Description

Abstract Text:
Exciting potential exists for dramatic improvements in many underutilized perennial crops. While a great diversity of plant genetic resources exits, very little breeding work has been done with most nut tree species. Genetically improved nut crops represent a highly sustainable and low input food supply whose widespread use could alleviate hunger and improve nutrition throughout the world. The widespread use of nut crops on marginal and sloping land would reduce soil erosion and flooding, reduce pesticide use, improve soil productivity, reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, provide food, fiber, and bioenergy and stabilize ground water resources.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
