Abstract

Our ability to bioengineer insect and viral resistance, biofortify crops for enhanced nutrition, create edible vaccines and, improve photosynthesis for greater yield is being hindered by one controversial application of bioengineering: herbicide tolerance. Grow More Foundation’s mission is EAT – education, awareness, and transparency. We are an NGO comprised of internationally-recognized scientists enabling science to solve global agricultural problems by bridging developed world resources with developing world orphan crop staples. We also promote a global open dialogue on food insecurity and sustainability with society, regulatory bodies and industry.
