Date:9/26/2013

Des Moines, Iowa (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

The DuPont Pioneer Drought Research Council (DRC) published its first article this month titled ‘The U.S. Drought of 2012 in Perspective: A Call to Action’. The paper outlines recommendations for improving food security, including an emphasis on research collaborations; objective, science-based regulations; and, appropriate funding for public agricultural research.

“The DuPont Pioneer Drought Research Council brings together experts in the field of drought research from across the public and private sector to nurture collaboration, share ideas and, ultimately, identify solutions for sustainable agricultural production,” said Jonathan Lightner, vice president, agricultural biotechnology, DuPont Pioneer. To summarize ‘The U.S. Drought of 2012 in Perspective: A Call to Action’ article:

  •     The United States is the world’s largest exporter of major grain and oilseed crops, with corn being especially important;
  •     A large disruption to U.S. production of these crops can have a substantial impact on international grain markets;
  •     The severity of the 2012 U.S. drought and its effect on corn prices is reviewed;
  •     The challenges of developing improved genetics for productivity under drought conditions is discussed; and,
  •     Priorities for international agricultural research to mitigate effects of climatic shocks to global food supply are explored, including: appropriate funding for public agricultural research; emphasis on collaborations; and, science-based, objective regulations.

The complete findings and recommendations are published in the September issue of the journal
