Scientists discover a way to produce fungus resistance in barley without genetically modifying it.
There's a surprising use for used coffee—one that solves another environmental problem, too. Coffee can remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury from water.
Most of the crops planted on lands bought by foreign investors are highly water intensive as compared with the crops traditionally grown by local farmers
Researchers demonstrated that a diet based on an agricultural byproduct and one based on a weed were just as good as one using chicken feed for raising crickets.
Inoculating poplar trees with a dose of bacteria and fungi that live within the plants allowed the poplars to grow more and enabled them to better withstand an induced drought.
Scientists have developed a rice line that requires less fertilizer without sacrificing yield.
Microalgae, which are rich in marine omegas, can be produced more sustainably than fish or vegetable oil. And tilapia grow well on them.
A recent study has documented for the first time that antibiotics given to cows also increase the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane from cow dung.
For the US, the researchers found that agricultural emissions are responsible for about half of all manmade pollution.
Researchers test a biofeedback system which monitors photosynthesis in the plant and automatically adjusts light levels according to the plants' needs.
