A group of Iranian scientists documented the current status of transgenic crops in Iran in their paper published in Scientific Reports. It traces the historical events of the transgenic crop industry in the country as well as an in-depth analysis of how the global biotech crop scenario affects Iran's biotech field. The study aimed to investigate the economic impacts and political scopes of genetically modified (GM) foods, and the policies made by different countries in the world and Iran.

Researchers from Nanjing Agricultural University reported an enhanced and comprehensive genome of the Chinese hazelnut which consists of valuable information for its molecular breeding and genetic improvement. The researchers used de novo whole-genome sequencing and identified 764 genes involved in oil biosynthesis, 96 of which are directly involved in the biosynthesis of oleic acid.

The European Commission has published a study on new genomic techniques (NGTs) that shows the techniques have the potential to contribute to a more sustainable food system as part of the objectives of the European Green Deal and the Farm to Fork Strategy. The study also finds that the current GMO legislation adopted in 2001, is not fit for purpose for these innovative technologies. The Commission will now start a wide and open consultation process to discuss the design of a new legal framework for these biotechnologies.

Dr. Desiree M. Hautea of the Institute of Plant Breeding of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) was recognized this year by the Asian Scientist Magazine for her contributions in the research and development towards adoption of the Bt eggplant in the Philippines. Dr. Hautea is the project leader of the Bt Eggplant Project, an initiative of UPLB which started in the early 2000s that aimed to develop and commercialize transgenic eggplant varieties that are resistant to the eggplant fruit and shoot borer (EFSB) in the Philippines.

Working with private seed companies, ICRISAT is helping integrate more women and youth into seed production enterprises in Tanzania. Recently we supported the efforts of the seed company Mbozi Highlands (MHEG), to enhance the production, promotion, marketing and adoption of new high-yielding varieties of groundnut and sorghum in the country. This was by designing and developing training manuals to train farmers, identifying and contracting 92 new seed producer groups (women and youth);

The world's smallholder farmers produce around a third of the world's food, according to detailed new research by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Five of every six farms in the world consist of less than two hectares, operate only around 12 percent of all agricultural land, and produce roughly 35 percent of the world's food, according to a study published in World Development.
