Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new biochemical technique for increasing terpenoid yield in plants by up to 130-fold. Plants use this chemical to acclimate to their environments, and as the environment continues to change, terpenoid may help to ensure crop stability. In carefully evaluating factors that contribute to genetic overexpression in plants, new genetic codes have been adapted to promote wild-type plants. Researchers have discovered that wild-type plants overproduce terpenoid, which is ideal because it enhances plant growth, promotes plant health, and helps plants to adapt to stress. This unique approach to crop management can be implemented for plants including rice, wheat, spinach, grapes, pineapples, mangoes, sorghum, and more.
