Simple agricultural innovations, such as soil probes to detect water and salinity levels at different depths, have not only helped smallholder farmers conserve scarce resources, they’ve reduced conflict within communities and fostered harmony in families. Interventions in Zimbabwe have demonstrated that returns on investment in R&D go far beyond increased yields and productivity.

Governance, innovation and capacity building are the high roads to coping with water scarcity in Iraq and neighboring countries, which have been home to agricultural civilizations for 5000 years, FAO Director-General QU Dongyu said today. "Effective water governance needs transparency, meaningful participation from diverse stakeholders and robust accountability mechanisms in place, he said.

Zinc is one of the essential micronutrients for plants and animals because of its vital functions in many proteins. Zinc deficiency affects approximately 2 billion people worldwide, mostly those who are on plant-based diets relying on crops from soils lacking in zinc. Thus, the researchers searched for ways to increase zinc absorption of plants using the model plant, thale cress (Arabidopsis).

The International Canola Pan-genome Consortium, an international group of leading academic and commercial companies from the USACanada, Europe, and Israel has announced the successful completion of the canola/rapeseed pan-genome. The international consortium generated a full genome sequence of 12 canola and rapeseed varieties that were assembled using NRGene's DeNovoMAGIC™ software.

Scientists designed CRISPR RNAs that can potentially work against 99% of flu strains documented in the last 100 years, and may also be effective against the contagious variants of the coronavirus that are currently circulating. Their study is the first to show that mRNA can be used to express the Cas13a protein and make it work directly in lung tissue. It's also the first to demonstrate the Cas13a protein is effective in stopping SARS-CoV-2 replication.

The Turkish Government, through the Official Gazette published on February 27, 2021, has announced the Biosafety Decisions on import of genetically engineered (GE) soybean and corn events. The announcement in the Official Gazette included approvals and cancellations.Under the Turkish Biosafety law, approval for biotech events automatically expires after 10 years, and a new application must be made to renew the events.

The scientists used Raman Spectroscopy, partnered with a machine learning algorithm, to study the outer membrane vesicles (OMV) released by a bacterium found on the roots of dryland wheat. They referred the microbiome found in the plant as its 'second genome'. They have identified the type of stress necessary for the bacteria to release OMVs. The bacteria form a film around the roots of wheat when exposed to extreme heat which protects the crop from drought.
