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.
Furthermore, this molecule pushes down the salty topsoil to help roots grow faster and healthier.
