Plants need to eat to live. Their food commonly comes in the form of fertilizer. But the plants rarely finish their dinner. Excess washes away, wasting time and money as well as causing environmental concerns. Scientists are looking within the plants themselves to unlock their natural abilities to more efficiently use nutrients.
