Researchers at the Noble Research Institute are taking a novel approach by investigating small peptides as a way to potentially help improve plant stress tolerance.
Nitrogen fertilizers are necessary but also costly. Researchers are looking into ways to improve plants' natural abilities to efficiently use nitrogen.
Jill S. Baron, Ph.D., senior scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey and senior research ecologist with the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University, presented "Too much of a good thing: Toward an International Nitrogen Management System" as part of the Research Seminar Series at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 26.
One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture is economic uncertainty. Farmers and ranchers can mitigate economic risk by building resiliency in their operations, and Noble research aims to help.
Since there is economic risk in applying fertilizer, we generally do not recommend applying fertilizer unless there is a significant advantage to doing so. Therefore, the general recommendation of not fertilizing native grass is correct in most instances.
Scientists are working to improve plants and offer other solutions so that farmers and ranchers don’t need as much synthetic nitrogen fertilizer.
Noble scientists are using the gene editing technique CRISPR to improve legume cover crops.
