  • Corn spots: Study finds important genes in defense response

    When corn plants come under attack from a pathogen, they sometimes respond by killing their own cells near the site of the attack, committing "cell suicide" to thwart further damage from the attacker. This cell sacrifice can cause very small, often microscopic, spots or lesions on the plant. But up until now it's been difficult to understand how the plant regulates this "spotty" defense mechanism because the response is so quick and localized.

  • Diversified farming practices might preserve evolutionary diversity of wildlife

    As humans transform the planet to meet our needs, all sorts of wildlife continue to be pushed aside, including many species that play key roles in Earth's life-support systems. In particular, the transformation of forests into agricultural lands has dramatically reduced biodiversity around the world. A new study by scientists at Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley, in this week's issue of Science shows that evolutionarily distinct species suffer most heavily in intensively farmed areas. ...

  • How to mix pesticide and choose compound drug

    As various plant diseases and insect pests appear very often and most of the drug can only prevent one kind of plant disease and insect pest, many farmers hope to receive comprehensive treatment by mixing two kinds or several kinds of drugs at one time; the other people also hope to improve the controlling effect and fast-acting property of drug by mixing the drug. Below three principles should be paid attention to no matter whether ...

  • Speckled beetle key to saving crops in Ethiopia, researchers say

    An invasive weed poses a serious and frightening threat to farming families in Ethiopia, but scientists from a Virginia Tech-led program have unleashed a new weapon in the fight against hunger: a tiny, speckled beetle. The weed, called parthenium, is so destructive that farmers in the east African nation have despairingly given it the nickname "faramsissa" in Amharic, which, translated, means "sign your land away." Farmers have doused the weed in pesticides and ripped it out ...
