New coating protects nitrogen-fixing bacteria from heat and humidity, which could allow them to be deployed for large-scale agricultural use.
The findings point to faster way to detect bacteria in food, water, and clinical samples.
Less expensive than refrigerated cold rooms, this cooling chamber offers accessible cold storage for smallholder farmers.
Unique barcodes scannable in a mobile application will enable food-aid stakeholders to follow individual items from production through delivery.
A new computational tool empowers decision-makers to target interventions.
Inaugural J-WAFS Grand Challenge aims to develop enhanced crop variants and move them from lab to land
Matt Shoulders will lead an interdisciplinary team to improve RuBisCO — the photosynthesis enzyme thought to be the holy grail for improving agricultural yield.
The device, which uses electricity to boost hormone production in the stomach, could help to ease nausea and counteract appetite loss.
Gokul Sampath and Jie Yun have been named 2023-24 J-WAFS Fellows.
Developed at SMART, the device can deliver controlled amounts of agrochemicals to specific plant tissues for research and could one day be used to improve crop quality and disease management.
Fake seeds can cost farmers more than two-thirds of expected crop yields and threaten food security. Trackable silk labels could help.
J-WAFS researchers are using remote sensing observations to build high-resolution systems to monitor drought.
