Teams of Iowa State researchers are creating a whole new paradigm in plant breeding, one that maximizes agricultural productivity at the critical intersection of sustainable agriculture, bioenergy and food security.
Student teams from Iowa State and Makerere University lead on-the-ground projects that create practical solutions for communities in Uganda. Up next: a pedal-powered grain machine that cleans maize at Kamuli District schools.
A HUNGER-FREE WORLD
How can we fight world hunger, even amid a pandemic that only makes matters worse? An Iowa State researcher developed an online network that connects excess food at restaurants and grocery stores with families in need.
OUR BEST ‘NEW NORMAL’
As the fight against COVID-19 began, people in veterinary diagnostics, design, chemistry, psychology, mechanical engineering and other fields across Iowa State’s campus stepped up to solve epic problems.
FOOD FOR ALL
By 2050, our planet will be home to 2 billion more people than today. Can our food supply keep up? Iowa State scientists are designing roving robots that will enable the world to grow more food on less land, with few resources, in an ever-changing environment.
