Scientists see a natural place for ‘rewilded’ plants in organic farming

28 mayo 2015

One key element of organic agriculture is that it rejects unpredictable technologies, such as genetic engineering. But what if adding a gene from undomesticated plants to bring back a natural trait isn’t unpredictable? Researchers present a case for using precise genetic engineering technologies to ‘rewild’ crops in a way that would make organic farming more efficient, and thus more profitable.
