Organic Farming, Genetics, and the Future of Food

Pamela C. Ronald and Raoul W. Adamchak Beaverton 664 Ron

Interesting information, seemingly contrived stories, and a grating lack of proofreading.

The important message is that organic farming (crop rotation, no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides) and judicious use of genetic engineering can increase yield, food security, and nutrition while decreasing land use and reducing pollution.

Ronald ( BS Reed, MS Uppsala and Stanford, PhD UCB) researches the genetics of immersion tolerant rice (immersion kills weeds), while Adamchak runs the organic farm, both at UC Davis. Two children, Cliff and Audrey, parents Julie and Bill Adamchak, Trish and Robert Ronald.

How about SAGE "Sustainable Agriculture, Genetically Enhanced"
