A study conducted at Purdue University examined American attitudes toward genetic engineering in the wake of heightened coverage of the Zika virus in 2016. The study found that more than three-quarters of Americans would support the release of genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes to decrease the risk of the virus, but less than half support the use of GM in livestock production (44%), grain production (49%), and fruit and vegetable production (48%).

An international group of researchers has found another weapon in the arsenal of defenses that plants use to fight off their herbivore attackers, in this case eavesdropping on a very specific chemical signal from an herbivore to detect its presence and prepare for future attack," said Anjel Helms, postdoctoral fellow in entomology at the The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State).

Climate changes and rising temperatures have become major limiting factors in pea cultivation. A new study conducted at the University of Saskatchewan has indicated that pea plants with longer flowering time and higher pod numbers may be more resistant to heat stress. Rosalind Bueckert, lead author of the study, said that tolerance to heat stress in peas seems to be dependent on a few traits. However, two traits are most important: higher pod numbers and longer flowering duration.

The delay in commercialization of biotech crops in Africa is costly, not only economically, but also in health and nutrition, according to a study published in Plos One. Justus Wesseler from Wageningen University and other scientists developed a real option model to illustrate the effects of delaying approval of biotech crops with important traits that address specific concerns of smallholder farmers in Africa.

An international team led by researchers from the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), and the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has mapped the transposable elements, or transposons of maize. Transposons, called jumping genes because they move locations within a genome, was discovered in maize by Nobel-winning geneticist Barbara McClintock in the 1940s.

African horse sickness (AHS) is a serious and often fatal viral disease affecting horses in Africa, caused by the dsRNA orbivirus African horse sickness virus (AHSV). Although vaccination is the most effective weapon in battling AHS, the available vaccine is a live-attenuated version of the virus (LAV). This constraint spurred attempts to develop an alternative vaccine.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) launches the Viet Nam National Action Plan for management of antibiotic use (AMU) and control of antibiotic resistance (AMR) in livestock production and aquaculture 2017 – 2020. With financial support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), this plan was developed in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to guide the actions of the agriculture sector

A two-day workshop focusing on research-based, sustainable rice straw management initiatives and viable market prospects for rice straw was held at the IRRI Headquarters, 8-9 August. The event, titled "Putting Waste to Good Use: Sustainable Rice Straw Management in the Philippines," brought together researchers from Philippine government agencies and state universities and private sector entrepreneurs.

Global warming is expected to have a significant impact on future yields of everything from rice to fish, particularly in countries situated closer to the equator, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) warned today. Geographically, the negative impact of climate change on agricultural output could result in lower yields of rice, wheat, corn and soybeans in countries with tropical climates, compared with the impacts experienced by those in higher latitudes. Fisheries could also be affected by changes to water temperature.

In plants, most Cys2/His2 zinc finger proteins with two zinc finger domains (ZPT2) are involved in abiotic stress responses. A team from Jiangxi Agricultural University in China, led by Dechun Liu, cloned and studied the role of a ZPT2 gene family, PtrZPT2-1 from trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata), in abiotic stress response. PtrZPT2-1 was revealed to be contained in the nucleus. PtrZPT2-1 expression is strongly induced by cold, drought, salt and abiotic stresses.
