Application to locate Landmines?

Posted by AndyGee on 14 Feb 2011 at 23:39 GMT

I hope my comment is appropriate here. I just heard your Interview on CBC Radio. I was wondering if your findings could be applied in aiding detection and locating of landmines. Could the plants be seeded over a large mined area and display the location of explosives in the ground?
