MIT innovators under 35

« Climate change is not only threatening to elevate the global temperature but also to alter precipitation patterns, both in terms of quantity and frequency. The meteorological conditions in agricultural regions are changing, and local species that live in moderate climates with light rain patterns are beginning to suffer prolonged periods of drought, often followed by torrential rains, which limit crop yields. To help crops to adapt to this new climate, the young Belgian Guillaume Wegria has developed a bio-stimulant that has placed him amongst the winners of MIT Technology Review´s Innovator Under 35 Belgium 2016 awards.
