Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) Director for Agricultural Research Mario Pablo Estrada has again expressed his support for transgenic crops, stating that these will help Cuba become more independent in agricultural food production, particularly for maize and soybeans. Estrada further explained that biotechnology can also help Cuba develop better seeds and achieve increased yields

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researcher Distinguished Professor James Dale and his team have successfully developed a line of Cavendish bananas resistant to Panama disease tropical race 4 (TR4). Professor Dale said the field trials showed that high expression of the gene RGA2 derived from a wild banana provides resistance to TR4 disease. RGA2 is also present in Cavendish but it is not expressed.

The question of whether firstborn children have a height advantage over later-born children is important, given the persistently poor height outcomes in developing countries. Using data on young Indian children, we show that later-born children lag behind firstborns in stunting outcomes. This is only true, though, if higher birth-order children were born within 3 y of the birth of their elder siblings.

Harold Abraham Scheraga, an eminent Professor of chemistry and biophysics at Cornell University for 73 years, died on August 1, 2020 at the age of 98. Scheraga (known to his colleagues as Harold) has been a pioneer in the general field of macromolecules (polymers, proteins, DNA, and so forth). He started his own research in 1947 (when proteins were viewed just as ellipsoids of colloidal assemblies of amino acids),

Several solutions are now being trialed in Climate-Smart Villages across AfricaAsia, and Latin America, led by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). Established in high-risk areas that are likely to suffer most under a changing climate, the villages function as real-life laboratories for cutting-edge climate-smart technologies, information services, development and adaptation plans, and supportive institutions and policies.

An international research team led by the University of Göttingen studied the molecular mechanisms of plant immune system and was able to show the connection between a relatively unknown gene and resistance to pathogens.The research team from Plant Responses To Eliminate Critical Threat (PRoTECT), an International Research Training Group (IRTG) founded in 2016 with the University of Göttingen and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver aimed to identify and describe a gene from a disease-resistant plant.

 In another step towards creating a "digital FAO", the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is committing to increasing by 50 percent its delivery of digital financial transfers and vouchers to beneficiaries. As part of joining the Better Than Cash Alliance, FAO is also pledging to expand its use of digital payments in at least ten more of its Decentralized Offices. Director-General QU Dongyu set these ambitious targets, while officially joining the Better Than Cash Alliance.

Over 2.6 million people in Somalia are expected to be in extreme food insecurity according to the latest joint technical assessment released by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET). The report cites poor rainfall, flooding and desert locusts among the main contributing factors and warns that the situation could worsen through mid-2021 in the absence of large-scale and sustained humanitarian assistance.

In a survey conducted to assess public knowledge and perceptions about gene-edited crops in Australia, 40 percent associate the technology with genetically modified (GM) crops.The survey, conducted by a polling firm hired by CropLife Canada, also showed that 35-40% of Canadians believe that GM foods are not safe to eat, even if scientific evidence shows that they are as safe as their conventional counterparts.

Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) has conducted an annual survey for the past 15 years to monitor any effects genetically modified (GM) rapeseed and GM soybean have on the country's biodiversity. Their latest data showed that both GM crops are not likely to affect biodiversity. The survey started in 2006 and its annual conduct covers approximately 5km in radius from the GM crops' site
