Nitrogen fertilizers are necessary but also costly. Researchers are looking into ways to improve plants' natural abilities to efficiently use nitrogen.
NF402 and Heavy Grazer II have both shown excellent winter hardiness when compared to other oat cultivars grown in the Southern Great Plains.
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.
Pecan scab is the most economically important disease of pecan in the southeastern U.S. and can significantly impact the amount of quality pecans produced in a season.
The rumen microbiome is very complex, and the diversity of ruminal microorganisms can be affected by diet composition, genetics and environmental factors.
Scientists are working to improve plants and offer other solutions so that farmers and ranchers don’t need as much synthetic nitrogen fertilizer.
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.
Drones are helping researchers better understand cotton root rot disease in alfalfa and how to manage it.
Microscopes have become an integral component of youth education programs at the Noble Research Institute and throughout Oklahoma.
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.
