Brett Smith for redOrbit.com With the world's population expected to jump from 7 billion people this year to an estimated 9 billion by 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations predicts that worldwide food production will need to increase by 70 percent over the next four decades to meet the growing demand. Two new reports published in Nature Genetics provide a window into how the production of corn, or maize, could be modified to ramp up production of the...

Tropical maize is a valuable genetic resource that can help scientists identify the specific genes controlling daylight response. Tropical maize proves to be a valuable genetic resource, containing genetics not found in USA Corn Belt maize. Most tropical maize varieties respond to the long summer day lengths that occur in U.S. growing regions by flowering late. This delayed flowering response results in poor yields, effectively trapping the useful genes and hindering their incorporation into...

Scientists have identified the genes related to leaf angle in corn (maize) "“ a key trait for planting crops closer together, which has led to an eight-fold increase in yield since the early 1900s. (Nature Genetics, Jan. 9, 2011.) The study, led by researchers from Cornell and the U.S. Department of Agriculture "“ Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) at Cornell and North Carolina State University, is the first to relate genetic variation across the entire maize genome to...

The fall of 2009 was a truly special season for the Emsland Group: For the first time in the history of the largest German potato starch manufacturer, it processed Tilling potatoes, which exclusively contain amylopectin starch. Not only can nutritional starches for emulsifying soups and desserts be extracted from it "“ it can also be used for paste and smooth coating for paper and thread production. "This potato is the first product in Germany developed by Tilling that achieves market...

By Kurakake, Masahiro Noguchi, Masahiro; Fujioka, Kiyofumi; Komaki, Toshiaki ABSTRACT Pasting characteristics of maize starch heat-treated with six different water-to-ethanol ratios (%wt base 0:100, 10:90, 20:80, 30:70, 40:60, 50:50) were investigated; treated starches were called EW 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50, respectively. Endotherms in DSC analysis shifted to a higher temperature as the water content in water-ethanol mixture increased. The removed amount of fatty acids was much higher in...

By Hellin, Jon Erenstein, Olaf Maize was probably introduced into India by the Portuguese in the 16th Century. Whilst it has long been an important crop in India, in the last 10-15 years maize output has grown rapidly: maize now ranks as the third most important food grain crop in India. For maize production to grow there need to be some policy changes, argue Jon Hellin and Olaf Erenstein of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT). India is now the third largest egg...

By Zhu, Thianming Jackson, David S; Wehling, Randy L; Geera, Bhima ABSTRACT It has long been recognized that limitations exist in the analytical mediodology for amylose determination. This study was conducted to evaluate various amylose determination methods. Purified amylose and amylopectin fractions were obtained from com, rice, wheat, and potato and then mixed in proportion to make 10, 20, 30, 50, and 80% amylose content starch samples for each source. These samples, considered amylose...
