The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). Plant-like life has been around for about 3000 million years. They have witnessed the birth and death of species, have travelled acrosscontinents on the heels of explorers, seeded cultures around the world and maysoon become the first species to colonise mars. Humans have tamed them in farms, laboratories and green houses and extracted cures to epidemics as well as sources of addiction. We can only imagine what the plants of the future will look like as we race towards editable genomes, bionics and Food for All!
