What do wholegrain foods look like around the world?
Climate change will see pests moving countries and continents as conditions become more favorable.
Technical coordination between research and development partners is key to breed maize varieties that respond to the diverse needs of small farmers.
Researchers discuss how phenotyping can assist breeding and make the case for investing in new methodologies.
New blog published by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs argues that balancing food security, rural livelihoods, water for agriculture and air quality need not be a zero-sum game.
Breeders are developing wheat varieties that have stable grain yield under low-water and high-temperature conditions.
Our climate change-ravaged food systems cannot wait for the gradual progress of gender quality.
Experts note that policies alone are not enough — they need to go hand in hand with strong initiatives to make agriculture a safer, more equal and respectful space for both women and men.
Is it up to the village men? Or women, too?
Modern phenotyping tools are crucial for crop improvement and breeders can profit much more from them.
For the first time widespread monitoring examines how farmers are coping with climate stresses.
Half a century earlier, scientists collected and preserved samples of maize landraces in Morelos, Mexico. Now, descendants of those farmers were able to get back their ancestral maize seeds and, with them, a piece of their family history.
How can we feed more people while protecting nature and biodiversity?
New research recommends targeted assistance and engagement with small farmers in rural Guatemala to improve livelihoods and reduce migration pressures.
New publications: Optimum nitrogen fertilizer rates for rice and wheat in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of India
The results of the study will allow farmers to get the best crop yields while saving money and reducing harmful nitrous oxide emissions.
