Improving our food supply: Biotech apples and beyond

International Human Press (ITHP), an online news organization that publishes original articles written by industry experts, is currently featuring an article from OSF’s president and founder, Neal Carter.

Per their website, ITHP aims to “focus on educational stories involving science, health, innovative technology” so it’s easy to see why they reached out to Neal for his thoughts on agricultural innovation, especially concerning biotech crops and our nonbrowning Arctic® apples.

“Improving our food supply: Biotech apples and beyond” takes a glimpse into the history of agriculture and concludes it’s a history of innovation. Yet, because consumers in many industrialized countries are enjoying unprecedented food security, there is a danger of complacency in the developed world, particularly as we need to find a way to feed a global population expected to surpass 9 billion by 2050.

Neal explains how ag-biotech can help accomplish this goal, and why biotechnology is just another safe, beneficial tool helping farmers achieve greater efficiency and improved food quality. We encourage you to view the article in full on ITHP right here.
