Can GM Technology End Hunger in Africa?

For centuries, biotechnology has been used to modify food for human consumption. In recent decades, scientists have created transgenic crops, (2) which are widely promoted as solutions to world hunger. Commonly cultivated genetically-modified (GM) crops exhibit traits such as pest resistance, herbicide tolerance, or both. (3) Other traits, such as drought resistance, nutrient enrichment and enhanced robustness lead to further improvements in food productivity and quality.

Cereal Crops: Guide to Identifying and Managing Nutrient Deficiencies in Cereal Crops

'Cereal Crops: Guide to Identifying and Managing Nutrient Deficiencies in Cereal' is a 50-page field guide (8 1/2 x 11 in. size, wire-o bound) designed to describe the underlying causes of nutrient deficiencies in maize, wheat, rice, sorghum, pearl millet, and barley, with tips on how they might be prevented or remedied.

Better Crops With Plant Food

Few publications available today can claim the longevity of Better Crops with Plant Food (BC), the quarterly publication of the International Plant Nutrition Institute. The magazine originated in 1923. It is not easy to describe this unique magazine. With an identity somewhere between an agronomic research journal and a marketing information series, BC provides a steady vehicle for reporting news from research related to nutrient management.

Despite Climate Change, Africa Can Feed Africa

Climate change comes with never-before-experienced impacts. For example, crop yields and growing seasons will decrease even as changing rain patterns will worsen people’s access to water. Yet Africa’s population is projected to reach two billion in less than 37 years, and in 86 years three out of every four people added to the planet will be African.
