Enhancement of Field Performance in Woody Perennials via Drought Resistant Genes and Nitrogen Use Efficiency
Invention Summary: Nitrogen is one of the leading factors of limited vegetation production. Improving nitrogen metabolism via engineered nitrogen efficiency (NUE) can contribute to the superior growth and result in increased energy biomass production in woody perennials. Researchers at Rutgers University have developed methods for producing woody ...
