Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Ugly is in the eye of the observer

Is It Time t Time?

In my opinion the significant threat from SRO's in the agriculture industry is not from direct consumption by humans but rather from the very very bad way these crops are being deployed.

In Canada for instance there are less than 6 strains of SR canola that account for the majority of the canola we produce. I wouldn't even be surprised if those 6 strains all have almost exactly the same genetic stock.

So, am I the only one who thinks that's a really bad idea? What exactly is going to happen when a virus or microbe or something comes along that wipes out that strain?

I'l tell you what's going to happen. we're all going to starve.

A half-dozen strains of canola is not a viable genetic stock for the long term.

Maybe Monsanto hasn't heard of evolution and genetic diversity.
