This special two-episode edition takes a deep dive into the science behind InnerPlant with co-founder and chief science officer Rod Kumimoto and head of detection technologies, Ari Kornfeld.

Episode 1 focuses on the plant biology behind the fluorescent signals that InnerPlant’s crops give off when they’re under stress from pathogens or a lack of water or nutrients. Episode 2 focuses on the science involved in detecting InnerPlant’s optical signals in daylight from as far away as space.
