Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020, marks the 75th anniversary of Noble Research Institute and the beginning of a year-long celebration of agricultural producers, the land that provides for our collective well-being, and the organization’s future. Since its founding in 1945, Noble Research Institute has supported farmers and ranchers through education, research and consultation as they steward the nation’s grazing lands and soil. Founder and philanthropist Lloyd Noble created his organization as a resource to work beside individuals to rebuild the soil and provide lasting stability for an economy in the aftermath of the Dust Bowl. During its 75th anniversary year, Noble will celebrate the importance of the land, recognize farmers and ranchers who car.

Australian scientists have developed a new tool to reduce the guesswork by grain growers in assessing the need to take action against Russian wheat aphid (RWA) to prevent yield and financial loss. Through a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) investment, a RWA action threshold calculator has been developed to underpin grower and adviser decision making. The predictive calculator indicates when in-season control measures are economically warranted. It can help growers determine whether a timely spray application is needed to prevent crop and profit losses, or whether insecticide application would be an unnecessary cost. The new ‘RWA growth stage 30 action threshold calculator’ and instructions for its use are now available.

Did you know that vehicles with steering wheels on the left are often cheaper to make than right hand-drive cars? They are mass-produced in much larger batches. But many drivers and governments were just unwilling to change to this dominant design. We humans are not so adept at change. Instead of embracing novel ways of thinking, we’d rather stick to the old ones. We cling onto what is safe, what is familiar or what we are already good at. We see this in the workplace, in our personal lives and in society as a whole. The world still can’t agree on using the metric system! Within the domain of plant breeding, we are both driving and responding to rapid change. It is mesmerizing to visualize the changes gene editing is about to deliver, not t.

More than 80% of consumers in Spain would change their purchasing habits if they were better able to identify more sustainable food, according to a new report from Corteva Agriscience. Some 2,000 consumers participated in the study entitled Sustainability in the Food Sector: A Challenge for All, which explores consumer demands and trends relating to sustainably produced food. While more than 70% of respondents cited some knowledge about sustainable agri-food processes, almost 80% said they lacked understanding and, of these, more than 75% wanted more information.

The Australian sunflower industry is about to go through a revolution, with the release of the first locally available imidazolinone-tolerant variety, Ausiclear 20. Importantly, the variety has also been bred locally, by Barenbrug Australia Northern Breeding Manager Chris Haire, who is based in Toowoomba. Hairesays breeding an imi-tolerant sunflower variety is an important breakthrough because controlling broadleaf weeds in sunflowers has been a challenge for growers for many years.

When most people think of fungi, the thoughts are usually not good, turning to something that does damage more than those that are actually helpful. Yet, fungi play a critical role in the growth and development of plant life and have for millions of years. Scientists have known for a long time that arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi that live in harmony with about 90% of land plants and play a key role in their root systems, are responsible for carrying needed phosphate to plants to help growth. Now, however, thanks to a discovery by a team of scientists from Texas Tech University's Institute of Genomics for Crop Abiotic Stress Tolerance (IGCAST) in the Department of Plant and Soil Science, and the Nanjing Agricultural University's State Key.

Curtin academics have led the production of a world-first standards document to guide the supply and use of native seeds for the ecological restoration of degraded and destroyed forests and other natural landscapes. Lead researcher Dr Simone Pedrini from the ARC Centre for Mine Site Restoration in Curtin’s School of Molecular and Life Sciences, said the growing demand for native seeds in ecological restoration and rehabilitation has resulted in a rapidly growing global industry in the sourcing, supply and sale of native seeds.

Scientists predict that climate change will lead to higher temperatures, as well as greater temperature variability. These changes will dramatically affect agriculture systems, decreasing crop productivity, harming farmers’ livelihoods and threatening global food security. To address these challenges, the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) is seeking research proposals providing transformative approaches and solutions to increase a crop’s tolerance for higher temperatures. The resulting research will improve crop’s climate resilience. This request for proposals is part of FFAR’s Next Generation Crops Challenge Area, which is accepting applications starting today.

Farmers around the world are keen to protect their most important asset: their soil. The soil supports and enriches their crops. But the relatively thin layer of topsoil can readily wash away into streams, carrying unwanted nutrients with it. Enter cover crops. Cover crops are inedible plants grown during the off-season. Their roots help keep soil in place, preventing erosion. Cover crops can even absorb excess nutrients like nitrogen to keep them from polluting streams. Farmers are increasingly interested in using cover crops to help their farms. But with a dizzying array of plants to choose from and complex crop rotations, making the right choice is no easy feat.
