Million Tadege: Mechanistic understanding of leaf blade lateral expansion in Medicago truncatula

Million Tadege, Ph.D., from the Institute for Agricultural Biosciences at Oklahoma State University, presented "Mechanistic understanding of leaf blade lateral expansion in Medicago truncatula", as part of the Research Seminar Series.

Three Important Lessons We Learned From Medicago in 2017

Research using model species leads to fundamental discoveries in biology, and this holds true of our favorite model legume Medicago truncatula as well. Here’s a roundup of three noteworthy lessons we learned last year from international groups working on Medicago.

 

Studying How Cover Crops, Tillage Affect the Life in Soil

Kelly Craven, Ph.D., an associate professor of microbial symbiology, discusses his work with agronomist James Rogers, Ph.D., to better understand the impacts of cover cropping and tillage practices on the microbial communities, and ultimately the health, of Oklahoma soils.

A resurging interest in cover crops raises a new set of practical questions from farmers looking to improve soil health.

Noble scientist earns prestigious recognition for fourth year

Noble Research Institute chief scientific officer Michael Udvardi, Ph.D., was recently recognized as a 2017 Highly Cited Researcher.

Scientists create new 'toolbox' to better study alfalfa

To help accelerate alfalfa research and cultivar development, scientists at the Noble Research Institute have developed the Alfalfa Breeder’s Toolbox. This comprehensive, web-based portal serves as a community resource that will allow alfalfa breeders and the research community to share, access and visualize data about alfalfa.

Scientists to study plant root function, add knowledge for improving efficient nutrient uptake in agricultural crops

Roots are more than just the location where soil and plants come into contact. They play a critical role in the environment and hold a great deal of promise for helping us improve agricultural sustainability.

Scientists receive $5 million grant to identify, study genes that help legumes access nutrients from soil

Scientists at the Noble Research Institute, Boyce Thompson Institute, Clemson University, Texas Woman's University, University of Delaware and University of North Texas have collaborated on a project that recently received a four-year, $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

Top 5 Resources for Medicago Researchers

Researchers who study legumes have resources available to help them advance agriculture. Here are the top five resources made by and for the Medicago research community.

Funding the Answers to Farmers' Questions

Agricultural research is essential to society, yet it lacks adequate public funding for keeping pace with challenges facing farmers, ranchers and, ultimately, consumers.
