Chinese scientists used gene editing to produce a soybean variety with increased yield and protein content. Their research may increase domestic soybean production and help with global food security. Soybeans capture nitrogen from the air for growth and protein production. However, soybean supernodulation mutants display stunting and have reduced yields due to overconsumption of carbon.

A study published in Plant, Cell & Environment shows improved drought resistance and fruit yield of tomatoes through endoreduplication. This study opens opportunities to develop drought-resistant tomatoes that can withstand agricultural challenges brought about by climate change. Drought resistance is crucial for maintaining tomato yield and quality under drought conditions. Drought-resistant tomatoes are less likely to suffer from issues such as fruit cracking,

Two scientists, Dr. Geoffrey Hawtin OBE, Founding Director and Executive Board member at the Global Crop Diversity Trust, and Dr. Cary Fowler, currently the U.S. Special Envoy for Global Food Security, have been named the 2024 World Food Prize Laureates. They were chosen by the World Food Prize Laureate Selection Committee for their longstanding contribution to seed conservation and crop biodiversity. The two men played key roles in establishing the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, which today holds 1.25 million seed samples of more than 6,000 plant species in an underground facility in the Arctic Circle.

Research published in Food and Chemical Toxicology shows that feeding rat and broiler chickens with grains derived from genetically modified (GM) crops shows no adverse effects on their health and performance. The results of this study support the current literature suggesting the safe use of GM crops in feeding animals.The 90-day rat feeding study was conducted in accordance with the test guidelines of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

ASCA7 targets to equip Asian scientists, regulators, and other stakeholders with the knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of agri-biotech. The program focuses on three key areas: agri-biotech applications, policy environment, and biotech communication. This comprehensive approach empowers participants to contribute towards implementation of science-based regulations that support the commercialization and trade of agri-biotech products.

The policy forum informed Philippine policymakers on how biotech products are developed for commercialization in an adopting country and the Philippines. It also aimed to discuss strategies on how biotech products developed in the Philippines could be commercialized systematically and efficiently. The event was attended by about 100 participants composed of Congressmen and their staff, via Zoom, boosting the awareness of the policymakers on the regulatory path of the technologies.

In Ghana, pests and diseases cause food and agriculture-related losses valued at USD 1 billion annually, impacting the economy and the livelihoods of smallholder farmers. Climate change makes the challenge harder to address as warmer temperatures attract more invasive species. So, 11 public and private sector organizations collaboratively developed an Early Warning and Rapid Response System for Pests and Diseases to protect the country’s food system.

Cassava, known for its versatility and resilience, offers numerous opportunities for value addition, transforming it from a basic staple into a valuable commodity. Value addition in cassava involves processing it into various products, increasing its economic value and marketability. The IITA-Malawi Cassava Unit organized Cassava Chat every Friday to educate and enrich staff’s knowledge of cassava. Given the changing climate and the impact of inflation on maize production in Malawi, cassava is emerging as a potential solution.

In the face of intensifying El Niño and La Niña weather events, effective anticipatory action is crucial to shield and better equip communities ahead of shocks as it helps to save lives and protect livelihoods by preventing damage and losses to crops, livestock, productive lands, water and infrastructure, said Beth Bechdol, Deputy Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

A study published in The Plant Journal investigated the role of NtG3BPL1 in tobacco resistance against chilli veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV) infection. This research opens opportunities to develop antiviral strategies against ChiVMV through gene editing. ChiVMV is a plant virus that infects plants causing mottled leaves, leaf curling, chlorosis, and reduced overall quality of crops. These symptoms contribute to significant yield losses of tobacco plants.
