    Japan’s fear of China and North Korea is helping Texas’s “Cowtown”

    Japan plans to buy at least 20 more F-35A stealth fighters over the next six years, according to a report by Reuters yesterday. What’s most notable about the news is not the number of jets, but where they will be made and assembled. In December 2011, Tokyo announced it would replace its aging military jets…

    An all-female fish species is challenging how scientists think about asexual reproduction

    For all intents and purposes, the Amazon molly should be on a crash course to extinction. Shockingly, it’s not only survived, but thrived. Over time, the all-female species of the Amazon molly, a freshwater fish native to the border region of Texas and Mexico, has figured out how to clone itself without any male DNA.…

    Arun Jaitley’s half-baked measures won’t fool India’s farmers

    For those with short memories, let’s remind ourselves that Arun Jaitley has been promising “top priority to farmers” for a while now. In February 2016, this government promised to double farmers’ incomes in five years. Two years later, that goal post has been shifted, with all official documents now declaring that farmers’ incomes will be…

Researchers at the US Department of Agriculture were able to identify roosters with strong immune…

    Worsening southern Plains drought slows U.S. cattle herd growth

    Insufficient moisture in parts of Texas and Oklahoma, along with areas of persistent dryness in the northern Plains, hurt winter wheat grazing pastures for cattle - forcing more of them into commercial feedyards for fattening earlier than planned. The bulge in cattle numbers heading to market now could keep a lid on beef and slaughter-ready cattle prices in the months ahead. Wednesday's U.S. Department of Agriculture twice-yearly cattle inventory report showed the U.S. cattle herd as of Jan. 1 up 0.7 percent from a year earlier at 94.399 million head.

Persistent agricultural distress has been intensified by demonetisation; farmers have been openly protesting in various parts of the…

    CHICAGO/CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Top U.S. grains merchant Archer Daniels Midland Co (ADM.N) has proposed a takeover of Bunge Ltd (BG.N), The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, a move that could set up a battle for Bunge with Swiss-based rival Glencore Plc (GLEN.L). Thin margins have squeezed core commodity trading operations, including those of ADM, Bunge, Cargill Inc and Louis Dreyfus Co.
