Climate change is having a big impact on our environment. But it also has the potential to completely transform agriculture. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at future predictions to determine exactly what the agriculture business might face in the coming years.
Did you know that cows speak? Scientists have been eavesdropping on "conversations" between calves and their mothers, using detailed acoustic analysis to figure out exactly how cows manage to communicate.
Archaeologists have discovered that humans and plants may have developed unprecedented adaptations to cope with altitude.
It turns out that our world could be altered by the so-called "Green Revolution." Scientists have found that the intense farming practices used are powerful enough to alter Earth's atmosphere at an ever-increasing rate.
One scientist has developed a method to enhance crop yield through the contact of roots, aerial parts or even the substratum of a plant fungus.
There's a lot of talk about what human impacts are doing to warm the climate, but very little about what might cool the climate. Now, scientists have found that, surprisingly, the conversion of forests into cropland worldwide can cause a net cooling effect on global temperatures.
Researchers are learning a bit more about the origins of a summer favorite: peaches. Scientists have taken a closer look at ancient peach stones and have found that the domestic versions of this fruit can trace their origins back at least 7,500 years.
Scientists have found that if Americans altered their menus to conform to federal dietary recommendations, emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases tied to agricultural production could increase significantly.
Is that organic apple you're buying actually organic? Scientists have taken a look at both conventional and organic tomatoes in order to devise a new way to make sure that farms are labeling their produce appropriately.
It turns out that our planet may not be as green as it could be. Scientists have found that Earth can produce much more land-plant biomass than previously thought.
Could there be a way to increase the productivity of plants even out of season? Scientists may have just found the "switch" in plants to manage it.
