Cornell and University of Illinois researchers have engineered plants capable of making proteins not native to the plant itself, which opens the door for cheaply making proteins for industrial and medical uses.
In a new collaboration, students from Dairy Herd Management teamed up with students in Topics in Cloud Computing to learn how to work together to develop the kinds of digital tools that could reshape farming.
Projects ranging from a soil-swimming robot that can sense conditions in the root zone in real time to computational models that can predict produce spoilage received seed funds from the Cornell Initiative for Digital Agriculture’s new Research Innovation Fund.
Climatic changes are disrupting the entire farm cycle, from forcing delays in planting to reducing yields when the crops do grow. Cornell’s Climate Smart Farming program (CSF) supports farmers in New York state and the Northeast to put in place new practices that increase agricultural productivity and farming incomes sustainably and increase farmers' resiliency.
How do you feed 10 billion people by 2050 without destroying the world? At Cornell’s Digital Agriculture Hackathon, over 200 Cornell students sought to answer that question, developing novel and innovative solutions in 36 hours.
