#4 The “debate” continues…
Cohen’s article with the catchy title “Decolonizing the GMO debate” claims `scuba rice’ is a GMO.
A former IRRI Board member tells me it isn’t. It was developed from a traditional rice variety by breeding using Marker Assisted Selection. There’s an IRRI account in RiceToday Vol. 3, No. 3, 2004. I remember visiting trial sites and farmers’ fields on a field trip to Odisha – it looks miraculous after heavy flooding.
Very true, missed that, thanks for picking it up. Have tweeted about it.
