Boosting food production with limited water availability is of great importance to humanity. Our current water usage is already unsustainable. The fact that plant leaves lose water through photosynthesis is the greatest limiting factor for better harvests. Scientists have developed an approach to solving this: they got plants to use water more efficiently without restricting their growth. This is thanks to a plant-inherent water-conservation strategy.
