Genetic diversity in the food supply.

A printer-friendly version of this page 26 minutes
Directed by Robert Lang
Produced by Kensington Communications

A concise explanation of the importance of genetic diversity to the world food supply. In third world countries indigenous varieties of food crops are rapidly disappearing from genetically rich areas, replaced by seeds produced by multinational chemical companies, seeds now bred to be dependent on their agrichemicals. The future of our food supply depends on our ability to conserve genetic resources and redirect the goals of today's plant breeding.
