Some interesting links for GMO-relevant news floating around at the moment:
Crop breeding is not keeping pace with climate change – University of Leeds researchers published a paper ‘Current warming will reduce yields unless maize breeding and seed systems adapt immediately‘.
Seeds, Syrup and Subversion – a BBC World Service programme with a debate about corporate control and Big Ag, available on listen again.
Results of Bt eggplant field trials – looks good scientifically, although regulation in the Philippines may make that irrelevant…
Silenced Crops kickstarter campaign – interesting to see a crowdfunding campaign for a positive genetic modification story. This time it is to make a documentary about GM papaya in Venezuela.
