Identification of boron tolerance genes in wheat DNA could result in increased wheat yields

University of Adelaide scientists have identified the genes in wheat that control tolerance to a significant yield-limiting soil condition found around the globe - boron toxicity. Published in the journal Nature today, the identification of boron tolerance genes in wheat DNA is expected to help plant breeders more rapidly advance new varieties for increased wheat yields to help...

Newly identified mutant plant can accumulate excessive amounts of starch

Scientists have identified a new mutant plant that accumulates excessive amounts of starch, which could help to boost crop yields and increase the productivity of plants grown for biofuels. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology looked for excessive starch accumulators in the model plant  Arabidopsis thaliana  that had been mutated using ...
