A team of US based researchers are seeking a way to improve yields by enhancing the way corn plants utilize nitrogen.
(Feed Navigator) US Researchers Seek to Boost Yield by Improving Corn's Nitrogen Use, By Aerin Curtis January 18, 2016 A team of US based researchers are seeking a way to improve yields by enhancing the way corn plants utilize nitrogen. The team is focusing on better understanding how nitrogen is used and regulated by corn, and is looking to improve that connection in an effort to boost corn yield while limiting the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers.

What are Second Generation Biofuels?, Second generation fuels are made from inedible parts of the plant and thus do not compete with the food supply. Currently, most of the ethanol in the U.S. comes from corn seed and is produced in a process that is very similar to brewing beer from barley or rice. However, because people and animals consume corn there is the potential for competition, , second-generation biofuels represent a sustainable energy resource that complements our existing corn
