*  Plant Breeders' Rights

Plant Breeders rights became an accepted branch of intellectual property with the adoption of the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) in 1961.. The Convention protects the variety of the plant not the plant itself therefore the subject matter of protection is the variety and not the whole plant. A variety is a new plant that is distinct from any other variety that is known to agriculture or published in any botanical literature. A variety is 'known to agriculture' if man has cultivated it. A variety is 'known to botanical literature' if it has been recorded. Therefore any person who discovers a new plant variety that is wild, that man can use or domesticate, can apply to the competent authority for a Grant of a Plant Breeder's Right.. The UPOV Convention 1961 was subsequently amended in 1978 and 1991. Kenya was the first country in Africa to domesticate the UPOV Convention. Kenya's Seed and Plant Varieties Act Chapter 326 is modeled on UPOV 1961. South ...

*  THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Analysis finds increased CO2 and warming beneficial for agricultural crops

As the air's CO2 content rises, most plants exhibit increased rates of photosynthesis and biomass production (see our Plant Growth Database[1]), which should enhance the amount of food, fiber and timber production that can be utilized to feed, clothe and shelter earth's expanding human population. However, some individuals have suggested that the growth-promoting effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment may be largely negated by the global warming that is predicted to occur in the near future by a number of state-of-the-art climate models, which outcome could compromise our ability to sustain a greater human population without increasing arable land acreage. Thus, we turn to the scientific literature to see if plants will - or will not - continue to exhibit CO2-induced growth increases under conditions of predicted future warming, which we do here by reviewing what has been learned about the photosynthetic and growth responses of CO2-enriched agricultural crops grown at both ...

*  Rosalind Peterson -- Chemicals, Photosynthesis & Solar Power Connection

NewsWithViews.com. NOAA lists more than fifty current and ongoing weather modification programs being implemented across the United States on a yearly basis. In addition to the programs listed by NOAA, there are private, university, military, and ongoing government sponsored atmospheric testing and heating programs underway in Alaska and across the United States. Artificial weather modification can impact all of us by chemically polluting our water supplies, changing agricultural crop production cycles and micro-climates, reducing crop production, and water availability. Since most experimental weather modification programs use chemicals released into the atmosphere the public could be subjected to increasingly toxic or unknown substances that could adversely impact agricultural crops, pollute drinking water supplies, and cause declining tree health. If the weather is changed in one state, region or county it changes local micro-climates needed for ...

*  C4 photosynthetic trait discovery | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences

To meet projected demand for food, fibre and energy, crop productivity needs to continue on an upward trajectory. The world population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050 which will require food production to nearly double to maintain today's standards. Current trends suggest that productivity improvements for the world's four major crops will fall well short of this goal [1]. Agricultural producers draw on a multitude of technologies to ensure efficient, sustainable, stable and high-quality crop production. Genetics has been the foundation of crop improvement since the dawn of agriculture. New genome technologies have transformed genetics into an information-rich (driven) discipline.. Photosynthesis is a viable plant productivity improvement target [2-5]. Since its discovery [6], C4 photosynthesis has become widely recognized as an effective photosynthetic mechanism for hot, dry climates, increasing both nitrogen and water use efficiency [7]. The desire to transfer the C ...

*  Polling the anti-GM vote - Pharyngula

Yes? And? It's a tool, sure, but that can't possibly be an objection to a tool being unusable for sustainable agriculture. And focusing on genetically modified plants is odd: all of our crops are genetically modified, often beyond recognition. Modern corn looks almost nothing like teosinte, and is the product of thousands of years of human meddling with crops…this argument reduces to a complaint that the very subtle fine-tuning of specific genes with modern molecular techniques is somehow more troubling than the wholesale radical modification of a whole species by extreme artificial selection. I just don't get it, unless it's just some crazy Luddite bias. There are legitimate complaints about how agribusiness can use genetic modification to lock up strains for selfish economic reasons, but the topic of the debate isn't about abuses of the technique - it's about the potential for genetic engineering to improve sustainability.. Anyway, it's a debate with an internet poll ...

*  New method for associating genetic variation with crop traits | EurekAlert! Science News

A new technique developed at the John Innes Centre will allow plant breeders to introduce valuable crop traits even without access to the full genome sequence of that crop. The technique, published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, links important agronomic traits in crop plants with active regions of the genome. Instead of requiring knowledge of the crop's complete genome, it identifies only expressed genes.
