Crop design & Climate change

04 Sep 2015 5:46 PM | John Heap (Administrator)

Is climate change happening? Yes.


Is it man's fault - down to greenhouse 'emissions'? Possibly,


It does not matter what the cause is - we have to accept it is happening.


There are  lots of implications - some of them potentially catastrophic.


Some parts of the world that are currently the world's bread (or fruit) baskets may end up with much lower yields unless they can introduce new varieties of the crops they produce.


So, we might need genetic engineering to maintain yields in areas of changing climate.


Can man's ingenuity and innovation beat climate change?


We have to hope so.
