How should we turn data into decisions in AgriFood?
Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture DOI: 10.1002/jsfa.9545
The AgriFood supply chain is under significant pressures related to food security, climate change, and consumer demands for affordable and higher quality food. Various technologies already help us to improve productivity, reduce wastage, and increase traceability across the AgriFood supply chain.
Examples include improving efficiency in livestock production, supporting automation and use of robotics in crop production, increasing food safety and evidencing its provenance. The opportunities and ways forward were discussed at a workshop in November 2017, run by the Society of Chemical Industry and the Knowledge Transfer Network in the United Kingdom. This article presents a summary of the key messages from the presentations and focus‐group discussions during this event.
A closer look into the impact of sound on bacterial systems
Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology DOI: 10.1002/jctb.5857
This study that was the first time that the effect of more than one sound element over biological responses has been described. It provides a thorough investigation into the impact of sound frequency, amplitude, duration, intermittence and pulse, in bacterial systems and it provides a deeper understanding of the effects of sound elements on these systems.
