Researchers discover molecule that can serve as food additive to speed up growth of crops.

The journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publishes a recent study that allows a molecule to speed up the growth of crops.

Known as beta-cyclocitral, this molecule speeds up root growth of rice and tomato plants. Also, it helps crops to be resistant to drought and produce healthier outcomes.
