    What Does CRISPR Mean for Modern Agriculture?

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published 9 months ago

    The USDA began reporting corn yield estimates in 1866. That year, the average farm was harvesting 24... 6 bushels of corn per acre... Yield averages in corn remained relatively flat for nearly 70 years from the mid-1800’s until hybrids were widely introduced and adopted by farmers in the 1940’s. Then, in the late 1990’s genetically modified (GM) corn hit the market and Roundup Ready hybrids became the new norm for farmers looking for a more efficient way to manage weeds...

    Times Are Tough but Don't Cut This One Input

    By Fertility And Soils

    Published 1 month ago

    This is an unquestionably tough time to be a farmer. A trade war has beaten down already marginal prices, inputs have risen more than anyone could have predicted and many of us have experienced a so-called thousand-year weather event--not only once but twice in the last four years. You hear the same advice all around during times like this: “The farmers who will survive and thrive during tough times are low-cost producers. ” For the most part, this is very good advice. Farmers are inundated with a number of questionable inputs and, during the toughest of times, it’s not hard to see areas where we can cut rates or cut out products completely...

    What’s the function of Mycorrhiza?

    By Darren Chan

    Published 2 months ago

    Introduction of MycorrhizaExcessive dependence on chemical fertilizers can result in the destruction of a large number of beneficial microbial communities in the soil and a decrease in soil activity. To improve the current soil ecosystem with serious damage and improve soil fertility, it is imperative to supplement soil beneficial microorganisms. The application of microbial fertilizer is the most direct and effective method. Symbiotic bacteria are fungi that need to grow with plants, but do not harm plants and they are beneficial to plant growth. The symbiotic bacteria can grow together with the roots of some plants to form a special symbiont-exogenous mycorrhiza, which exchanges substances with each other through the mycorrhiza...

    Chitosan & mycorrhiza complement each other for soil healthy

    By Darren Chan

    Published 4 days ago

    Researchers are studying the effects of chitosan on mycorrhiza. Good effects on mycorrhizal and root systems of related plants can be observed, leading to healthier crops growth and fruiting. The enzyme-resistant enzymes (chitinase) produced by plants are particularly effective against the phytopathogenic fungi cell wall, but they don’t have such function against the cell wall of mycorrhiza. It would be no harmful increase in the mycorrhiza, chitinase after observing the soil chitosan-treated. The increasing in lignification of plant cell walls after treatment with chitosan can defend the mycorrhizal fungi of arbuscular or ectodermal layers, because both of them were contacting the side roots of plants near the root crown, meanwhile the rhizomes are completed and form the root hairs...
