All crops have been modified through some form of improvement, whether to enhance yield, taste, resilience or another factor. My passion is to continue accelerating the development of crop varieties that are more resistant to climate change and pests. This will make food supplies more secure and will also improve the quality of life for

The intensity of allergic responses like hay fever and asthma may vary depending on the various geographic and climatic zones from which ragweed pollen originates as well as the level of environmental pollution. Different plant species’ pollen displays varying degrees of aggression. This is the finding of an inter-university research team that included members from

Researchers have discovered that despite the soil purification efforts made in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, the amount of particle radiocesium rapidly decreased while suspended river sediment levels remained consistently high upstream. Additionally, the length of unsustainable sediment impacts was shortened by the quick regrowth of vegetation. Future cleanup initiatives should evaluate the
