Beyond GMO … the REAL answer to healthy, disease resistant crops

Down in Mexico, two plant scientists, despite lack of funding and support, are staging a true green revolution. By using a strategy called horizontal resistance to breed bean plants with broad genetic resistance to diseases and pests, they are outperforming GMO and commercial crop varieties … without the need for pesticides! This is a must read piece. Be patient with the science and you’ll be richly rewarded.
