Beta Carotene and Plants
Name: Adrienne S.
My question has two parts. The first of these parts is
to ask about any information you have regarding Beta Carotene. Next I
wanted to know if Beta Carotene had anything to do with a plant's immune
system, either good or bad. I truly appreciate your efforts.
The following should be helpful
beta-carotene is a pigment (coloring) well known in carrots
It is a source of vitamin A
There has been some research in the area you were asking about.
