MIT, SMART and TLL researchers have developed a way to study and track the internal communication of living plants using carbon nanotube sensors that can be embedded in plant leaves. The sensors can report on plants’ signalling waves to reveal how they respond to stresses such as injury, infection, heat and light damage, providing valuable real-time insights for engineering plants to maximise crop yield.
