Nibbles: CGIAR impacts, Innovative varieties, Sweet potato in PNG, Mexican food viz, Mango diversity, Lactase persistence, Tree planting, Indigenous sea gardens

  1. Average returns on agricultural R&D investment is 100%, says CGIAR.
  2. I wonder how many from this list of the most innovative plant varieties of 2020 can trace back to some CGIAR product. Or genebank.
  3. Which sweet potato varieties do consumers actually like in PNG?
  4. Cool visualizations of the relationships between Mexican crops and foods.
  5. One village, 100 mangoes. Visualize that.
  6. Don’t blame high food prices on war. Entirely, anyway.
  7. Lactase persistence is not due to the benefits of drinking milk. Entirely, anyway.
  8. A whole bunch of tools to help select trees to plant in Europe. The entirely correct URL for the climate matching tool is this one though.
  9. Why worry about any of that when you can have sea gardens, though?
