The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), in collaboration with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council. (NERC), recently invested in seven projects awarded through the Newton Fund to provide solutions for long term, sustainable production of food in Colombia and Mexico.  Projects include those to help boost the Mexican avocado crop and supporting Colombian cattle.

The sun was mid-way up when the car that carried me and a few local agricultural officers pulled up in front of a farmhouse. We got out and walked behind the house. There we found a heavily damaged field of corn. The farmer talked animatedly about a strange ‘hungry worm’. His corn was less than one-month old and he had already sprayed three times, without success. In my nine years of field work, I’ve never seen a more depressing plot. Almost every corn plant showed damage and had worms.

Where would you find the world’s largest recreation center and the most natural supermarket? Forests wouldn’t have been your first answer, would it?That’s the thing about forests. They keep secrets.For too long we have seen trees as purely functional or ornamental, objects in the backdrop or on the sideline. They decorate city streets. They give us shady spots for resting and relief from the sun. They provide us with paper and fuel, fruit and nuts. These benefits are fairly obvious.

“Many findings are important for us and for policy makers around the world. The report shows that land is both a source and a sink of greenhouse gases. Currently, land absorbs 22% of our greenhouse gas emissions and such absorption has increased as our emissions have increased. Therefore, we are receiving a free subsidy from nature as the land is reducing the negative climate impacts of our own actions

Artificial intelligence-powered tools are rapidly becoming more accessible, including for people in the more remote corners of the globe. This is good news for smallholder farmers, who can use handheld technologies to run their farms more efficiently, linking them to markets, extension workers, satellite images, and climate information. The technology is also becoming a first line of defense against crop diseases and pests that can potentially destroy their harvests

When I was named the new Editor-in-Chief of PNAS in October 2018, I received hearty congratulations from colleagues from a wide range of disciplines, befitting the intended audience of this venerable journal. The appointment is not my first experience serving as Editor-in-Chief; in 2017, I stepped down after 21 years as Editor-in-Chief of the Annual Review of Entomology (ARE).

Kuwait and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have strengthened their partnership to help Syrian farmers and herders recover and boost their food security and nutrition - all thanks to a $3 million contribution from Kuwait to benefit some 20,000 highly vulnerable people and their extended families. "The Government of Kuwait is committed to supporting people in need of humanitarian assistance.

Developing broad-spectrum resistance is one of the main objectives of crop breeding but more investigation is needed to reveal the molecular mechanisms involved in this process. ACCELERATED CELL DEATH6 (ACD6) in Arabidopsis thaliana is a key component of broad-spectrum resistance. However, the role of ACD6 remains unclear in crop plants. Thus, Agricultural University of Hebei scientists and partners studied one of the ACD6-like genes (ZmACD6) in maize using the CRISPR-Cas9 system.

A panel convened by the Royal Society Te Apārangi has concluded that New Zealand's (NZ) genetic engineering (GE) regulations need to be updated to cope with the rapid advances of the technology. The findings of their investigation were summarized into several reports that defines what is now considered genetic modification and weighs in the benefits and risks of each specific application.

Researchers from Penn State, Virginia Tech, and Kennesaw University in the US, discovered that parasitic plants steal genes from their host plants and use it to efficiently absorb nutrients from their host. The study focused on the parasitic plant dodder, which has stolen a huge quantity of genetic material from its host plants, including over a hundred functional genes. These genes contribute to the dodder's ability to attach better to its host and siphon its nutrients.
