Resources for One Book One LCC - TomatolandAuthor: Mindy Babarskis. Advances in science, many of them from scientists at USDA or through research funded by USDA, have opened up new options for farmers responding to market needs and environmental challenges.

Many new plant varieties being developed or grown by farmers have been produced using genetic engineering, which involves manipulating the plant's genes through techniques of modern molecular biology often. I ordered this book in order to read about factory farming (in this case in the USA).

It is mostly about protests and litigation against large factory farms which dump animal sewage into rivers and streams, causing the death of fish, etc. and about the horrible odours that plague people living close to such farms/5(51). Biotechnology. Biotechnology is an important tool for better sustainability and food security.

It helps farmers grow more food while improving the environment. For example, biotechnology reduces the use of costly inputs and improves weed management, allowing farmers to reduce tillage for better soil, water and air quality. read more.
