Researcher improves crop performance with new biotechnology

Researchers have discovered a way to enhance a plant’s tolerance to stress, which in turn improves how it uses water and nutrients from the soil. These improvements increase plant biomass and yield. This discovery could be instrumental in agriculture and food security by improving crop sustainability and performance. With the world’s population exploding to well … More Researcher improves crop performance with new biotechnology
