Expert network agri benchmark Cash Crop gains Bayer CropScience as new partner
Bayer CropScience is the newest supporting partner of the agri benchmark Cash Crop Network. This global, non-profit network of agricultural economists, advisors, producers and specialists in the Cash Crop value chain uses internationally standardized methods to analyze farms, production systems and their profitability.
Its aim is to generate and disseminate reliable and usable information and analysis on major trends in global crop production. It is coordinated by the German Thünen Institute and the German Agricultural Society (DLG).
In March, Bayer CropScience signed a cooperation agreement with DLG, the managing partner in agri benchmark. The Thünen Institute of Farm Economics is responsible for the research and the cooperation with scientific partners. The agreement is valid for an initial period of three years, a long-term cooperation is envisaged.
Ludwig Schanze from Bayer CropScience responsible for the cooperation with agri benchmark points out: “We are aiming for an improved understanding of trends in global crop production and the respective needs of the farming sector. We value the network´s independent work and direct interaction with national experts and growers.”
Yelto Zimmer, coordinator of the agri benchmark Cash Crop Network is content about the expansion and emphasizes: “We appreciate Bayer CropScience’s support and the trust in our work. This will enable the network to grow and to explore new areas relevant to all stakeholders in global crop production.”
In his opinion Bayer CropScience is an interesting partner for agri benchmark because of its expertise in crop production and crop protection in particular. This way, agri benchmark Cash Crop has access to first-hand information on recent trends and challenges in crop protection affecting growers and crop production.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
