Re: "AND ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST" a song


Paul,

I was not trying to be all inclusive, but to give some examples.  It might
interest you to know that a major component of drought resistance (which I
did mention) is aluminum tolerance.  I have a good friend that is working on
using conventional breeding techniques to develop aluminum tolerance in
soybeans.  Aluminum tolerant soybeans are more drought tolerant.  It is not
feasible to lime many tropical soils.
