University of Adelaide research scientist Matthew Tucker is changing the developmental path of grain in cereal crops to better influence yield and quality. Tucker will be taking advantage of plant cells' ability to change identity as the plant develops, to determine how to create cereal grains that are healthier to eat and produces more yield.

In March 2014, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) approved the project "Enhancing NAMA Readiness: Building Capacity in Integrated Food and Energy System in Viet Nam", supported by FAO. The project includes the establishment of NAMA Working Group in Agriculture for strengthening technical capacity and awareness of the staffs within the Ministry and institutes

Scientists from John Innes Center (JIC) and Chinese Academy of Sciences discovered how the memory of cold, which is important for flowering, is deleted every generation in plants. The results are published in Nature in a paper titled Epigenetic reprogramming that prevents transgenerational inheritance of the vernalized state.

Researchers from University of Georgia discovered the important proteins in the synthesis of xylan, a sugar found in plant's cell wall and a major component in wood, forage and grain. Previous studies reveal that the lack of xylan in plant's cell wall has resulted to failure of plants to grow normally due to the inability of xylem to transport efficiently from the roots to the shoot system.

European governments must help combat hunger and malnutrition on a global level, as failure to do so will only boost migration flows and stoke conflicts, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva.  "Food insecurity and conflict go hand in hand" he said, noting that extreme climatic events, troubles in Africa and the Near East and now the Ebola outbreak in West Africa tend to spill over national borders and into other regions in a globalized world, often through forced migration.

South Dakota State University (SDSU) plant scientist Senthil Subramanian is leading a new research that will identify the plant mechanisms that direct and coordinate the formation of soybean nodules. With this knowledge, Subramanian hopes to develop soybeans that are more efficient in making nodules and fixing nitrogen by manipulating the molecular mechanisms that regulate these functions.

A seed development programme was launched in Kenya to support the advancement of vibrant, market-oriented and diverse seed sector in Africa. The Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD Africa) approach would address the challenges of access to quality seed, which affects agricultural productivity, income and resilience among smallholder farmers.

When we see a gap, be it physically in front of us or figuratively speaking, we are compelled to find a way to mind it, to fill it, to close it. When we talk about the yield gap – the difference between actual crop yields and those potentially attainable in a given region – in the agricultural research and development world the same knee-jerk reaction compels us – “must close the gap!”
