Farmers, the food producers, often feel criticized and misunderstood for their use of innovative farming techniques designed to boost yield, preserve soil health and safeguard the environment, all while trying to keep up with the evolving demands of their customers.
Farmers and consumers share common values in food, family and community. There is common ground between food consumers and food producers, at the end of the day, both want quality, wholesome products on New Yorker’s plates.
“Food Evolution” is “a fully independent investigation into the topic of GMOs every step of the way, interviewing experts on both sides of the aisle and including all points of view.” Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have saved crops, provided essential nutrients in formerly deficient staple crops and allowed for huge advances in no-till farming.
