I hope to be studying Plant science at the university of Nottingham, and the idea of food security greatly interests me. With a growing global population, food security has become a very important issue, greater yields of crops are going to be needed in order to feed this population. Also with an ever changing climate the need for more “hardy” crops has become a real issue. With droughts and other drastic climate extremes, resistant crops are needed.
The subject of Genetic modification is also one that is very relevant and heated. Many people are passionate on this topic and show very strong views.
Therefore I believe it to important topic to blog about.
