UF/IFAS Researcher Aims to Improve Bacteria Treatments for Cows, Humans

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

University of Florida scientists received a USDA-NIFA grant to research treatments for antibiotic-resistant bacteria in cattle. The researchers hope the newly developed antimicrobials could also hold possibilities for treating antibiotic-resistant bacteria in humans.

National Livestock Movement Bans May Prove Economically Damaging

University of Warwick

New research from the University of Warwick has pioneered an economic perspective on controlling livestock diseases. Focusing on Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD), bovine TB (bTB) and bluetongue virus (BTV), the researchers draw striking conclusions about the role of movement bans in controlling an outbreak.

Could Duckweed Feed the World?

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Climate change is threatening the world’s food supply and the risk of supply disruptions is expected to grow as temperatures rise, according to a new United Nations report co-authored by Rutgers human ecology professor Pamela McElwee. So, how would we feed everyone if the Earth’s population hits 9.7 billion in 2050 as projected? Duckweed, the world’s fastest-growing plant, which has more protein than soybeans and is a traditional food source for people living in parts of Southeast Asia, could be one of the key solutions, according to Eric Lam, a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Plant Biology in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers University–New Brunswick.

Compost key to sequestering carbon in the soil

University of California, Davis

By moving beyond the surface level and literally digging deep, scientists at the University of California, Davis, found that compost is a key to storing carbon in semi-arid cropland soils, a strategy for offsetting CO2 emissions.
