Introduced to the United States over 60 years ago, soybean cyst nematode (SCN) has spread broadly throughout the Midwest and eastern parts of the country. After penetrating the root tissue, SCN take nutrients away from the soybean plant and reduce plant growth and yield. These nematodes are the leading cause of soybean losses in the United States--in 2014, SCN resulted in the loss of 3.5 million tons of soybean. While there are management strategies in place, many of them have become less effective in curtailing SCN populations. University of Illinois and USDA plant pathologists M.L. Pawlowski and G.L. Hartman, respectively, have been involved in an on-going effort to increase soybean productivity by reducing soybean diseases and pests. The.

Three new wheat varieties released this year by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ wheat breeding program are the product of more than a dozen years of work by breeders on the UGA Griffin campus. When it comes to cultivating new varieties of wheat, patience is key, as it takes an average of 10 to 14 years to breed a new variety of the grain that has been around as long as mankind. Researchers put in many years of work to see the fruits of their labor, and this year Mohamed Mergoum, the Georgia Seed Development-UGA Foundation Professor in Wheat Breeding and Genetics at the Institute of Plant Breeding, Genetics and Genomics, and his research team are seeing the results of work begun in 2005 by wheat

Researchers working to develop crops with healthier, more resistant starch at the Quadram Institute and John Innes Centre are partnering with the John Innes Foundation, who will be funding a two year collaborative research programme. This two-year Fellowship will support the work of Principle Investigator Fred Warren, an expert on starch properties, structure and digestion (Quadram Institute Bioscience), and Co-Investigator Dr David Seung, an expert on starch synthesis, and aims to provide a basis for the production of crops that contain more slowly digested starch (known as resistant starch) to form a healthier part of our diet.

Digital readiness in the supply chain has been revealed by the current pandemic as an urgent and critical need. Traditional links of the chain have been weakened or disrupted, and so various sectors like banking, retail and health services have taken a massive shift to electronic means of doing business. Consumers, employees and leaders are embracing an array of digital technologies in a more accelerated pace than ever before, out of necessity and need for efficiency. Agricultural trade is no different, especially in phytosanitary measures which maintain standards for food safety and animal and plant health. For plant products like seed, global trading operations rely on steady communication and transparency in phytosanitary requirements to.
