UF/IFAS Researchers Give Nutrient Recommendations for Citrus Greening

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

Through funding from the state legislature-funded Citrus Initiative, Tripti Vashisth has found that leaves from greening-affected trees often show deficiencies in certain nutrients such as manganese, zinc, iron and more. This suggests that, because of greening, more of these are required and are critical for diseased plants’ survival.

Scientists Discover How to Protect Yeast From Damage in Biofuel Production

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Some chemicals used to speed up the breakdown of plants for production of biofuels like ethanol are poison to the yeasts that turn the plant sugars into fuel. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and several Department of Energy laboratories have identified two changes to a single gene that can make the yeast tolerate the pretreatment chemicals.
