Agriculture is characterized by always looking for new methods, varieties or technologies that allow it to progress and remain at the forefront in crop production. Along these lines, studies that analyze the impact of plantation behavior depending on how it was designed, established and managed, are of great interest to the sector.

Milk that cannot be marketed, because it contains colostrum or because it comes from animals that are under treatment, represents an estimated volume of 16 million liters in Argentina and, in general, is used for feeding calves.

A new artificial intelligence (AI) tool available for free in a smartphone app can predict near-term crop productivity for farmers in Africa and may help them protect their staple crops—such as maize, cassava and beans—in the face of climate warming, according to Penn State researchers.

Wild plants grow in all agricultural fields that reduce crop yields by competing with them for water, light and nutrients. To control them, the most frequent management among producers is based on the use of herbicides. These agrochemicals are most effective when applied at the time weeds barely emerge.

Researchers from the University of Cambridge's Sainsbury Laboratory (SLCU) and Department of Plant Sciences have discovered that drought stress triggers the activity of a family of jumping genes (Rider retrotransposons) previously known to contribute to fruit shape and colour in tomatoes.

Iowa State University scientists are working toward a future in which farmers can use unmanned aircraft to spot, and even predict, disease and stress in their crops. Their vision relies on machine learning, an automated process in which technology can help farmers respond to plant stress more efficiently.
