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.
The Noble Research Institute is screening natural diversity for root traits in crop and pasture species. With new knowledge, breeding programs can release cultivars with improved root systems.
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.
Plants need to eat to live. Their food commonly comes in the form of fertilizer. But the plants rarely finish their dinner. Excess washes away, wasting time and money as well as causing environmental concerns. Scientists are looking within the plants themselves to unlock their natural abilities to more efficiently use nutrients.
Bermudagrass is a common warm-season perennial grass used in agriculture and for turf. Improving nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) is a common target of bermudagrass breeding programs.
