Nutrients impact root growth & development: Amazing complexity! Plant nutrients are taken up by roots as ions – mediated by specific transport proteins. The root tips sense their external and internal nutrient concentration in order to adjust root growth and development.

Producing NH3 via SWAP

University of Tokyo

Summary: Ammonia — a colorless gas essential for things like fertilizer — can be made by a new process which is far cleaner, easier and cheaper than the current leading method. Researchers use readily available lab equipment, recyclable chemicals and a minimum of energy to produce ammonia. Their Samarium-Water Ammonia Production (SWAP) process promises to scale down ammonia production and improve access to ammonia fertilizer to farmers everywhere
