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.

Massive networks of drains, pipes and tiles that enable food production on much of the world's most productive cropland are due for expansion and replacement to meet the demands of agricultural intensification and climate change. How that infrastructure is updated will have enormous consequences on food production and the environment, according to a new study. 


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.


After years of research, Chinese experts have recently launched a new variety of Cavendish banana resistant to TR4, which is used for export. The new variety was developed using chemical mutagenesis techniques. Other countries, including the Philippines, are in advanced stages of developing their own varieties through gamma irradiation.
