The new Engineering Research Center will be hosted by São Paulo State University’s School of Agrarian and Veterinary Sciences in Jaboticabal. Its scientists will also research biotechnology and plant resistance.
The imaging analysis system available at the University of São Paulo enhances the effectiveness of biological control of South American fruit flies based on the sterilization of males. The species mainly damages apple and peach orchards in the South Region of Brazil.
Researchers are looking for partners to refine process that converts sugarcane bagasse and wheat straw into high-value compounds.
Brazilian researchers calculated the amount of nutrients in sugarcane leaves, which are normally left on the ground after harvest, and the equivalent in fertilizer required to maintain crop yield if the straw is removed.
Brazilian tech startup develops app that will feature advanced tools for hive quality monitoring and georeferencing.
Over half of the rays and skates caught in Brazil belong to protected species, a DNA barcoding study shows.
Study was presented to Workshop on Biopharma and Metabolomics covering research jointly funded by FAPESP and Agilent Technologies.
A nonlethal dose of insecticide clothianidin can reduce honeybees’ life span by half; once combined with the fungicide pyraclostrobin, it alters the behavior of worker bees to the point of endangering the whole colony.
The results of a project involving Brazilian and British researchers show that integrated crop-livestock-pasture systems improve soil quality, increase cattle yields and benefit the environment.
The Research Center for Gas Innovation is developing technology to separate CO2 and methane in oil and gas exploration and store it in offshore salt caverns.
Workshop highlights technological requirements, solutions and need for partnerships between oil companies, universities and startups.
