  • Aerial imagery system helps save water

    Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists are developing a system that saves water by using aerial imagery and ground-based sensors to determine the irrigation needs of small sections of cultivated fields. Conventional irrigation practices, even when based on modern management and water application techniques, can be wasteful because they assume crop water needs are the same throughout an ...

  • Historically plants limited CO2 sinks

    Weathering, or natural degradation, of silicon-containing rocks should have produced a significant carbon sink over the past 24 million years. A new study suggests that plants have reduced this sink and kept CO2 levels at a higher level. Natural sinks of CO2 play an important role in adaptation and mitigation policies for climate change. In order to predict future climate change, it is necessary ...

  • Plant strategies for optimising nitrate intake

    The less nitrogen there is in the soil, the better plants are at using it. Researchers from INRA, CNRS and CIRAD, in cooperation with Czech colleagues, have recently shed light on the crucial role of a protein that enables plants to not only assess their environment but also activate the proper adaptive response based on the conditions. This research, published in the 2 March 2015 issue of Nature ...

  • Watering the world

    Original story at MIT News Many farms in drought-prone regions of the U.S. rely on drip irrigation as a water-saving method to grow crops. These systems pump water through long thin tubes that stretch across farm fields. Hundreds of dime-sized drippers along the length of each tube trickle water directly onto a ...

  • United Water’s Lake DeForest Treatment Plant Receives ISO 14001 and 9001 Certifications for Environmental and Quality Management

  • Plants host pathogenic bacteria from livestock farming

    Disease-causing bacteria resulting from livestock farming can contaminate food products and find their way to humans. This occurs remarkably effectively via plants, which explains why recent outbreaks due to infection with EHEC and other E. coli and Salmonella strains are regularly attributed to the consumption of fresh vegetables. These are the findings of researchers from Wageningen UR ...

  • NASA Discovers Unprecedented Blooms Of Ocean Plant Life

     Scientists have made a biological discovery in Arctic Ocean waters as dramatic and unexpected as finding a rainforest in the middle of a desert. A NASA-sponsored expedition punched through three-foot thick sea ice to find waters richer in microscopic marine plants, essential to all sea life, than any other ocean region on ...

  • No Climate Benefit Gained by Planting Temperate Forests

    SAN FRANCISCO, California, (ENS) - Planting forests in temperate regions such as the United States and Europe may not yield any benefit for the global climate, and may instead contribute to warming, according to a new study set for presentation Saturday at the American Geophysical Society annual meeting in San Francisco. By contrast, trees planted in tropical rainforests ...

  • Crop water use efficiency

    Crop water use efficiency (WUE), or yield per unit of water used, can be improved through irrigation management and methods, including deficit irrigation (irrigating less than is required for maximum yields) and supplemental irrigation (irrigating to supplement precipitation so as to avoid crop failure or severe yield decline). Thus, WUE is key for agricultural production with limited water ...

  • Singapore PUB selects CH2M as consultant to develop fifth desalination plant

    Singapore’s national water agency, PUB, recently announced its selection of CH2M as the consultant for the development of its fifth desalination plant on Jurong Island under a design-build-own-operate arrangement.
