Researchers led by Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and the European CHIC Project have identified the genes involved in the production of bitter compounds in chicory using the gene editing tool CRISPR-Cas. Chicory's taproots are a source of inulin, a natural sweetener used in bread and dairy products and as dietary fiber for healthy intestinal function.

The National Food Strategy, the United Kingdom's first commissioned independent review of the government's food policy, was launched last week. Leading groups in the United Kingdom's crop improvement pipeline, from fundamental and applied genetic science to commercial plant breeding, have issued a joint call on the Government to take action on regulation and R&D to harness the unique contribution of plant genetics in securing a more sustainable food future.

A group of scientists from the University of Chicago, Peking University, and Guizhou University has found a genetic tweak that targets RNA to help grow crops that yield significantly more food and show increased drought tolerance.In their initial tests, the scientists found that adding a gene encoding for a protein called FTO to both rice and potato plants increased yields by 50 percent in field tests.

The Philippines has approved Golden Rice, a rice variety genetically engineered to contain additional levels of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. The Philippine Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI) announced that a biosafety permit for propagating the Golden Rice has been issued on July 21, 2021. Golden Rice is engineered to provide up to 50 percent of the estimated average requirement (EAR) for vitamin A of young children, the age group most susceptible to VAD in the Philippines.

The Pre-Summit of the UN Food Systems Summit will set the stage for the culminating global event in September by bringing together diverse actors from around the world to leverage the power of food systems to deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In partnership with the Government of Italy, the Pre-Summit will take place in Rome from 26–28 July 2021.

Researchers from Wageningen University & Research (WUR) have unraveled the onion genome, a breakthrough that will help speed up the development of new onion varieties that are resistant to various stresses such as drought and meet the world's growing demand for onions. Onion is one of the most widely grown vegetables in the world and an important part of people's diet and many countries' cuisines.

A study by a research group in Australia used recent advances in gene sequencing and mapping to develop new sorghum populations using crop wild relatives and local varieties collected from a range of environments across Africa. The different traits of these wild relatives offer potential adaptability to climate change. This new, expansive set of genes and traits from different environments will accelerate and improve the development of new, resilient sorghum varieties adapted to a range of localities and conditions.

A group of scientists from the United States and Sweden analyzed peer-reviewed journal articles about genetically modified (GM) crops to determine if they contain language bias affected by social and linguistic factors. Several interesting conclusions were derived, including articles discussing Bt genetic modification corresponded to a positive stance.

Scientists from China conducted a review on CRISPR technology and applications on oil crops to determine its prospects in the agricultural and food industry. They are optimistic that genome editing in oil crops would flourish in the near future. The review was conducted to provide references for the better use of CRISPR to modify oil crops for higher yield, citing both the potentials and challenges that the scientists identified.

Experts from the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) call for remodeling of the regulatory landscape to unleash enormous gains in productivity through gene editing in agricultural animals. They highlighted this call in the AAVMC/APLU Gene Editing in Agriculture Task Force Report.
