Biofortified Blog Norman Borlaug Ringtone - It has been almost a month since we released the Play it Hard music video with Nobel laureate Dr. Norman Borlaug, and the video has received over 9,000 views (when you count CIMMYT's channel as well as ours)! We're really pleased to hear that people enjoy the video, and we hope that it draws attention to the series of articles and interviews that we will be publishing on the Biofortified Blog throughout the coming year. Now yo... http://ow.ly/2FTQlC

Biofortified Blog Ecosystems are not smart, we are. - In my recent post Don’t mimic nature on the farm, improve it, I argued that we should cast aside the ideas of “balance of nature” and “nature knows best” in designing farming systems. There is no reason to “follow nature’s lead” if nature has not been optimized by any process that we know of, and therefore consists of mostly random mixes of species dictated primarily by natural disturbances. But if we don’t, what are... http://ow.ly/2FpQ78

Biofortified Blog Q&A about Plenish® soybeans - In the post What do you want to know about Plenish® Soybeans? we invited you to ask questions of Susan Knowlton, a Senior Research Manager with DuPont and the lead of the DuPont Healthy Oils team (see her bio below). Dr. Knowles has provided detailed responses to some of your questions. 1. Will this oil be available to the general consumer, and if so, how will we be able to tell it comes from these soybeans? Plenish high o... http://ow.ly/2FiNn5

Biofortified Blog No soup for you - Close your eyes for a minute (after this paragraph) and think about the technology you have around your house. Maybe your TV, DVD player, your smartphone, your tablet. Maybe you like the way it works. But could it be better? Could it be safer? Could it be more environmentally friendly? Would a new OS provide new features? What if researchers and engineers worked for years and years on a way to improve your favorite products, but other... http://ow.ly/2FLkh7

Biofortified Blog Two Paths Taken - As I write this, the agricultural community has just finished a week acknowledging and celebrating the work of Norman Borlaug.  Borlaug, of course, is widely known as the father of the Green Revolution, having increased the production of staple crops (particularly wheat) around the globe to unprecedented levels.  He single-handedly stymied Malthusian predictions of inevitable global starvation, thereby changing the global perspective ... http://ow.ly/2FpVLI

Biofortified Blog How does BT work? - Life, at it's most basic level is really just a series of chemical reactions. Biochemists and molecular biologists, such as myself, look at how life works at the very most basic level. Unfortunately, this stuff is all very complicated and there are few resources online to explain how this work. Anastasia has a wonderful post about how Bt corn works in transformed plants, titled simply 'Bt'. In the post, she focuses on how the protei... http://ow.ly/2FoBEi
