Holistic Approach to Genetics and Plant Breeding

Holistic Approach to Genetics and Plant Breeding

The research shows how, with the help of a fast, non-destructive and green analysis method, near-infrared spectroscopy, we can obtain a global overview that mirrors how the entire chemical composition of nutrients in a barley grain is changed, for example, by a mutation in a single gene. This is in contrast to current conventional plant breeding, where you do not have an overview of all the changes that the barley grain undergoes when a single gene is modified.

Drones as Smart Agricultural Tools for Pesticide Use in Farms

Drones as Smart Agricultural Tools for Pesticide Use in Farms

Drones could soon be adopted as essential tools for various agricultural tasks; however, with respect to their use in farm management, research is still lacking. To address this issue, researchers in Japan compared drones to well-established technologies for spraying pesticide over rice paddy fields. Using statistical data, the researchers explore both advantages and limitations of drones and whether they currently offer an edge regarding costs, capacity, and management efficiency.

Reversing the Move to Cities

Reversing the Move to Cities

While technologies are emerging for cities to be independent in food, water and energy, safe and pleasant, progress is mostly poor and global warming threatens migrants overwhelming cities. By all means, let us see the smart city advances take place that are in the IDTechEx report, "Smart Cities Market 2021-2041: Energy, Food, Water, Materials, Transportation Forecasts", but it would be prudent to try to reverse the move to cities that the UN and others see resulting in 70-80% of us in them by 2050.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?

An Introduction to Electro-fuel (e-fuel) Technology

Production of e-fuels promises a route to effectively limitless, carbon-neutral fuels without the controversy of biofuels around land use, sustainability and competition with food. E-fuels can also be referred to under the umbrella of power-to-X (P2X), X being liquid or gaseous products, including hydrogen, methane, alcohols or drop-in hydrocarbon fuels. However, e-fuels are still at an early stage of development with various routes that can be used for production.
