In Brazil, ARS plant physiologist Greg Glenn (right) and ARS botanist De Wood (center) inspect composite materials that contain plant fiber with Luiz Mattoso, director of the EMBRAPA Agricultural Instrumentation Center in São Carlos. One composite was used to make small tubes in which tree seedlings are grown and then planted in an automated process. The containers slowly degrade in the soil after planting.
