Living Sensor Plants
InnerPlant makes genetically-adapted living sensor plants that signal when they’re thirsty or sick. We are developing a variety of living sensor plants. Our current crop offerings are the following:
How it Works
InnerPlant codes signaling capabilities into plants’ DNA, transforming fields into living sensors.
Plants communicate when stressed
We code signaling capabilities into plants’ DNA to create fluorescent proteins in leaves when stressed
Different fluorescent colors indicate different problems – drought, pathogens, nutrient deficiency
Invisible to the eye, signals can be detected from as far as satellites
