InnerPlant’s Genetically-Engineered Plants Revolutionize Monitoring
- InnerPlant is creating genetically-engineered plants that emit a fluorescent light as a signal.
- The plants emit this signal when they’re experiencing fungal pressure, attacked by pests, lack nutrients, or moisture.
- This innovative technology offers a real-time monitoring solution for farmers and agronomists.
- The signals are detectable by drones or other devices, allowing for efficient and widespread monitoring.
- The system could potentially reduce the need for pesticides, optimize water and fertilizer usage, and decrease crop losses.
InnerPlant’s genetically-engineered plants represent a breakthrough in monitoring agricultural conditions. By emitting a fluorescent signal, these plants can alert farmers and agronomists to various stressors such as fungal pressure, pest attacks, nutrient deficiencies, or lack of moisture. This real-time monitoring solution has the potential to revolutionize farming practices by enabling swift responses to crop health issues. The signals emitted by these plants can be detected by drones or other devices, making it possible to monitor large areas efficiently. By utilizing this innovative technology, farmers and agronomists can optimize resource usage, reduce pesticide dependency, and ultimately minimize crop losses.
