The technology increases the metabolism in plants to help them grow better. &ldquo;From the 1920s to 1970s, farmers saw a nice increase in crop yields per acre with mechanization and hybrid seed,&rdquo; says J.J. Grow, CEO of Verdesian. &ldquo;But yields have slowed down drastically since then.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/fertilizer/special-report-inside-los-alamos-national-laboratory" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/fertilizer/special-report-inside-los-alamos-national-laboratory#comments Fertilizer Crop chemicals Growth Promotants Mon, 06 Oct 2014 05:42:00 +0000 72661 at http://farmindustrynews.com <p>Richard Sayre, scientist with the Los Alamos National Laboratory, walks us through some research and developments at the Bioscience Center.
