    Pretty cool, because there should be much less fertilizer runoff, both from reduced fertilizer and more efficient use of what fertilizer is used. This will really help with the ocean dead zones found around the world. The main U.S. dead zone is in the Gulf of Mexico and is huge.

    All of us who have even a small connection with agriculture should take note of this. I don't understand the technology, but making agriculture more efficient is definitely what we need.

    Great story and great to hear about family entrepreneurs!! Here's hoping this technology
    really takes off. Great for farmers and great for a Utah company

    “'By 2050, studies project that the world will have to feed 9.7 million [sic] mouths,' points out Clark Bell.”

    Yikes! Just 9.7 **million** by 2050!? That's less than the city of Tokyo today!

    I guess they're counting on an apocalypse by then. :o(

    If the world's population really does drop by that much then my guess is that increased crop yields using this nano tech. will be the last thing on their minds.

    Or, maybe, Clark actually meant to say "Billion", with a "B", in which case they'd have a much better market. :o)
