Book of the Month, Nov./Dec. 2018 - Seeds of Science

November/December 2018 – Seeds of Science

You voted! Our November/December 2018 AgBookClub pick is Seeds of Science: Why We Got It So Wrong on GMOs by Mark Lynas. Lynas, who formerly opposed GMOs, admitted in 2013 that he had it all wrong. This book outlines GMO technology, why he previously questioned GMOs, and why he thinks genetic modification has a future in agriculture.
