The natural history of maize began nine thousand years ago when Mexican farmers started to collect the seeds of the wild grass, teosinte. Invaluable as a food source, maize permeated Mexican culture and religion. Its domestication eventually led to its adoption as a model organism, aided in large part by its large chromosomes, ease of pollination and growing agricultural importance. Genome comparisons between varieties of maize, teosinte and other grasses are beginning to identify the genes responsible for the domestication of modern maize and are also providing ideas for the breeding of more hardy varieties.

Researchers at the US Department of Energy (DOE) have developed and analyzed high-resolution crystal structures of an enzyme from the cellulose-degrading GH55 family. The team used a variety of techniques that resulted in the "most complete functional mapping of an entire GH family available to date."

Scientists from he Universities of Melbourne and Queensland and IBM Research have moved a step closer to identifying the nanostructure of cellulose – the basic structural component of plant cell walls that provide fibre in our diet. The insights could pave the way for more disease resistant varieties of crops and increase the sustainability of the pulp, paper and fibre industry – one of the main uses of cellulose.

Lao PDR’s northern-most province lies among cloud-covered peaks between China to the west and Vietnam to the east. The mountains here, along the eastern edge of Phongsaly province, are cut by a narrow winding pass – a trade route with Vietnam becoming more popular amid rising demand for pig meat.

Propagation of varieties of Theobroma cacao has been done through somatic embryogenesis (SE). However, low efficiencies and genotype dependence still limits propagation at commercial scales. The Pennsylvania State University's Wayne Curtis aims to use transcription factor Babyboom (BBM) to promote the transition of somatic cacao cells from the vegetative to embryonic.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has approved Southern Gardens Citrus' application for an Experimental Use Permit under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. The permit allows Southern Gardens to move forward in its development of the possible use of a spinach protein to help control the devastating citrus greening disease, or Huanglongbing (HLB).

Vietnam’s rice production has increased every year since the 1980s, with the country now being the world’s second-largest rice exporter. Rice research and the development of new rice varieties in particular greatly contributed to this.In a recent study, the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) looked at the economic impact and value of rice breeding work of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) between 1985 and 2009 across Southeast Asia.
