Inspired by a wrong answer given by rr (rhoitrau) to this question. You get the GQHero trophy: , nevertheless! :)

What are these genetically modified plants capable of detecting?

They turn red when they “detect” something.

Answer:

These GM plants detect NO2 which generally seeps into the soil from land-mines, thus acting as a land-mine detector!

    Red when they detect NO2, which frequently leaches into soil from landmines.


  2. thale-cress which detects land mines

    Landmines , when roots of these GMO flowers hit nitrogen dioxide (which leaches into the soil from buried land mines), the plant changes .

    Land mine detecting plants

    these so called bio-sensors developed by Aresa turn red when they detect nitrogen-dioxide in the soil. quoting:
    “The explosive inside the landmine contains material that releases NO2 (Nitrogen dioxide) when it has been in the ground for a period of time.

    The NO2 moves through the soil and is absorbed by the mine plant, where it starts the production of a red compound. This causes the leaves of the plant to turn red.”

    they are used in Landmine detection.
    When the roots of these GMO flowers hit nitrogen dioxide (which leaches into the soil from buried land mines), the plant changes color.

    It detects landmines. But how do you plant it?


  25. Landmines. Technically, oxides of Nitrogen. Go red when detect them.


  26. Also, why aren’t you updating the scores? Please do so quickly! I have never performed so well on Boiledbeans since I joined in 2007!
