Determining drought tolerance in plants: Why most people do it wrong. How to do it right.

Water potential is underutilized by plant researchers in abiotic stress studies even though it is the only way to assess true drought conditions when determining drought tolerance in plants. Learn what water potential is and how it can improve the quality of your plant study.


Improve your plant study: 3 types of environmental data you may be missing

You may be missing key insights about the true environment of your plant study. Application expert Holly Lane teaches how to better understand the environment your plants are growing in and the stresses they're exposed to.
