Water-trapping beads prevent crops from rotting in humid countries

Researchers have found an economical way to prevent humidity from destroying crops in both small and large scale agricultural operations. Small beads made from a porous mineral called zeolite absorb water molecules, preventing fungal toxins from growing on seeds and grain in developing countries. The beads prove to be less expensive, time-consuming, and resource-dependent than more common farming practices. Zeolite beads, developed by Rhino Research in Thailand, have been specially...
