If plants could talk

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) scientists Dr. Bernie Zebarth and Dr. Helen Tai at the Potato Research Centre in Fredericton, New Brunswick (NB), will gather data from plants almost the same way a mechanic assesses your car’s engine. “We’d like to take small discs of leaf tissue, conduct a simple test and see how this plant is doing in terms of nutrients,” Dr. Zebarth said. “We may also be able to see if there are any other stresses the plant is facing, such as diseases, all in a single assay.”
