Chinese Scientists Create Genetically Modified Low-Fat Pigs...
CRISPR Bacon: Chinese Scientists Create Genetically Modified Low-Fat Pigs
October 23, 2017 - Here's something that may sound like a contradiction in terms: low-fat pigs. But that's exactly what Chinese scientists have created using new genetic engineering techniques.
From AG Daily news:
Monsanto BioAg products will now be offered under the newly formed Acceleron BioAg brand, as part of a larger seed treatment portfolio rebranding effort with Acceleron Seed Applied Solutions products. With this transition, the Acceleron BioAg and Acceleron Seed Applied Solutions brands will now make up an overarching Acceleron portfolio, offering a comprehensive package of synthetic chemistry and biological seed treatment products.

Trial Reforms of “Insurance Plus Futures”: Evaluation Results and Policy Options（No.77, 2017）
By Zhu Junsheng, Research Institute of Finance, DRC & Ye Minghua, East China Normal University
Research report No.77, 2017 (Total 5152) 2017-7-18
Abstract: The trial reforms of “insurance Plus futures” is an active practice of developing market-based management for reducing the risk of food price. Compared with grain spread subsidy and the policy of purchasing grain at minimum prices in order to prevent grain prices from further dropping, the premium subsidy of “insurance Plus futures” has certain advantage than temporary storage cost. It can achieve the gradient effect of farmers’ price risk transfer, and give full scope to the technical advantages of actuarial and risk management of insurance and futures companies.
Bayer Bought Monsanto and Is Now Stuck With Its Biggest Headache
A blockbuster herbicide is still causing trouble across farm country.
Tom Philpott Jun. 29, 2018 6:00 AM
It’s happening again. In states from Mississippi to Indiana, some US soybean farmers are seeing a troubling sight: Previously healthy plants begin to look wan, their leaves puckering into a cup-like shape. Similar symptoms are hitting trees, ornamental and garden plants, flowers, berries, and vegetables.
If the story sounds familiar, that’s because cupped leaves and the angry farmers who tend them are emerging as a recurring summer saga in the Heartland as swaths of land are exposed to errant mists of the potent herbicide dicamba. The pesticide is marketed by Monsanto, the erstwhile US seed/pesticide giant which will soon be subsumed into German chemical behemoth Bayer. And as Bayer integrates Monsanto, it’s also inheriting the smaller company’s dicamba mess.
For three years now, Monsanto has been hotly marketing a product called Roundup Ready 2 Xtend—soybean seeds genetically tweaked to produce crops that can withstand both dicamba and another herbicide, glyphosate (Roundup). The company’s “Roundup Ready” glyphosate-tolerant crops, released in the mid-1990s, became so ubiquitous in US farm country, and the chemical became so widely used, that weeds evolved to withstand it. Now, the company is pitching its dicamba-ready seeds as the answer to the declining effectiveness of its glyphosate-tolerant products.
Dicamba is prone to volatizing—that is, turning into a gas and moving in the air to nearby fields, where it can cause unintended damage.
Biggest woo scam in America.
