drought and pesticides

The articles below are related only because they remind me of discussions I’ve had with my students

– GMOs and Pesticides – yes, use of Genetically Modified Plants does NOT result in a lower use of pesticides, but the reverse

Drought and Climate Change and detection and mitigation (by a prof from my alma mater)


Responses

  1. The sue of genetically modified plants will not only affect the use of pesticides but it will also affect the humanity in more direct ways. The mere use of GMOs already affects the conditions of poor farmers to the benefit of the huge industrial companies.

  2. As for the second article I really hope that the work of Dr. Sankar Arumugam will be applied and humanity will finally put to use the science in a proper manner.
