The new strains and techniques have generated remarkable growth in yields.

Interesting stuff. I remember in high school being told the world's population growth was limited by food production and since there were only a fixed amount of arable land there would be a disaster. Without the green revolution, an awful lot of people would have starved.

jhill icon NEW: Funny you bring that up. I just watched a video where farmers yes farmers are being held hostage by their tractors.

pangloss icon NEW: I saw video somewhere about copyrighted seeds. Farmers can't legally save some of their crop for planting next season and nearly everything that's grown or sold is copyrighted. (nm)

96GradAlum icon NEW: Those yield numbers likely come at an expense, at least for wheat. GMO wheat contains the gluten protein. The health affects of that on the population are really only starting to be discovered. (nm)

GUBA icon NEW: Wheat, Barley, Rye, etc. all contain gluten. It is not something unique to GMO crops. Gluten is what gives bread dough its elasticity. (nm)

GUBA icon NEW: Well as the link says Hybridization is not the same as GMO. It may be that hybridization has triggered some increased gluten intolerance in some people but I have read a lot of material about this and it seems like most of the "research" is anecdotal

96GradAlum icon NEW: And that is a reasonable position and one I might also side with if I hadn't seen some positive benefits from going gluten-free myself. (nm)

GUBA icon NEW: It is always spelled out in the seed contract. When the farmer chooses to grow a GMO crop the contract will specify that they must sell all of the crop back to the seed company. My uncle often grows GMO Canola and the contract is that they will buy

96GradAlum icon NEW: I think you're downplaying Monsantos tactics. They are way worse than this characterization ...

GUBA icon NEW: While it is true that Monsanto are giant douche barges in how they operate they can only bully those who are trying to use their copyrighted genes. Seed competitors are welcome to develop (and are developing for that matter) their own genes or seed
