Water and salinity

Water and salinity Irrigation of agricultural crops accounts for 70% of global fresh water consumption. Sustainable agriculture requires improved plant survival during short-term periods without water and more efficient water use. Although breeding has altered flowering time, height, and other traits that affect water use, the multigenic nature of plant drought responses and a... ↪ read more...

Improving phosphorus use

Improving phosphorus use Phosphorus, like nitrogen, is an essential nutrient and limits crop growth in nearly 40% of agricultural land, but estimates suggest this could be as much as 70%. Orthophosphate is the only bioavailable form for plants and is a nonrenewable resource obtained from mining. Because of its reactivity with soils rich in iron and aluminum oxides and conversion by... ↪ read more...

Plant biology for the environment and sustainability

Plant biology for the environment and sustainability Our reliance on plants as resources is ancient and only promises to expand in the future. Faced with a growing population, estimates suggest the need for a 70% increase in agricultural production by 2050 and highlight the parallel challenges of maintaining food security, minimizing environmental damage, and managing water and resource use under shifting... ↪ read more...
