  • Carbon dioxide & methane rose sharply in 2007

    Global levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the primary driver of global climate change, increased by 0.6 percent last year alone, by 19 billion tons. Additionally methane rose by 27 million tons after nearly a decade with little or no increase. NOAA scientists have released these and other preliminary findings as part of an annual update to the agency’s greenhouse gas index, which tracks data ...

  • Warming threatens to cut crop yields

    Projecting the impact of climate change on global food production is no easy task. A warming climate might result in better crop yields in one region, but cause drought and crop failure in another. A new US study, published in the journal Environmental Letters, assesses the odds of a major slowdown in global food production over the next 20 years. Overall, the study’s authors say, the ...

  • Genetic engineering could cut the cost of biofuels

    Plant genetic engineering could play a major part in reducing the cost of biofuel production from food crop wastes such as rice straw or from non-food crops such as willow and poplar. A recent study suggests further research is needed to develop plants that are better suited for biofuel production, through genetic modifications. According to the study's author, biofuels have the potential to ...

  • Treating animal manure with borax cuts odor

    Hydrogen sulfide is one of the compounds contributing to the stink from manure storage pits on hog farms. Microbial activity in the manure releases the hydrogen sulfide and other compounds. Today, at an American Society of Microbiology meeting in Boston, Mass., Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist Cheryl Spence reports the results of a study in which 'dusting' hog manure with borax ...

  • Recession and renewables cut greenhouse emissions in 2009

    Greenhouse gas emissions decreased very sharply in 2009, by 7.1 % in the EU-27 and 6.9 % in the EU-15. These most recent results, compiled by the European Environment Agency (EEA), confirm estimates made by the EEA last year. This decrease was largely the result of the economic recession of 2009, but also sustained strong growth in renewable energy. Professor Jacqueline McGlade, ...

  • Drain rice fields to cut methane, say scientists

    Global methane emissions from rice paddies could be cut by 30 per cent if fields are drained at least once during the growing season and rice crop waste is applied off-season, according to a study. Methane is a significant contributor to global warming and is produced by certain types of bacteria in oxygen-deprived environments — such as those feeding on the organic waste in water-covered ...

  • Are you cutting grass at the right stage of growth?

    As attention turns towards silage harvesting, an important step (and one often forgotten about) in the whole procedure is cutting. Decisions made prior to cutting, such as cutting date and time, can have a major impact on the quality of your silage. As part of Cut to Clamp, a new initiative from Volac, which aims to help farmers make consistently better silage, we take a look at the important ...

  • Egyptian invention cuts rice irrigation water by haf

    Experts and stakeholders in Egypt warn of imminent water poverty as a result of the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, which is about to become operational. Meanwhile, agricultural production consumes about 85 per cent of the country’s water resources, half of which goes towards rice irrigation. Rice cultivation consumes more than 10 billion cubic meters of water annually, or more than ...

  • US `plans cut to global agricultural research funds`

    Despite rising food prices and restrictions on food exports the United States is planning to cut funding to international agricultural research, scientists claim. In February this year officials from the US Agency for International Development (USAID) warned that a cut in funding was likely. The actual figure is yet to be announced, but it could be as much as 75 per cent according to a ...
