If you had a magic wand that could make the world less hungry, what would you do? That’s the question David Kramer, professor of Photosynthesis and Bioenergetics at Michigan State University, is trying to answer. Kramer and his team have made a magic wand of sorts, the MultispeQ, a handheld device that measures a plant’s health.
98 percent of farms are less than ten acres, according to David Kramer, professor of Photosynthesis and Bioenergetics at Michigan State University.
“They don’t have access to these things, and how do we bring these tools to them?” Kramer said.
In this episode Kramer talks about his technology and the importance of getting tools like the MultispeQ in the hands of farmers.
