Attracting wild bees to farms is a good insurance policy (4/21/2014)

Attracting wild bees to farms is a good insurance policyInvesting in habitat that attracts and supports wild bees in farms is not only an effective approach to helping enhance crop pollination, but it can also pay for itself in four years or less, according to Michigan State University research. ...> Full Article


Scientists say new computer model amounts to a lot more than a hill of beans (4/21/2014)

Scientists say new computer model amounts to a lot more than a hill of beansCrops that produce more while using less water seem like a dream for a world with a burgeoning population and already strained resources. This dream is closer to reality for University of Illinois researchers who developed a new computer model to help plant scientists breed better soybean crops. The model predicts a soybean crop with 8.5 percent more productivity, but using 13 percent less water, by breeding for slightly different leaf distribution, angles and reflectivity. ...> Full Article


Green engineering for waste management (4/20/2014)

Green engineering for waste managementDemede Engineering & Research, a company that receives support from the Business Incubator at the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid's Science Park, designs and manufactures prototypes of waste Management plants dedicated to research. Their designs are based on the principles of 'green engineering,' which they also apply to the development of techniques for the sustainable production of graphene and the synthesis of pharmaceutical products. ...> Full Article


Young women: Eat more fruits and vegetables now to protect your heart later (4/19/2014)

A diet rich in fruits and vegetables for middle-aged adults has been associated with reduced rates of coronary heart disease, especially in women. Now, research supported by the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation shows that for women, what you eat in your 20s may be just as important for your middle-aged heart. ...> Full Article


New study finds biochar stimulates more plant growth but less plant defense (4/18/2014)

New study finds biochar stimulates more plant growth but less plant defenseIn the first study of its kind, research undertaken at the University of Southampton has cast significant doubt over the use of biochar to alleviate climate change. ...> Full Article


Satellite shows high productivity from US corn belt (4/18/2014)

Satellite shows high productivity from US corn beltData from satellite sensors show that during the Northern Hemisphere's growing season, the Midwest region of the United States boasts more photosynthetic activity than any other spot on Earth, according to NASA and university scientists. ...> Full Article


Using more wood for construction can slash global reliance on fossil fuels (4/18/2014)

A new Yale-led study finds that increasing the wood harvest to the equivalent of 34 percent or more of annual wood growth to meet construction demands worldwide could drastically reduce the global reliance on fossil fuels while protecting biodiversity and carbon storage capacity. ...> Full Article


Urban gardeners may be unaware of how best to manage contaminants in soil (4/18/2014)

Ancient African cattle first domesticated in Middle East, MU study reveals (4/17/2014)

A team of University of Missouri researchers has completed the genetic history of 134 cattle breeds from around the world. In the process of completing this history, they found that ancient domesticated African cattle originated in the 'Fertile Crescent,' a region that covered modern day Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Israel. ...> Full Article


Agroforestry systems can repair degraded watersheds (4/16/2014)

Agroforestry systems can repair degraded watershedsAgroforestry, combined with land and water management practices that increase agricultural productivity, can save watersheds from degradation. A study conducted by the World Agroforestry Centre in the Gabayan watershed in eastern Bohol, Philippines, has shown that agroforestry systems create a more sustainably managed watershed that allows people living there to benefit from the ecosystem. The benefits include higher crop yields, increased income and resilience to climate change. ...> Full Article


Hormone levels linked to survival of deer calves, study suggests (4/16/2014)

Using tobacco to thwart infectious disease? (4/15/2014)

Using tobacco to thwart infectious disease?An international research group led by Arizona State University professor Qiang 'Shawn' Chen has developed a new generation of potentially safer and more cost-effective therapeutics against West Nile virus, and other pathogens. The therapeutics, known as monoclonal antibodies and their derivatives, were shown to neutralize and protect mice against a lethal dose challenge of West Nile virus -- even as late as four days after the initial infection. ...> Full Article


New Capsicum annuum pepper contains high concentrations of beneficial capsinoids (4/14/2014)

Germplasm release 509-45-1 is a small-fruited Capsicum annuum L. pepper released in 2013 by the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture. Fruit of 509-45-1 contain high concentrations of capsiate and dihydrocapsiate in both immature and mature fruit. The release of 509-45-1 will provide researchers and plant breeders with a new source of capsinoids and advance research and production of the non-pungent biologically active compounds. ...> Full Article


Resistance is not futile (4/14/2014)

Resistance is not futileResearchers with the Joint BioEnergy Institute have identified the genetic origins of a microbial resistance to ionic liquids and successfully introduced this resistance into a strain of E. coli bacteria for the production of advanced biofuels. ...> Full Article


Nitrogen source determined significant for inflorescence development in Phalaenopsis (4/14/2014)

Nitrogen source determined significant for inflorescence development in PhalaenopsisResearchers investigated the accumulation and use of fertilizer nitrogen (N) during the vegetative and reproductive growth stages of Phalaenopsis related to inflorescence development. Experiments showed that inflorescence is a major nitrogen sink during the reproductive stage of Phalaenopsis. Fertilizer applied during the reproductive stage was found to be a significant N source for inflorescence development of the orchid, while additional experiments indicated the importance of providing ample N fertilization at all growth stages. ...> Full Article
