Texas A&M researchers believe the development of climate-smart crops is the key to improving nitrogen-use efficiency and reducing fertilizer nitrogen loss in agricultural fields. The crops would have the ability to suppress soil nitrification and have reduced nitrogen emissions, says Nithya Rajan, Texas A&M AgriLife Research crop physiologist and principal investigator in College Station.
