This talk will put forward a single challenge for materials scientists. How can we build a nanoscale irrigation system from biochar (pyrolyzed biomass) that can be dropped into a hole with every seed and act as a localized water storage and irrigation system. The solution must cost 1/10th the price of the seed.  Immediately after the talk there will be a brown bag lunch to start working on ideas.  Funding is possible. Scaling your results to millions absolutely guaranteed. Come join the fight against climate change.
