Texas A&M Researchers Identify Light Quality Effects on Genes Regulating Branching
Plants are much more responsive to wavelengths of sunlight than the naked eye. According to Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientists, plants use this light to alter their overall architecture. A study discussing these findings will be featured in the October issue of the journal Plant Physiology. In the magazine, researcher also outline how this information could help in designing future crops with higher resilience to growing environments, such as drought, high temperatures and grazing.
