Modified soybeans yield more in future climate conditions

            3 May 2017 By 2050, we will need to feed 2 billion more people on less land. Meanwhile, carbon dioxide levels are predicted to hit 600 parts per million—a 150% increase over today’s levels—and 2050 temperatures are expected to frequently match the top 5% hottest days from 1950-1979. In a three-year field study, researchers proved engineered soybeans yield more than conventional soybeans in 2050’s predicted climatic...

SCIENTISTS DEVELOP GE RICE THAT FLOWER ON DEMAND

            Crop Biotech Update: April 6, 2017 University of Tokyo researchers genetically engineeredrice that does not flower until it comes in contact with a specific fungicide. The results are published in Nature Plants. Takeshi Izawa and colleagues developed non-flowering rice plants by overexpressing a floral repressor gene (Grain number, plant height and heading date 7) to block natural flowering. Then they co-transformed plants with a rice florigen gene...
