Scientists want ‘rewilded’ crops to boost agriculture. Scientists should “re-wild” food crops by inserting lost genetic properties of ancient, edible plants in order to boost agricultural output for a growing population.
Important properties of wild plants, including varieties of wheat and rice, have been unintentionally lost during thousands of years of breeding. Around 7500 BC, farmers chose to use seeds based on a few selected traits, particularly their yields.
Michael Broberg Palmgren, University of Copenhagen said “We estimate that all crops would benefit from re-wilding.
Is reverse Genetically Modifying Organisms (GMOs) the answer to improving food quality and quantity? Scientists suggest using biotechnology to re-insert desired (lost) genes from wild varieties of popular crops into widely consumed food crops in order to improve food security.
Big Grin. This is going to really screw up all my GMO hating friends.
GMO I hate It..
Reverse GMO I love it..
Which side of this idea are you on?
