Communicating with Plants

Deciphering and Exploiting Chemical Signals through Electronics

Thanks for joining us for Stewards!

The grand challenges facing the world don’t mimic the neat organizational structure of research and science.

An interdisciplinary research model is the cornerstone of the NC Plant Sciences Initiative. Having plant scientists collaborate with experts in engineering, economics, biology and even marketing ensure the research covers all the potential aspects. And results in a strong, cohesive purpose and greater market potentials.

During our newest rendition of our flagship conference, co-hosted by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Engineering and the NC Agricultural Foundation, Inc., Stewards of the Future, we seek to stimulate innovative discussions among plant scientists and engineers in uncovering how plants talk.

Plants and Sensors | December 2 and 3, 2018 | The StateView Hotel, Raleigh, N.C.
