Genetic engineering has a place in future food production — report
World Resources Institute lays out a menu for a sustainable food future and highlights importance of boosting yields to feed increasing populations
New York — Like it or not, genetic modification is going to be an important tool to feed the planet’s growing population.
If we want to feed 10-billion people by 2050, in a world beset by rising temperatures and scarcer water supplies, we will need to dramatically change the way we produce food.
