Indian corn producers, after scoring virtually no major export deal for months, are counting on local chicken farms to absorb millions of tonnes of the grain as poultry output heads for yet another record year.
Scientists have noticed a change in the atmosphere. Plants are taking in more carbon dioxide during the growing season and giving off more carbon in the fall and winter. Recent research shows the massive corn crop in the Corn Belt may be contributing to that deeper breath.
The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) has recommended two new hybrid maize seeds suitable for improved yields and productivity. It said the Abontem and Omankwa, varieties of seeds have high disease resistance, and favourable for all weather patterns.
First-generation farmer Randy Dowdy of Valdosta, Georgia, has now set the world record for corn yield with an average of 503 bushels per acre using DEKALB corn seed genetics. Dowdy achieved the record as part of the 2014 National Corn Growers Association’s 50th annual National Corn Yield Contest.
Farmers face all sorts of production challenges from weeds, bugs and diseases. The combination of challenges is a reason why Monsanto has more than a dozen projects in our corn R&D pipeline dedicated to protecting a farmer’s corn yield.
The Government has taken steps to boost Maize cultivation in order to increase the production of Maize to fulfill the higher requirement of Maize. Maize is the most important coarse grain, for which around 30,000 ha of land area devoted annually, the second highest extent of land next to rice, the Department of Agriculture revealed.
Burkina Faso has just launched promotion of a high-yielding maize varieties project, thanks to funding amounting to 1.1 billion CFA francs by the West African Economic and Monetary Union WAEMU), the Burkinabe Ministry for Scientific Research told APA.
Corn tassels and leaves are backlit by the sun at UW-Madison’s West Madison Agricultural Research Station. Botany Professor Edgar Spalding is using new technology to better quantify the complex process of corn growth.
AMES, Iowa – A research team including Iowa State University and United States Department of Agriculture - Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) personnel has identified genetic structures in corn that may shed light on how crops respond to floods and other environmental stresses.
BEIJING (Reuters) - China's state corn stockpiles are expected to climb by a record volume this year, as Beijing's efforts to boost demand with a tax rebate for corn starch exports struggle to stimulate
“Although this was my first year planting drought-tolerant corn, it is a thing of the future,” says Mark Meyer, Nehawka, Neb. “As stewards of the land, farmers need to think long term about how we use water. Drought tolerance and water optimization, hopefully, will allow us to produce the same amount or more grain with less water.”
Positional cloning is a genetic mapping technique used to pinpoint the location of specific traits of interest, such as disease-causing genes or mutations, within the genome. Very simply, this map-based technique involves crossing mutant individuals with wild-type individuals and examining the offspring ...
European Union production of genetically modified corn fell last year, even as output of conventional maize soared to a record high – but there is no sign of imports of biotech products slackening off.
NRGene, a leader in agricultural big data genomic analysis, and The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) are collaborating to generate the denovo genome assemblies of 20 tropical, subtropical, and highland maize genomes as part of CIMMYT’s collaborative Seeds of Discovery project (SeeD).
After it was first domesticated from the wild teosinte grass insouthern Mexico, maize, or corn, took both a high road and a coastallow road as it moved into what is now the U.S. Southwest, reports aninternational research team that includes a UC Davis plant scientistand maize expert.
