Neutrons Investigate Tomatoes for Insights Into Interplant Chatter

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Researchers from Xavier University used neutrons at ORNL’s High Flux Isotope Reactor to observe how plants communicate via underground networks of fungal hyphae. Insights gained could lead to improved agricultural applications that enable farmers to tactically introduce pesticides into an environment so that unwanted weeds are destroyed while valuable crops remain unharmed.

Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, May 2019

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

ORNL story tips: Using ORNL’s Summit supercomputer, scientists created some of the largest virtual universes; plant-based, super-sticky material proves stickier than mussels; method to 3D print big components with metal could promise low-cost, high-quality builds with less waste; simulated small modular reactors on Summit ran more efficiently than expected.
