Genetically modified crops have been grown and consumed in many countries for over 30 years. Yet, despite the benefits they offer to human health, crop management and humanitarian support, genetically modified (GM) foods remain a controversial topic.
Hundreds of South Australian primary producers, industry representatives and regional community members have had their say about their priorities for building resilience to future droughts.
In a review paper published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, researchers at the University of Adelaide’s School of Agriculture, Food and Wine have summarised seven years of research published in more than 20 international journals, on the effect of drought on cereal plants such as wheat and barley.
The University of Adelaide, as part of an extensive collaboration with industry and the South Australian Government, will lead a new drought resilience hub in South Australia. Announced today, the hub will undertake research, development, extension, adoption and commercialisation activities to improve drought resilience and preparedness on SA farms.
A team of Australian and German researchers has discovered a novel pathway that plants can use to save water and improve their drought tolerance.
An international team of researchers including the University of Adelaide has demonstrated that climate change is responsible for the changes in the flow and water volume of rivers globally, with major implications for Australia.
