In a new study, scientists focused on a protein called FTO - the first known protein that
As a result, in laboratory conditions, they gave threetimes more rice. In real field trials, the plants grew 50% more in weight and produced 50% more rice. They showed excellent growth and more developed root systems, and were also better able to withstand drought stress. The analysis also showed that the plants had an increased rate of photosynthesis.
Scientists have repeated experiments with potato plants that belong to a completely different family. The results were the same.
It is important to note that this technique gave the samethe results for both rice and potatoes, which are not particularly closely related. This suggests that it can work on a wide variety of plants, increasing their resistance to climate change.
