The ongoing debate for genetic engineering in agriculture has offered a new challenge for biotech engineers and scientists in growing GM sugar beets and releasing it to a wider market. In fact, a recent contamination incident involving gmo sugar beets might have to be the biggest challenge yet that it has to face. Do You Know This Danger Involved in Genetic Engineering in Agriculture? Agriculture is one of the most r
National Research Council in Canada has proposed the development of genetically modified wheat in the country, especially with the low productivity level and inability to adapt to various farming situations by Canadian wheat farmers. However, this proposition was met with a lot of disapproval by the wheat farmers themselves and the community in general. The intense climate change that is being experienced in Canada h
One major area of debate amongst those that are pro genetically modified food against those that strongly oppose it concerns the intellectual property rights of farmers. This has been discussed as part of the ongoing debate on the consequences of approving production of genetically modified plants. During the initial review process, potential problems of monopolization and inability for farmers to own rights to the c
Genetically engineered potatoes are one of the fastest growing produce in the field of genetic engineering in agriculture. Indeed, the spread of GE food has reached even the most basic of food supplies and is slowly making its way onto the dinner tables of consumers. Like most other vegetables and crops that were genetically modified, the purity of organic potatoes is also being threatened on an international level.
Greenpeace is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to protecting and preserving the resources of the environment. Hence, it comes as no surprise when they are ones of the first few to voice their disagreement to genetic engineering of food due to its potential risks on the environment. Greenpeace chapters from various parts of the world had been persistent in showing their resistance on GMO plants, especially
