One of the biggest problems of modern world is agriculture. Population of the world is currently growing. Unevenly distributed population and increase in the number of large cities are just a couple of the causes of the world's problems with hunger and bad nutrition. That is one of the reasons why major companies are building skyscrapers where they will cultivate plants which are needed in daily nutrition. As there are so many people living in very small area, these plants need to be cultivated quickly.
Plants can not increase their growth speed, so we wanted to find a solution. Genetic therapy was not considered as it is very expensive. We came up with an idea to treat seeds with non-thermal plasma, as it is very easy to produce it.
We are participating in #scichallenge2017 in hope to contribute to the development of agricultural engineering with our work.
