Researchers use a pair of robotics platforms in hopes of developing drought resistant crops

 A team of researchers at the University of Missouri are using a pair of robotics platforms and a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a system for identifying crop strains resistant to heat, drought and flood. The research is part of an on-going attempt cross-breed hearty crops in order to maintain food production in the wake of severe conditions brought on by… Read More
