  • Tracking Your Data In All Your Unusual Places

    Let’s be honest: I say “level measurement,” you think “fluid in a tank.” It’s ok; most people do.

  • How farm policy used to work

    In the period between the 1930s and 1992, farm bills generally instituted compensation policies that took the form of price supports. These policies were designed to manage the surplus production that resulted from centuries of developmental policies while allowing U.S. farmers the chance, with hard work and good management skills, to provide their family with a livelihood. Compensation policies ...

  • Food security demands diversity

    The challenge calls for divergent solutions — small-scale, tech-based initiatives as much as long-term research. Last month our Spotlight pages explored sustainable food production — how farmers can grow more food with scarce resources, and within ...

  • Science’s role in growing diverse, nutritious food

    Can science meet the demand for more diverse and nutritious food? Jan Piotrowski investigates. The riots that swept Africa in 2007 and 2008 in response to the spiralling costs of staple crops brought the effects of food shortages into sharp focus. Images of unrest circled the globe, and the consequent instability brought to the forefront of political debate a question that had ...

  • Boost grain preservation before production

    Better grain storage would save money and feed over a billion, says Digvir S. Jayas. It deserves more attention. Annually over 2.6 billion tonnes of grains — cereals, oilseeds and pulses — are grown and then stored along the chain from producers to consumers. Most countries do not systematically report how much grain becomes unfit for human consumption during storage, but ...

  • Pore scale coupling of fluid displacement and unconsolidated sediment mechanics

    In unconsolidated sediments, capillary pressure in the pore space may be large enough to move grains apart during drainage. This motion alters the pore throat sizes which control subsequent displacement in the sediment. We present two grain scale models for this coupled process. In both cases, we assume fluid interfaces are controlled by capillary forces, and determine the detailed geometry of ...
