Presented by: Sam Malriat, Director, Organic Consulting
The development of genetically engineered crops in the United States allowed for a drastic increase in overall crop yields and productivity. However, it also set off a cascade of consequences that, to this day, continues to affect our health, our food system, sensitive off-target organisms, and the environment.
Join us to explore the roots of genetic engineering, its development over time, and understand how it is used today. This lecture presented by Rodale Institute’s Director of Organic Consulting, Sam Malriat, seeks to share impartial information about genetic engineering so attendees can leave with a balanced perspective on its role in agriculture and more effectively discuss it with their peers.
