Publisher's Description
'Seeds' is about Darwin’s natural selection and how it has been overtaken by high-tech plant breeding which in essence accelerates evolution. The book focuses on new food crops that are resistant to pests and diseases, and are bred to contribute significantly to our future food supply. This evokes quintessential questions. Who is actually in charge on this planet? Nature? Human beings? A god? Should humans stop interfering with evolution and go back to the authenticity of small-scale farms and city farming? Or rather, is it humanity’s duty to steer evolution so that we can create enough food to feed the booming world population?
