NASA-inspired “speed breeding” boosts wheat production threefold

The speed breeding technique was developed by scientists at the University of Sydney, the University of ...

Our planet is expected to host an extra two billion people by 2050, but the amount of arable land we’ve got to work with won’t be changing all that much. How exactly we’re going to feed all these hungry mouths is a problem scientists are looking at from every angle, including creating heat-resistant cows, vertical farms and lab-grown hamburgers. Researchers are now reporting an advance in a NASA-inspired field known as speed breeding which relies on intense lighting regimes to raise crops several times faster, and boost their health at the same time.
