Fast Farming: developing hardy plants for a hungry world

Fast Farming: developing hardy plants for a hungry world

To help farmers address the challenges of climate change, Penn State researchers and students have planted more than 10,000 plants in a process dubbed "fast-farming." Their goal is to determine which ones are tolerant to extreme heat and drought in order to make recommendations to farmers in affected areas around the globe. This research has been featured by the Big Ten in a new, one-minute video as part of its LiveB1G initiative.
