Noble scientists are using the gene editing technique CRISPR to improve legume cover crops.
Bill Buckner, president and CEO, describes how the Noble Research Institute is providing solutions to farmers and ranchers as they, and others in agriculture, realize the opportunities offered by cover crops.
