Second Green Revolution--Feeding the World via Root Science

In 1970, Norman Borlaug won the Nobel Peace Prize "for his contributions to the 'green revolution' that was having such an impact on food production."  It's estimated that his discoveries in plant science saved one billion lives.  Today's guest Jonathan Lynch says we are in need of another plant science breakthrough to fuel a second Green Revolution.  The world's soils are getting worse but research into root systems is helping to increase crop yields despite many challenges.
