Historically, farmers and ranchers have looked to USDA and their universities to develop the “next big thing” in plant and animal breeding. They still do, even though the private sector has emerged as a key source of delivering innovation to the farm, while the public sector – confronted with declining investments from taxpayers – has been more focused on basic research. That’s why the “troops” behind a new revolution in agricultural technology and precision breeding represent some familiar faces, as well as many new and . . .

UC Davis researchers are exploring the survival strategies of wild and parasitic plants to help cultivate the climate-resistant food crops of tomorrow

by Greg Watry

To meet a projected population of 9.8 billion by 2050, global food production needs to grow an estimated 70 percent. Rising patterns of extreme weather are challenging food security. To adapt and feed the world, we need stronger crops.
