  • New Tools for Plant Genome Editing Developed

    By Isla Miller

    Published Sep 28 

    Recently, academician Liu Yaoguang's team from College of Life Sciences, South China Agricultural University, The State Key Laboratory for Conservation and Utilization of Subtropical Agro-Bioresources, and Guangdong Laboratory for Lingnan Modern Agriculture, published a research paper entitled The ScCas9++ variant expands the CRISPR toolbox for genome editing in plants online in Journal of Integrative Plant Biology. This research uses optimized CRISPR/ScCas9++ new variants derived from Streptococcus canis to develop a wide-targeted plant genome editing and cytosine single-base editor, providing new opportunities for plant functional genomics research and crop genetic improvement research tool. At present, CRISPR/Cas genome editing technology has become an important tool for functional genomics research and crop genetic improvement. However, its editing range is often limited by PAM motifs and their editing windows. Therefore, the development of Cas variants with a wider range of PAM recognition is an important research direction to expand the scope of editing use of CRISPR/Cas systems...

    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    By John Moody

    Published May 21, 2018 

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans. Some are making midnight snack plans as well. Raccoons, rabbits, and the worst of all in our area - deer... Getting ahead of the curveFarmer’s should take advantage of these problems and concerns and position themselves and legislative change that gives them more flexibility to deal with deer issues as part of the solution - providing more tools to farmers to control and prevent deer damage while also selling it’s side benefits - greater public safety on our roadways and help in suppressing diseases that are negatively impacting more and more Americans...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past... Without technicians capable of running and maintaining these new tools, farms cannot tap into such precision herbicide application... individual animal management tools, technology in tractors, sensors, etc...

    What’s root knot nematode?

    By Darren Chan

    Published May 7, 2019 

    Root-knot nematodes are one of the three most economically damaging genera of plant-parasitic nematodes on horticultural and field crops. Root-knot nematodes are very small and they parasitic the roots of thousands of plant species, including monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous, herbaceous and woody plants. They dwell in the soil, attack the roots of the plant to extract water and nutrients. As a result, large galls or “knots” can form throughout the root systems of infected plants... Agricultural controlStrengthen inspection and quarantine, and try to reduce or even eliminate the transmission of root-knot nematodes through seedlings, machinery, tools and other human factorsReasonable rotation can reduce the amount of soil nematodes and reduce the occurrence of diseasesTreat sick strains thoroughly and fertilize and irrigate rationallySelect anti-root knot nematode varieties or choose root-knot nematode rootstock for graftingBiological controlThe biological preparation has the advantages of good compatibility, eco-friendly...

    7 Ways to Measure Soil Health Improvements

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Mar 7, 2019 

    While there are numerous reasons for using cover crops, a primary one is improving soil health. In fact, it’s the one benefit most farmers using cover crops have experienced: In the most recent Cover Crop Survey Annual Report, of those who rated the statement, “Using cover crops has improved soil health on my farm,” 86% agreed or strongly agreed. The report notes that it’s interesting and heartening that “soil health reflects an embrace of a long-term, hard-to-quantify benefit of cover crops, and that for the past two surveys, it has achieved the top spot by garnering 86% of the responses. ”While soil health may be harder to quantify than benefits like biomass production or input savings, there are ways of measuring how cover crops are making a difference in your soil...

    What to look for when hiring farm employees

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 9, 2018 

    With the increasing use of precision ag tools and increased machinery efficiencies, the whole dynamic of hiring farm employees has changed as well. Being a farm worker these days means being a technician, which in many cases requires a multi-disciplinary skillset. Gone are the days of needing a laborer with only strong back and a determined attitude. The game has changed and those who don’t recognize that the characteristics of what they’re looking for in farm employees has changed will be left trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. They say don’t send a boy to do a man’s job...
