What is a plot combine?

A plot combine is an agricultural machine used mainly in breeding. A plot combine harvester is designed for harvesting small seed breeding and experimental fields. Its small size is ideal for research plots and helps to improve research and efficiency. Through the results and data it gathers, the plot combine is an essential tool in determining what farmers will be growing or applying to their crops in harvests to come.

Agricultural field research, why its important, world population and efficiency of seeding and harvesting

Agricultural field research is important because it helps to discover procedures that aid the efficiency of crop plants and increase crop yields, prevent loss from insects and disease, improve farmland productivity, develop efficient equipment, and increase overall food quality. This also includes looking for ways to increase farmers' profits while protecting the environment. Through the advancement of agricultural research, the consumer benefits with higher quality of food for longer periods and paying less for their food, helping to provide a higher standard of living.

Agricultural development is one of the most powerful tools to end extreme poverty, boost shared prosperity, and feed a projected 9.7 billion people by 2050...

...But agriculture-driven growth, poverty reduction, and food security are at risk: Climate change could cut crop yields, especially in the world’s most food-insecure regions. Agriculture, forestry, and land use change are responsible for about 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. Mitigation in the agriculture sector is part of the solution to climate change.

As a key agricultural input, seeds play a fundamental role in meeting the triple challenge of improving food security and nutrition, supporting the livelihoods of farmers and rural communities, and contributing to sustainable resource use and climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Plant breeding has also enabled certain crops to adapt to broader climatic and geographic zones, expanding their cultivation and increasing their importance in food systems. The advent of modern plant breeding has dramatically accelerated the breeding process and enabled strong yield growth.

In recent decades, plant breeding has enabled agricultural crops to rapidly adapt to climate change, the evolution of pests and diseases and market preferences. This potential for adaptation and genetic improvement, driven by plant breeding, can help meet the triple challenge.
Observed climate change is already affecting food security through increasing temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, and greater frequency of some extreme events. Studies that separate out climate change from other factors affecting crop yields have shown that yields of some crops (e.g., maize and wheat) in many lower-latitude regions have been affected negatively by observed climate changes, while in many higher-latitude regions, yields of some crops (e.g., maize, wheat, and sugar beets) have been affected positively over recent decades.

Warming compounded by drying has caused large negative effects on yields in parts of the Mediterranean. Based on indigenous and local knowledge climate change is affecting food security in drylands, particularly those in Africa, and high mountain regions of Asia and South America.

Food security will be increasingly affected by projected future climate change. Across Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSPs) 1, 2, and 3, global crop and economic models projected a 1–29% cereal price increase in 2050 due to climate change, which would impact consumers globally through higher food prices; regional effects will vary. Low-income consumers are particularly at risk, with models projecting increases of 1–183 million additional people at risk of hunger across the SSPs compared to a no climate change scenario. While increased CO2 is projected to be beneficial for crop productivity at lower temperature increases, it is projected to lower nutritional quality (e.g., wheat grown at 546–586 ppm CO2 has 5.9–12.7% less protein, 3.7–6.5% less zinc, and 5.2–7.5% less iron). Distributions of pests and diseases will change, affecting production negatively in many regions. Given increasing extreme events and interconnectedness, risks of food system disruptions are growing.
