Plant root hair discovery could restyle crop production

Plant root hair discovery could restyle crop production

Description
Scientists have discovered a way plants improve foraging for nutrients in the soil – a discovery that will help create new varieties of crops that can meet the challenges of the changing climate.Plants need to take up sufficient levels of the essential nutrient phosphate (P) from the soil to grow. To increase their surface area to take up more P from the soil, plants elongate root hairs. New research from the University of Nottingham and a multinational team of collaborators reveals how this process works, opening the way to create improved varieties of crops.
