Stone Meadow: FTFA: The process required no genetic modification of the crops.Bullshiat...this is EXACTLY what they did to breed this new plant. It wouldn't involve genetic modification if they'd discovered that adding, say additional minerals to the growing soil would increase productivity by 30%. But they didn't do that. Instead they played around with its genetics...they MODIFIED them...to gain the productivity, same as farmers have been doing for eons.What they didn't do is add sea slug genes, or genes from the bladderwort or other unrelated plant to a pre-existing genome. But to claim they didn't do any genetic modification is a bald faced lie.
