COLLEGE STATION – Two tools from industry are being applied to the small grains breeding program by a Texas AgriLife Research team to help identify valuable drought-resistance traits in wheat faster and less intrusively than with normal practices.

Maybe it’s in the shoot, maybe the root. Texas AgriLife Research scientists are on a quest to find where different wheat varieties popular in the High Plains get their drought tolerance.

Citrus growers worldwide who currently have no cure for a devastating, tree-killing disease may soon find relief from an unlikely source: spinach.

COLLEGE STATION – Algae typically isn’t associated with cattle feed, but a Texas AgriLife Research scientist and graduate student have found some interesting results that may change this during their three-phased study.

More than 2 million people a year – most of them children – die from foodborne or waterborne illness, a fact that an International Atomic Energy Agency official said is unacceptable since technology is available to curb those losses.

Being able to pinpoint molecular mechanisms within a wheat plant to help researchers select for drought tolerance and quality might be the most important aspect of a new Texas AgriLife Research and Bayer CropScience agreement, officials say.
