Digging through the weeds and finding gluten in ryegrass (sort of)
New research has found gluten-like proteins in ryegrass, which might – or might not – be a problem for people with gluten intolerance.
Reducing disease and agrichemicals in livestock production systems
Vaccines, chemical preventatives, breeding disease resistant animals and clever management practices are a few strategies we're working on to reduce disease and agrichemicals in livestock production systems.
Durable solutions for pest control in agriculture
Effective chemical options for pest control in several agricultural industries may be substantially reduced in the future. A change in thinking will be needed throughout the supply chain.
Overcoming a chemically limited future for weed, pest and disease control in agriculture
Agriculture uses an array of chemicals to control weeds, pests and diseases. However, a systems approach to reduce, redesign or replace chemical use will be needed to meet new demands.
Wheat’s complex immune system requires a smart health response against disease
Covid-19 has shown us the fragility of our health, and the power of science to rapidly respond. Similar breakthroughs are waiting in the wings if a comparable disaster befell agriculture.
A short history of agricultural chemical usage and development
Throughout human history, pests have greatly impacted agriculture and society through crop failure. In modern times, chemical solutions to the problem have been hit and miss.
