordisk Foundation. The money will be used to secure that our back up storage for seeds in Denmark will be a state-of-the-art facility and that the plant genetic material stored there can undergo rigorous quality controls. Thanks to the support from Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Nordic- Baltic information system, GENBIS, will also be improved further leading to a higher value for those needing the seeds in their research and development.

There are many variables in producing the perfect New Mexico green chile pepper. Consumers select for flavor profile, and pepper pod size, shape, thickness and color. Agricultural producers want a high yielding plant with picture-perfect pods that are easy to harvest. Food producers want chile peppers with no stem and no damage to the pod. New Mexico State University researchers have developed what is on its way to being the perfect chile pepper for mechanical harvest.

One researcher is in Texas. One is in Nebraska. Together, they are striving to launch the hybridized wheat industry. Hybridization is the cross breeding of two genetically different varieties or species. And much like what has been accomplished in cotton and corn, hybridizing wheat is expected to improve the crop’s strength and health and ability to feed a rapidly growing population. Amir Ibrahim, Ph.D., Texas A&M AgriLife Research wheat breeder in Texas A&M’s Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, Bryan-College Station, has spent the past seven years studying the hybridization of wheat in a partnership with Stephen Baenziger, Ph.D., University of Nebraska-Lincoln small grains breeder. Ibrahim and Baenziger jointly have tested more than 600

Jocelyn Holt, a doctorate candidate in the Department of Entomology of Texas A&M University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, understands it is easier to win a battle when you know what weapons your enemies have in their arsenal. Following that line of thinking, Holt envisions a future where agricultural producers will know key genetic traits of the pests on their crops so they may target them more precisely. But Holt wants to take that line of thinking a step further; she wants to make studies like this in the field of entomology more accessible for all.

In the early days of organizations like the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), the answer to improving global food security was obvious. Help people grow more food. Today the situation is far more complex. Many exciting developments in breeding are either protective or corrective in nature. Stress-tolerant seed varieties are meant to help protect against the worst effects of global climate change. Efforts to develop widely cultivatable, high-yielding varieties based on local landraces seek to reintroduce some of the biodiversity lost through the runaway success of just a handful of commercial varieties.

Agricultural production in Bangladesh is heavily dependent on machines for land preparation, irrigation, pest control, harvesting and transport. Small enterprises that make up the light engineering sector in Bangladesh are responsible for the creation, maintenance and repair of these machines. Without a functioning light engineering sector, agricultural production would quickly grind to a halt. As with other industries in the country, most light engineering workshops closed at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as restrictions on movement eased and in response to demand from agricultural machinery operators, the machinery manufacturing and repair workshops have started to open again.

About 300,000 smallholder farmers in the northern parts of the country are to receive improved certified seeds within the next two years to help increase their crop yields and incomes. The assistance from the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is to support the National Seed Trade Association of Ghana (NASTAG) under the “Strengthening the Ghana Seed System to Enhance Quality Seed Delivery to Farmers” project. The $376,801.76 project, which runs between October 2020 and September 2022 is aimed at improving food and nutrition security and the incomes of smallholder farmers.
