Will Plants Tell Us They are in Danger?
I'm Casey birch wireless Cecil farming magazine agriculture dot com. Most of us are aware that plans are able to communicate either above ground through soil. But did you also know that there are able to sense there environments chemically. Well Jeff Schultz and his team at the University ofto exploit those unique abilities of planes. When plants is under a stressful situation . Or they're being attacked they're going to release a specific order. So shall this team has been partnering with some engineers to come up with a sensor that can go through the field in cents. I'm pretty specific voters and then they would be able to spot treats different plants. So let's say you have a soybean field that's being infested by a fifth. This sensor could go through the field and find plans that were being attacked by day smelling that and as for those specific voters. Then in theory you would be able to spot treat each plant that was being attacked before you'd ever reached thresh holds. This is going to be able to save you time money and it's also going to. Reduce the environmental impacts .
