Which Crops Can Survive Drought? Nanosensors May Offer Clues

For the current study, the researchers injected the solution into maize leaves, which they chose, in part, because the crop is critical to worldwide food supply. The nanosensors coated the outside of the leaf’s cells, swelling or shrinking based on how much water was available. The dye molecules in AquaDust fluoresce at different wavelengths, depending […]
