Discuss: The Future of our Food
« on: 25/06/2009 12:29:10 »
This week we dig into into the science of farming and food production. We find out how transgenic plants can help us dispense with the need for chemical pesticides and how giant greenhouses at the shoreline can be home to super-efficient farms of their own. We explore the problems faced by our sweet honey bee and in Kitchen Science we do some plant modification of our own; no transgenics knowledge needed, just food colouring.
