TED talk from our collaborator Jill Farrant: How we can make crops survive without water - TEDGlobal Geneva

TED talk from our collaborator Jill Farrant: How we can make crops survive without water - TEDGlobal Geneva | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it
As the world's population grows and the effects of climate change come into sharper relief, we'll have to feed more people using less arable land. Molecular biologist Jill Farrant studies a rare phenomenon that may help: "resurrection plants" -- super-resilient plants that seemingly come back from the dead. Could they hold promise for growing food in our coming hotter, drier world?
