Weaning Crops from Nitrogen Fertilizers: Examining Evolution’s Innovations

WID researcher Sushmita Roy and collaborators at UW­–Madison and the University of Florida will use a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to study how some plants partner with bacteria to create usable nitrogen and to transfer this ability to the bioenergy crop poplar.
