Earthworms can boost crop yields by up to 25%

Earthworm presence increases crop yields by 25%, according to a study published in Scientific Reports. Van Groenigen of Wageningen University, and his MSc student Hannah Vos, used a technique called meta-analysis to combine and analyse data from 58 studies measuring the effect of earthworms in the soil on crop yield and plant biomass. "On average, earthworm presence increases crop...

Meta-analysis study predicts effect of climate change and adaptation on crop yield

In a newly published paper in Nature , a group of NERC funded researchers have performed a meta-analysis of over 1,700 simulation to examine the impact of climate change and adaptation on crop yields of rice, wheat and maize. They conclude that without adaptation of our crops we will face losses in production of all three crops, but with crop adaptation we could potentially increase...
