Scientists at Oxford University and The Sainsbury Laboratory discovered vital clues on how the pathogen Phytophthora infestans responsible for the Irish potato famine adapted to spread between plant species. The study published in Science is the first to explain how pathogens switch from targeting one species to another through changes at the molecular level.

A study at Purdue University led by botany and plant pathology Professor Tesfaye Mengiste has identified the protein MED18 that controls a variety of important plant processes, including flowering time, resistance to fungal diseases, and response to environmental stress factors. Mengiste said that understanding and manipulating MED18 could lead to improved resistance to necrotrophic fungal diseases in plants.

A new research conducted by the USDA Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) shows that potatoes are excellent tubers in extreme environmental conditions. In the study led by ARS agricultural engineer David Fleisher, the team measured how potato plants would respond to elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels and the increasingly erratic rainfall patterns expected to result from global climate change.

Chemists at University of California, Davis invented a new process that can make gasoline-like fuels from cellulosic materials such as farm and forestry waste. According to Mark Mascal, lead author of the study, the feedstock for the new process is levulinic acid, which can be produced by chemical processing of materials such as straw, corn stalks or even municipal green waste.

The largest textile fiber company in Burkina Faso, SOFITEX, has signed a financial agreement worth 75 billion CFA Francs (~150,000 million dollars) with local banks, to finance the collection, transportation and ginning of cotton, from the 2013-2014 planting season. The agreement was signed on 21 January 2014, between SOFITEX Director General Jean-Paul Sawadogo and Cheick Travaly, director general of ECOBANK Burkina and leader of the Bank pool, in the presence of Aïssata Diallo, representing the Ministry of Economy and Finances at the event.

In a major advancement to climate change-ready crops research, the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) has identified 40 germplasm lines of chickpea with resistance to extreme weather conditions such as drought, high temperature, and salinity.

Bangladesh has formally started cultivation of the country's first genetically modified (GM) crop, Bt brinjal. Agriculture Minister Matia Chowdhury officially distributed Bt brinjal saplings to 20 farmers from Jamalpur, Gazipur, Pabna, and Rangpur districts at a ceremony held at the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC) organized by Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) on January 22, 2014.

University of Missouri plant science researchers have found a receptor in plants that could be a vital component in the way plants respond to threat, including pests, environmental changes, and plant wounds. Led by plant sciences Professor Gary Stacey, the researchers are focusing on the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main energy source inside a cell. Stacey and his fellow researchers screened 50,000 plants over two years and found the receptor that aids in plant development and helps repair a plant during major events.

A research group from the University of Wisconsin-Madison has reported the discovery of a hormone and receptor that control cell expansion in plants. Led by biochemist Mike Sussman, the group describes a signaling pathway that regulates cell expansion in the root cells of Arabidopsis plants. The study describes a hormone secreted by the plant and a surface receptor known as a protein kinase. The hormone uses the receptor to influence a cell's ability to elongate, to accommodate the growth and development of roots, stems, leaves, and other plant parts.
