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.
automation stands to add a lot to the world’s plate. At least this is the idea behind the Bellwether, monitor plant growth, photosynthesis, and water content with Walter White-like precision. By way, growth properties, we can tweak them to capture energy, conserve water, or use fertilizer more, , or producing food with less impact to the environment—all adaptations becoming more necessary by the day, the imaging every day, or even twice a day,” said Dr. James Carrington, president of the Danforth
