A course designed to modernize National Agricultural Research System (NARS) breeding programs for improving genetic gains of 9 dryland cereals and grain legumes and to strengthen seed systems in 14 African and Asian countries was held recently in Arusha, Tanzania. The training had 46% women participating and was facilitated by resource persons from 7 CGIAR centers; the Integrated Breeding Platform; a public institution and two private seed companies.

To support decision-making processes and accelerate the uptake of mitigation technologies in Vietnam, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD), with support from the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) and UNIQUE Landuse GmbH, conducted a workshop for the development of a cost-benefit assessment (CBA) tool for climate change mitigation options in rice production.

World meat production is expected to decline in 2019 for the first time in more than two decades, as the African Swine Fever outbreak in China decimates pig herds, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Production of bovine, ovine, poultry and pig meats is forecast to total 335 million tonnes in carcass weight equivalent, 1.0 percent lower than the previous year, according to the Food Outlook published today.

Researchers from Hankyong National University, South Korea, edited three rice genes (OsF3′H, OsDFR and OsLDOX) involved in anthocyanin production. Modifying a trait using CRISPR-Cas9 mutagenesis has been proven to provide advantages in identifying gene function and crop improvement. The results of the gene editing are published in Plant Biotechnology Reports.

An international cross-institutional research group has identified the mechanism by which liverwort (Marchantia polymorpha) asexually reproduces through the development of clonal progenies (gemmae). The team discovered the gene ‘KARAPPO', which is essential for initiating gemma development in liverwort. The findings of this research are expected to contribute fundamental knowledge towards technological developments to boost agricultural and horticultural cultivation efficiency.

The European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Vytenis Andriukaitis, defended the position of the European Union as the second-largest importer of GM soybean globally. He mentioned that the claims of biotech critics against the importation of GM feed or food in Europe is "scaremongering" and "a conspiracy theory".

The Golden Rice humanitarian project has been recognized by Project Management Institute (PMI) as one of the Most Influential Projects of the past 50 years. It has the distinction of being the only plant-based biotech project in the list of honorees. Golden Rice is a not-for-profit project, which means that individuals and organizations involved in its development have no financial stakes in the crop.

Thomas Bruice, one of the fathers of bioorganic chemistry, died on February 15, 2019, at the age of 93. He was born on August 25, 1925, in Los Angeles, California. He is survived by his wife, Paula Yurkanis Bruice, a renowned author of undergraduate organic chemistry textbooks. The founding and maturing of the bioorganic chemistry field coincided with the golden era of physical organic chemistry, when chemists strove to describe the plausible mechanisms for organic reactions.

A new study published in Nature Communication reveals that organic farming is actually worse for climate change. The paper, authored by scientists from Cranfield University and University of Reading in the United Kingdom, reports that organic farming might further contribute to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to decreased use of farm inputs and increased soil carbon sequestration. It might also exacerbate emissions through greater food production to make up for lower organic yields.
