Plant #biodiversity is in its all time low: only 9 plant species make up 66% of the world's crops. #plants #HelsinkiSustainability #mmtdk #bytdk #eltdk https://t.co/2ck0SGFyID
The ancient hunter-gatherers of northern Europe adapted to their changing surroundings and took advantage of the plants available to them in many different ways. Due to its adaptation to colder climates, barley was the most important cereal crop throughout prehistory.
Is the drug I bought on my travels the real thing or a fake? How big an apple crop are we getting this year? Researchers are developing an application that brings extremely accurate hyperspectral imaging within anyone’s reach. @SpexelAi #HelsinkiImpact #Slush19
Viikki research farm had problems with geese a few years ago. To protect the crops, goose patrol was founded.
The patrol's dogs chase the bi…
A new screening method can protect crops from viruses. So far, the technique has been successfully used to identify viruses in dozens of plant species, including potato, tomato and wine, as well as many wild plants.
Thanks to novel techniques, identifying plant viruses is no longer based on guessing the identity of the virus. Especially, a new RNA based method could save crops and prevent plant enemies from moving from farm to farm.
Bachelors, masters and licentiates, huge and warm congratulations to all of you! 💐 🥂

Trees, potatoes, carrots... This study ends the near 150-year-old debate on the location and essence of the stem cells responsible for radial growth. Botany textbooks around the world will need to update their descriptions of how the two types of vascular tissues in plants form, differentiate and grow. Researchers identified key regulatory networks controlling how plants grow ‘outwards’. This could help us to grow trees to be more efficient carbon sinks and increase vegetable crop yields.
Soil erosion is a major problem for agriculture. Many years of intensive cultivation can deplete the soil of nutrients. Researchers worked together with farmers to improve crop yield. They employ bacteria to enrich the soil. The bacteria can form a symbiosis with protein-rich plants such as soybean, pea, faba bean, peanut, clover and lupine.

When soil crumbles like a moist chocolate cake, it teems with life. Healthy, living soil is important not only for crops: soil stores double the amount of carbon compared to plants and the atmosphere, which makes its condition a significant climate issue. Farmer Tuomas Mattila is not measuring success merely in the amount of harvested grain.
Protection for crops without the use of potentially harmful pesticides? Dr Minna Poranen's research group is developing new RNA-based vaccines to protect plants. Toghether with researchers from the French National Centre for Scientific Research CNRS, they have already demonstrated the efficacy of these vaccines against plant virus infections.
