MOU with JIRCAS

In July 2019, Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS)signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) jointly develop Biological Nitrification Inhibition (BNI) technology and design agricultural production systems to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and loss of nitrogen from farmlands. BNI-technology facilitates development of low-nitrifying soil-ecosystems, a critical requirement to sustain productivity in modern production systems, without damaging the environment.
