Photographer Jesse Rieser for The Wall Street Journal

Jesse photographed a story about a 70 foot tall, 30 ton, robotic field scanner that scrutinizes and collects data from a two acre farm in the Arizona desert to study plant genetics in high heat.  The goal of this project is to create stress resilient crops that can withstand climate change and serve as bio fuels and food.
