A new weed-killing spray designed to wipe out plants in the desert, a desert-specific crop, might be a good bet for the global food security crisis, scientists report.
The research, conducted by researchers at the University of California, Davis, and the University at Buffalo, is published in the journal Science Advances.
The scientists’ research suggests that the spray can help kill pests in the dry desert, but also that it can also help the plants to recover in the summer.
“It’s a really exciting discovery, and it opens up new possibilities,” said the lead author of the study, James A. Johnson, a plant ecologist at the U.C. Davis Botanical Garden.
“There are so many possible applications for this spray, and we’re working on a few of them.”
The spray uses nitrogen to kill plant spores, which produce the chemicals needed to make the plant resistant to a range of weeds.
But the spray doesn’t kill the plants directly.
Instead, it allows the plant to survive the effects of sunlight and wind, and also helps the plants produce the plant’s own nitrogen, which can then be released back into the environment.
A previous study by the same team found that a spray designed for the desert could work in other parts of the world, but it didn’t prove that it would work in the deserts.
This new study suggests that this could be the case in places like the U-S-West desert in Mexico.
The spray is designed to kill the spores in plants in a three-step process: the plant absorbs the nitrogen, the plants then secrete a protective coating of protein, and then the spray releases the nitrogen.
The researchers wanted to find out whether the spray could kill the plant spores and their protective coating in a different way.
They began by testing the spray on a variety of plant species, including desert-dwelling shrubs, grasses and other plants.
“We were looking at a wide range of species, and each one was a good model to try out the spray,” Johnson said.
“A lot of the time, we don’t know exactly what the effects are on plants, so we tried different varieties and then evaluated the effectiveness of each one.
We found that the effect was the same for all the species.”
Johnson and his colleagues then tested the spray against a plant species that can tolerate the nitrogen-tolerant plant-borne spores.
The team found the spray worked very well in these plants, and they also found that when the spray was applied in combination with the plant itself, the plant survived the effects.
The effect worked against a variety the scientists have yet to identify, but Johnson said it would be a significant improvement over current methods.
He said the spray has shown it works well in the Mojave Desert, where the plants are native to, but not common.
It has also shown it can work in a number of other locations, including the Andes and the Andean Amazon, and in tropical climates such as the Caribbean.
The study, the first of its kind, also found the plant could be used in the southernmost part of the U, including parts of Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico.
Johnson and colleagues hope to expand their spray to other locations around the world.
Johnson is currently looking for other countries to test the spray.
“Hopefully we can test it in other places, too,” Johnson added.
“I think the spray is going to be a great way to help combat drought, and a great tool to help support the environment, and provide some economic benefits.”
