BLINK technology published

A team at the University of Glasgow has developed a technology which enables plants to better use water resources and enhance photosynthetic efficiency.  The approach accelerates the kinetics of stomatal opening and closure, thus promoting a rapid transition to carbon assimilation under high-light light intensities, while maintaining plant water status when carbon demand is low.  PBL has patented the technology on behalf of the University of Glasgow and is offering licences to the crop industry.
