I keep getting asked about genetic engineering and really don't have a good
answer, would you please help?
Are hybrid varieties of seeds genetically engineered?
When Michelle Miller talked about reduced synthetic chemical use, she said
using disease resistant varieties--are these naturally occurring or
Using "old varities" of seeds, crop rotations, no-til or minimum till is it
possible to get the same yields as with hybrid varities--in corn, for example?
I hope that I am not the proverbial "can of worms," I would like to be able
to answer the negativism I encounter with something other than "I really
can't answer that question."
