New technologies mean better crops
New technologies allow scientists to pinpoint specific genes to replace or delete. This editing allows scientists to improve the taste of tomatoes or lengthen the life of a strawberry. This will make crops better and will benefit both growers and consumers. The aim of this type of breading means heartier crops, more predictable yields and fewer pesticides. Gene edited crops are already on the market including a browning resistant mushroom and an improved potato.
