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.

R2D2, a joint project to analyze and development high-TRL processes and technologies for manufacture of flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has been successfully completed.
In contrast to point light sources like LEDs made of inorganic semiconductor crystals, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are light-emitting surfaces. Their...

Strands of cow cartilage substitute for ink in a 3D bioprinting process that may one day create cartilage patches for worn out joints, according to a team of engineers. "Our goal is to create tissue that can be used to replace large amounts of worn out tissue or design patches," said Ibrahim T. Ozbolat, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics. "Those who have osteoarthritis in their joints suffer a lot. We need a new alternative treatment for this."
Cartilage is a good tissue to target for scale-up bioprinting because it is made up of only one cell type and has no blood vessels within the tissue. It is...
Physicists in Innsbruck have realized the first quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories, building a bridge between high-energy theory and atomic physics. In the journal Nature, Rainer Blatt‘s and Peter Zoller’s research teams describe how they simulated the creation of elementary particle pairs out of the vacuum by using a quantum computer.
Elementary particles are the fundamental buildings blocks of matter, and their properties are described by the Standard Model of particle physics. The...
