Washington State University Biologist Develops Soybean Nitrogen Breakthrough

Washington State University biologist Mechthild Tegeder has developed a way to exponentially increase the quality and yield of soybeans using nitrogen. This may be a way to increase food in the world as the world population continues to grow.

Nitrogen is a macronutrient essential for plant growth and with Tegeder’s manipulation of nitrogen, she and her graduate assistant, Amanda Carter, were able to find the rate of nitrogen in order to boost the plant growth into overdrive.
