  • Mapping organisational linkages in the agricultural innovation system of Azerbaijan

    This study describes the evolving context and organisational linkages in the agricultural innovation system of Azerbaijan and suggests ways to promote effective organisational ties for the development, distribution and use of new or improved information and knowledge related to agriculture. Graph-theoretic principles and concepts are employed to assess the existing organisational linkages vital ...

  • Farming Innovation: From Ammonia to AgTech Software

    Just over a century ago, the Haber-Bosch process was invented in Germany, enabling the scalable production of copious amounts of ammonia for the very first time. This 1910 Eureka! moment meant farmers could fertilize their crops unlike ever before, growing food on a massive scale. So massive, in fact, a population explosion ensued – humankind went from 1.6 billion in 1900 to 7.7 ...

  • Yield editor Software for removing errors from crop yield maps

    Yield maps are a key component of precision agriculture, due to their usefulness in both development and evaluation of precision management strategies. The value of these yield maps can be compromised by the fact that raw yield maps contain a variety of inherent errors. Researchers have reported that 10 to 50% of the observations in a given field contain significant errors and should be removed. ...

  • Profitability maps as an input for site-specific management decision making

    For over a decade, farmers have been collecting site-specific yield data. Many have formed doubts about this investment because of their inability to directly apply this information as feedback for improving management. The objective of this case-study analysis was to investigate how site-specific decisions can be improved by transforming a long-term multiple-crop yield-map dataset into profit ...

  • Validation of molecular markers associated with net blotch resistance and their utilization in barley breeding

    With the advancement of molecular marker technology and computer software, mapping quantitative trait loci (QTL) for complex traits in agricultural crops is frequent; however, exploitation of these QTL in practical breeding programs is limited. Here we report the validation of molecular markers linked to net blotch resistance QTL and their utilization in a barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) breeding ...

  • Agricultural water poverty in Marvdasht County, Southern Iran

    The paper discusses the application of the Agricultural Water Poverty Index (AWPI) as an assessment tool for agricultural water in rural areas of Marvdasht County, Fars Province, Iran. Along with the global concern, water has become an increasing concern during the recent years in Iran. This paper provides an overview of the AWPI and the methodology to measure AWP by addressing the four key ...

  • Climate change to worsen drought, diminish corn yields in Africa

    Original story at MIT News Nearly 25 percent of the world’s malnourished population lives in sub-Saharan Africa, where more than 300 million people depend on corn, or maize, as their main food ...

  • Insecticide risk map exposes threat to aquatic life

    The global threat that insecticides pose for aquatic biodiversity has been revealed in a recent modelling study that pinpoints areas at greatest risk. The mapping exercise conducted by the researchers reveals that aquatic life in water bodies within 40 per cent of the global land surface is at risk from insecticides running off the ...

  • One-Quarter of World’s Agriculture Grows in Highly Water-Stressed Areas

    All living creatures need two things to survive: food and water. A new WRI analysis shows just how much tension exists between those two essential resources. A new interactive map from WRI’s Aqueduct project reveals that more than 25 percent of the ...

  • Connections: New Green Revolution

    We are in need of a new revolution in how food is grown. A growing population in combination with climate change has put heavy pressure on our current system. The last time this happened (about 50 years ago) we had the Green Revolution to save the day. Major improvements in crop breeding and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides resulted in enormous yield gains in farms across Asia, ...
