Supporting crop plant resilience during climate change

May 22, 2023 | Crop Science |

Hailing from The University of Western Australia and The Chinese University of Hong Kong, this study delves into the critical intersection of climate change, agriculture, and global food security. Faced with the challenges imposed by a shifting climate and a burgeoning population, the study advocates for innovative strategies to enhance crop productivity. By harnessing the power of genomics-assisted breeding, high-throughput DNA sequencing, and advanced genome engineering, the research explores the potential of developing climate-smart crop varieties. The utilization of big data and cutting-edge agricultural practices further emerges as key components in fortifying crops against climate fluctuations. The study's insights offer a glimpse into the future of agriculture, where resilient and high-yielding crop varieties contribute to securing global food resources in the face of climatic uncertainties.
