Researchers fuels innovation when funded

Abstract:
Nanotechnology may be key to biofuel and food safety developments
Spring is the best time of the year for me and I think it is for farmers as well. There is something about the green of the grass and wheat in the fields, the leaves sprouting and now finally the blooms filling the trees that is so full of hope and promise that I can't help but be optimistic.

It's good to have a sense of optimism once in awhile because frankly there are some issues out there that require it. Recently a couple of hot topics have come to the forefront again and for me they are linked. Each one could have history-making implications for U.S. agriculture. I'll tell you up front that the link for me is technology and specifically nanotechnology, an area I've looked into and written about many times.
