Possible Production of Drought-Resistant Crops Enabled

■ Life Sciences / Possible Production of Drought-Resistant Crops Enabled The gene that acts negatively in plant tolerance responses to drought stress has been identified by the research team led by Professor Woo Taek Kim. Approximately 30% of the world’s area under cultivation is facing drought stress, and over 50% of the maximum crop production capacity is estimated to disappear due to environment stress including drought stress. This is increasing the need for developing new stress-resistant varieties to actively respond to such drought stress. Crop development through the discovery of genes that respond to environmental stress is drawing attention as a core field to resolve … Continue reading Possible Production of Drought-Resistant Crops EnabledRead More →
