University of Oxford Early maize farmers selected for genes that improved the harvesting of sunlight, a new detailed study of how plants use 'doubles' of their genomes reveals. The findings could help current efforts to improve existing crop varieties. Oxford University researchers captured a 'genetic snapshot' of maize as it existed 10 million years ago when the plant made a double of its genome – a 'whole genome duplication' event. They then traced how maize evolved to use these...

The high prices of the past five years are therefore expected to fall in the early part of the next five years, leading farmers to limit their cropland devoted to corn and focus on higher-margin crops. For these reasons, industry research firm IBISWorld has added a report on the Corn Farming industry to its growing industry report collection. New York, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2014 The Corn Farming industry experienced solid growth during the five years to 2014 on the heels of fresh biofuel...

Potential regulatory changes could limit corn and soybean output and cost Ontario's economy OTTAWA, July 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Restricting the use of neonicotinoids -- an insecticide commonly used by crop farmers -- could reduce revenues from corn and soybean production by more than $630 million per year in Ontario. The province's gross domestic product would be cut by nearly $440 million if neonicotinoids were not available for use, according to a Conference Board of Canada report issued...

Society for Experimental Biology Scientists have identified a new mutant plant that accumulates excessive amounts of starch, which could help to boost crop yields and increase the productivity of plants grown for biofuels. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology looked for excessive starch accumulators in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana that had been mutated using Agrobacterium tumefaciens. In one of the mutant plants, the starch granules were...

Fodder
2013-05-18 07:51:02

Fodder is a term used in reference to the feed cut, sometimes prepared, and brought to domesticated farm animals such as cows, goats and pigs. Some fodder is prepared using oils and mixed rations that are mixed in with several different types of sprouted grain and legumes such as alfalfa, clover, corn, and several different types of grass. In the countries that allow it, fodder can also consist of animal origins such as ruminant meat and bone meal, typically found in cattle feed. The USDA,...

Three Sisters
2013-05-18 07:30:48

Three Sisters crop is a technique of gardening used primarily by Native Americans, but gardeners of any kind may also use this technique. These crops use three types of plants; in the Tewa tribe, they use four. The traditional seeds used are corn, beans, and squash. There are many benefits from this method, the first being the use of the corn stalks for the beans to grow on. The beans themselves then provide nitrogen for the corn and squash, while giving the corn amino acids, lysine, and...
