GM and organic farming: Adversaries or comrades in the fight against malnutrition?

View the Zentation presentation (video with slides) here

This is my first submission to SiloBusters, the interdisciplinary idea sharing network.

The organic farming movement is strongly opposed to genetically modified crops. I argue that the two philosophies are actually very compatible. An alliance between GM and organic farming could secure a nutritious and sustainable food supply for the world's rapidly growing population.

Many nutrition, sustainable development and global philanthropic groups; however, do not agree with the activists. Helen Keller International (HKI), the Gates Foundation and IRRI are working together on biofortification in support of Golden Rice. See:
