Why does opposition to biotechnology continue to spread? This was answered by Belgian philosophers and plant biotechnologists from Ghent University using cognitive science in their paper published in Trends in Plant Science. According to the authors, the human brain is highly susceptible to negative representations, especially those that appeal to emotions, which are used by biotech critics in their campaigns.

A group of soil fungi classified as arbuscular myccorhizal fungi (AMF) gets sugars from plant roots in exchange for nutrients. AMF dies off if they cannot provide nutrients to the plant. A research team from Cornell University led by Professor Maria Harrison has identified the exact protein transporters needed to keep the exchange going. They found that while the plant prefers phosphate, under certain conditions, it appears that nitrogen will suffice, and a single transporter is required to tell the plant that it's getting nutrients.

Scientists at John Innes Centre and University of Tokyo released the results of their study that challenged the current understanding of how plants absorb nutrients through their roots. It has been a general knowledge that nutrients are transported from the roots to the other parts of the plant, wherein the roots act like simple sponges.

Two billion people suffer from what is known as “hidden hunger,” or micronutrient malnutrition. They get enough macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fat) from their diet, but not enough micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that are essential to good health. Hidden hunger can result in more frequent and severe illness and complications during pregnancy, childbirth, infancy, and childhood.

A strong and collective effort is needed to tackle climate change, which is already having direct and "tragic" consequences for people's lives, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva told Italian lawmakers Thursday. Climate-related factors are contributing to intensified food insecurity for many of the world's most vulnerable people -- worsening situations that were already quite dramatic, he said.

University of Minnesota geneticist Dan Voytas developed Ranger Russet potato using gene editing. Ranger Russet does not accumulate sweet sugars in cold temperatures, prolonging its shelf life. At the same time, it produces lesser amount of acrylamide when fried.
