How to use vinegar to promote growth of crops in drought regions.
How to use vinegar to promote growth of crops in drought regions. A new study has shown that vinegar can help crops grow in drought regions. The team of researchers from RIKEN, a research institute in Japan, indicates that vinegar could be a drought-fighter. Vinegar, the study finds, might actually help plants survive in drought-like conditions. The researchers set up an experiment, growing plants in simulated drought conditions and treating them with either vinegar or water. The plants treated with only water died, as would be expected of plants in a drought, but the majority of those treated with vinegar survived. The same experiment was run on non-mutated plants, too, and the results were the same—the vinegar treatment works on any plant. more
