- New Cassava Potential – VIRCA
- Scientists are developing an improved cassava that will allow communities to produce more food and income from cassava farming. Leading agricultural research organizations are working together to evaluate VIRCA cassava, which protects against devastating plant viral diseases as a potential new way to improve livelihoods.
- the improvements, as well as to assess the safety of VIRCA cassava. The team is working with national government regulators, who will review safety data as part of an approval process for VIRCA cassava before it can be made available to farmers. This process includes safety information for food, feed, New Cassava Potential – VIRCA, The Need – More Food, Better Incomes Cassava is a popular, performance, root harvest and safety assessments into consideration. VIRCA varieties are expected

- Sometimes when there is talk around biotechnology, there is an image of mad scientists performing crazy experiments. I only wish the general population could see how the research is done and what the possibilities are for improving lives around the world.
- of hurdles prior to approval. The regulatory agencies are: EPA to monitor safety of plant incorporated pesticides; FDA to monitor food and feed safety; and USDA and APHIS to monitor the safe release, abundant supplies of food, fiber, medicine and energy without adversely affecting the environment, , and many people have questions about its safety. When you are asked about this subject, speak from, enough food to feed the world's growing population. Biotechnology is not the only solution

- Jude Aleu, a cassava safety manager for Uganda’s National Crops Resources Research Institute, is working with scientists from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center to test cassava plants that are genetically modified to resist disease in a project called VIRCA — Virus Resistant Cassava for Africa.
- (St. Louis Public Radio) East African Farmers Consider Genetic Modification of Food Security Crops to Avoid Shortages, Namulonge, Uganda - Before rows of tall, green bushes, Jude Aleu picks a cassava tuber off the ground and cracks it in half.
That shouldn’t be so easy. Healthy cassava tubers — a staple food crop in the region — can grow as thick as your upper arm. But the root in Aleu’s hands, .

Climate change will pose sharp risks to the world’s food supply in coming decades, potentially undermining crop production and driving up prices at a time when the demand for food is expected to soar, scientists, are not the only solution to improving our food supply, but another tool in our arsenal. Unbalanced media hype about their safety, supposed misuse and misleading ideas about how they work is drowning out

- What was striking to me about the Danforth Center was how much research is focused on world needs to produce abundant crops while considering the climate to specific areas.
- (Farm Futures) Danforth Researchers Focus On World Food Needs, Last week, I shared with you about the opportunity I had to tour the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis. The Danforth Center's research is focused on creating more abundant supplies of food, fiber, medicine and energy, about the safety, the motives of the corporations who produce them, and a lack of trust about, of the world is part of improving food production around the world.
