North Carolina State University (NCSU) will lead a new $30 million research program intended to make crops more resilient against environmental stresses while reducing the need for chemical treatments and irrigation.
NCSU will receive about $8 million of the program’s funding over six years to study how microbes in soil, roots and leaves interact with plants and affect plant health and productivity.
