Pamela Ronald is a professor of plant pathology and the chair of the Plant Genomics Program at the University of California, Davis. Raoul Adamchak is an organic farmer and the Market Garden Coordinator of the Student Farm, also at UC Davis.
In their Food for Thought lecture, this married couple explains how some genetically enhanced crops can improve wholesome agricultural productivity and help achieve the low chemical inputs that are the goal of organic agriculture, while others are best avoided altogether.
