Splenda's unique Stevia genetics and innovative US processing will yield high-quality, superior tasting stevia and positively impact the global supply chain

Is the Future Tomato Red?

At one time solely being known as the jewel in the summer salad, the role of the tomato has now evolved into something much bigger - potentially game-changing, in fact. Could it be about to solve the global food crisis? At least, one greenhouse in Holland thinks so.

Using Minichromosomal Technology in Agriculture

Minichromosomal technology does not alter the plants genes in any way. Resulting in faster regulatory approval and a quicker acceptance by farmers.

PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY MARKET

Plant biotechnology plays a vital role in developing new varieties and traits, which include transgenic (genetic engineered) crops, using genetics and genomics and marker-assisted selection (MAS).

A new tomato ideal for urban gardens and even outer space

These new gene-edited tomato plants look nothing like the long vines you might find growing in a backyard garden or in agricultural fields. The most notable feature is their bunched, compact fruit.

Genetic Engineering is a Driving Force for Modern Agriculture

Genetic engineering permits scientists to select only one definite gene to implant. This avoids introducing other genes with unwanted attributes. Genetic engineering also speeds up the development of new foods with wanted traits.

Rewiring plant defence genes to reduce crop waste

This method could render crops more resilient against disease, helping mitigate crop wastage throughout the world. Since the system can be implemented by re-wiring plants natural defence mechanisms, no external genetic circuitry needs to be added.

Cost-effective cameras: More options for automation

Cost-effective cameras: More options for automation

Budget-friendly cameras can be considered an important growth driver for automation. IDS Imaging Development Systems has developed several camera families for this purpose, which are available with different resolutions, housings and lens mounts in order to optimize the development of machine vision projects. IDS' low-cost cameras of the uEye XLE, XCP and XLS series are, like all IDS cameras, characterized by "quality made in Germany", user-friendliness and long availability. The models are equipped with the basic functions for high-quality, industry-standard image evaluation and avoid unnecessary over-engineering. Furthermore, their small size makes them well-suited for embedded vision applications. One of the latest additions: a 20 MP onsemi sensor that makes it easy do discover tiny details.
