Baron, Ph.D., senior scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey and senior research ecologist with the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University, presented "Too much of a good thing: Toward an International Nitrogen Management System" as part of the Research Seminar Series at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 26.
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.
