Diesel Remains the Technology of Choice for Tractors and Agricultural Machines

 

TULARE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diesel engines play a key role in the agricultural sector, powering over 75 percent of all large agricultural machines and equipment, transporting 90 percent of agricultural products and pumping one-fifth of irrigation water in the United States.

As the World Ag Expo convenes, the latest in farm tractors and machines and equipment will take center stage. Farm tractors, combines, irrigation pumps and other equipment are the workhorses in an industry vital to our global economy and quality of life.

Whether 1,000 commercial acres of grain or a 20-acre hobby farm, farmers need reliable, durable and efficient machines and equipment with adequate power, performance and reliability. This combination of features, along with continuous improvement, is why diesel remains the technology of choice for large and small farms alike.

According to recent forecasts, long- and short-term views of the global agricultural equipment market both point to a growth trajectory at a compound annual growth rate of 2.8 percent. This is due to increasing food demand and technology adoption. These growth projections extend to tractors, planting, irrigation and crop processing equipment, hay and forage equipment, and harvesters.

For tomorrow's farms, increased efficiency and productivity will be in high demand. According to the World Economic Forum, by 2050 a global population of 9.8 billion will demand 70 percent more food than is consumed today. Innovations in farming and food production, as well as increased systems efficiency, are part of the solution. Like in other sectors, an emphasis on data, connectivity and automation enables smart farming systems and biotechnologies.

Advancements in diesel powertrains enable farm equipment to be more productive and achieve greater yields, using less fuel, with near-zero emissions that provide clean air and sustainability benefits to agricultural communities. There is no better place to recognize these advancements than here in California, the breadbasket that feeds the world.

Leaders in agricultural engine and equipment technology include AGCOCNHCaterpillarCumminsDeere and Yanmar.

Abeona Therapeutics Receives Orphan Drug Designation in the European Union for ABO-202 Gene Therapy Program in Batten Disease20.4.2018 14:15Pressemelding

NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abeona Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ:ABEO), a leading clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel cell and gene therapies for life-threatening rare genetic diseases, announced today that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products has granted Orphan Drug Designation (EMA/OD/013/18) for Abeona's gene therapy program ABO-202 for the treatment of subjects with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, also known as Batten Disease, a fatal lysosomal storage disease that primarily affects the nervous system in children. ABO-202 is an adeno-associated virus developed to introduce a functional copy of the CLN1 gene into cells in order to restore the enzyme activity that is needed to break down certain lipopigment proteins that are deficient in patients with CLN1 disease. "This designation is an important step in our CLN1 program as it encourages us to proceed towards clinical development," st

Taconic Biosciences Licenses Easi-CRISPR Technology from the University of Nebraska20.4.2018 14:00Pressemelding

RENSSELAER, N.Y., April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered mouse model and service solutions, has been granted a license to the Easi-CRISPR technology from the University of Nebraska. Easi-CRISPR was developed in the laboratories of Drs. Masato Ohtsuka (Tokai University in Japan), and Channabasavaiah Gurumurthy (University of Nebraska). The terms of the agreement include a world-wide, non-exclusive license to the technology, allowing Taconic rights to generate and sell rodent models generated via Easi-CRISPR. When compared to traditional CRISPR, Easi-CRISPR represents a significant advantage, allowing researchers to perform whole genetic insertions versus being limited to point mutations and constitutive knockouts. "Easi-CRISPR is the next progression of the revolutionary CRISPR/Cas technology. Combining the speed of CRISPR with larger genetic insertions allows complex projects typically requiring homologous recombinati
