Plant scientists see the ways agriculture can be more environmentally friendly. They have ideas for tools to help farmers and ranchers. To solve some of the planet’s most pressing problems. And now they seek to overcome a philosophical division with a new vision in plant breeding.
Maria Monteros, Ph.D., visits France to identify the genetic history of a 233-year-old pecan tree and learn what makes it so resilient.
Noble scientists are using the gene editing technique CRISPR to improve legume cover crops.
Scientists at the Noble Research Institute have developed the Alfalfa Breeder's Toolbox (available at: alfalfatoolbox.org) as a comprehensive, web-based portal to address practical challenges for alfalfa production and accelerate breeding to develop new enhanced cultivars with better performance.
Genome editing is a new and promising technique that can help plant breeders more efficiently identify and build better tasting, higher yielding crops that are more resistant to pests and diseases and more tolerant of drought.
DNA testing has become an economically viable tool that should be used when making selection decisions for commercial cattle producers.
Genomic technologies make it possible to tap into a plant’s natural abilities to grow more efficiently in drought, nutrient-limited environments and other challenging circumstances.
