(Slate) Sorry, Chipotle, Some Conveyor Belts Are Good for Agriculture
The $3.5 million, 1,755 sq. ft. addition to the Danforth Center, scientists can monitor plant growth, photosynthesis, and water content with Walter White-like precision. By way of conveyor and robotic arm, test plants receive meticulous portions of everything they need—the conveyors truck them through watering and nutrient stations—in addition to near-constant checkups from three kinds of imaging systems.

(AGWeb) How Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops
Recent genome sequencing of Oropetium grass has given researchers a blueprint in distinguishing genes related to phenomenal plant resilience. 
(AGWeb) How Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops, A Lazarus heart beats inside an obscure grass. Rip it from the soil; throw it on the counter; walk away; let it dry out and turn brittle. Looks dead and should be dead. But splash on a bit of water and life comes forth, are regulated.” Oropetium endures harsh, rocky terrain in Africa and India. When lacking water, it shows, dormant yet viable for years. The embryo stays alive and can germinate. Essentially, add water
