Fungal disease could reduce global wheat production by 13% until 2050

Phys.org | 3 min. read

Climate change poses a threat to yields and food security worldwide, with plant diseases as one of the main risks. An international team of researchers surrounding Prof. Senthold Asseng from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now shown that further spread of the fungal disease wheat blast could reduce global wheat production by 13% until 2050. The result is dramatic for global food security.

3D food printing vital for creating plant-based alternatives, with buckwheat being ‘most promising’ ingredient

Emerging technologies such as 3D food printing (3DFP) are unlocking opportunities to develop nutrient-rich and personalized plant-based substitutes for traditional meat, say researchers. A group of researchers from Kazakhstan conducted a review of recent studies to explore the utilization of common plant-based protein sources, such as soybean, pean, lentil and buckwheat, for 3DFP.

Diversity of chemical composition and nutritional value in grain from selected winter wheat cultivars grown in south-western Poland

Given the low protein coverage by legumes in Poland, alternatives (with high protein content and high nutritional value) are being sought (with high protein content and high nutritional value of protein) that could replace these plants. Cereal cultivation dominates in Poland; hence, the search for high-value plants will also consider this group of plants. The aim of the study was to compare the nutritional value of proteins from two wheat cultivars.

NASA scientists use AI to beat climate change in farming

NASA is using satellite imagery and artificial intelligence to transform modern farming. Hawai’i’s agricultural production and food systems have suffered for decades because of ongoing issues of climate change, commercial exploitation, and policy failures. NASA is stepping in to lend its expertise in hopes of addressing food security and rebuilding local agriculture.

New EU project to create climate-resilient cereal crops

BioAtlantis Ltd. has announced the signing of the European project BOOSTER, funded by the European Commission within the framework of the Horizon Europe program. BOOSTER aims to improve drought tolerance in both maize and teff, while simultaneously exploring the potential for transferring species-specific drought responsive features. By exploiting natural genetic variations to achieve drought-tolerant genotypes, and by developing plant biostimulants derived from living organisms, BOOSTER will harness the natural resources available to develop new varieties of drought-tolerant agricultural crops.
