UC Davis projects aim to diagnose, prevent damage caused by Huanglongbing.
A new discovery by UC Davis researchers is helping combat costly grape powdery mildew damage.
Study: evolutionary biology must be used to overcome global agriculture challenges.
Research shows environmental conditions influence behavior of walnut twig beetle.
Scientists from the University of California, Davis, have discovered the function of a gene that allows wheat to discern the length of each day and night. When they knocked out the gene, wheat flowering was delayed for more than 100 days.
Resistance gene to phytophthora root rot may offer hope and maintain crop yields.
The most commercially important tree in the U.S. and the source of most U.S. paper products.
Plants have built-in systems for fighting off disease-causing microbes.
Asian citrus psyllid being studied at UC Davis Research Containment Facility.
Proposed law could ban production of genetically modified organisms on the big island of Hawaii
Assumptions about genetics of two malaria mosquito subgroups are false.
The monetary benefits of screening wine-producing grapevines and rootstocks for viruses far outweigh the costs.
Plant disease expert Helene Dillard, who is associate dean and head of Cooperative Extension at Cornell University, has been named the new dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at UC Davis, and will begin at UC Davis in late January 2014.
An international effort is in progress to sequence a wheat ancestor’s genome, to better understand the genetics of bread wheat.
Treatment for citrus greening disease may result from DNA sequencing technology.
Methyl bromide, a soil fumigant, is about to be phased out. UC researchers are helping growers find methyl bromide alternatives for western crops.
A new gene that will equip wheat plants to resist the deadly stem rust disease has been discovered by an international team including Jan Dvorak, Karin Deal, and Mingcheng Luo.
A team of researchers from UC Davis and Kansas State University has identified a gene that enables resistance to stem rust, a wheat disease that threatens global food security.
In an era of climate instability, the southwestern U.S. faces many environmental and agricultural challenges, which are addressed in a new book.
Two graduate students from the UC Davis Department of Food Science and Technology received 2012 Graduate Fellowship Awards from the Robert Mondavi Industry Partnership Program to support their important work with citrus disease and food safety.
