It seems to work for other plants they've have tested as well—even under drought-like conditions
Researchers develop a nutrient-enriched, gel coating for seeds that soaks up moisture and could buffer plants against drought
Crop residue left on the ground locked up carbon in the soil four times longer than if they were cleared away
A research team set out to determine which cities would likely cope better (and worse) with climate threats to their food systems. Their advice: eat globally.
Using microneedles, a technology borrowed from medicine, researchers mine real-time data to make farming hyper-efficient—and more sustainable
Researchers find that carefully phasing in field-ready innovations, such as nitrogen-efficient crops and low-emissions tractors, could significantly cut the emissions from conventional row-crop agriculture
Researchers find that emissions resulting from transport, energy use, and food waste have increased swiftly over the last 40 years - and are almost equivalent to the emissions from farming, itself
Researchers invent a lightweight, reusable sponge that can soak up phosphorus pollution - and release it for recycling and reuse later on
A cancer-detecting device can be used to identify fish species in just 15 seconds
Researchers experiment with “morphing” food to enable more sustainable packaging. Behold, flat-packed 3D pasta.
It reduces plastic packaging waste, cuts storage space, shrinks the carbon footprint of transportation—and tastes great
