This just proves that soil health is very important to the growth of whats planted. Monoculture will be the death of us. We have the capability along with ingenuity to grow food without resorting to monoculture. Current practices only ensure pest dominance developing resistance to any pesticides we continue to manufacture. Natural predators will continually avoid areas sprayed with pesticide creating pest dominance. I know we are capable of creating a way of farming that integrates practices that serve both our needs while weaving these to be harmonious to the fundamental aspects of nature.
There is a quote for which I’m very fond of and it is ,
“We are never moved to search for answers for which we already believe we know the answer” ..
I am completely AGAINST any form of ‘genetic’ modification. Whatever excuses you come up with are crap! Humans actually believe that whatever THEY decide to do is OK for the rest of our fellow creatures on this planet. NO. Nature Bats Last. You can genetically alter whatever you want to and believe that ‘humans’ are the smartest creatures on the planet, but you will be incorrect!! Once ‘man’ has devastated this planet and go off to kill another planet, THIS planet will slowly regenerate itself into what the PLANET needs. The planet doesn’t NEED people, but people need the planet. We need to learn to live WITHIN this natural system NOT human-manipulate it!! Quit!!!
I don’t think this is quite genetic manipulation. I agree with you in the sense that we should be cautious about the concentration of metal especially in the fruit itself. Also, I think we should work on correcting the problem of climate change rather than spending all our time preparing to live in a world affected by climate change; however there are real world obstacles we must face.
