Cultivation of biotech crops, engineered to resist pests and withstand herbicides, has helped maximize crop production on dozens of wildlife refuges.
That quote above is hogwash. "Biotech" has not out produced organic farming. In fact, the continued use of such biotech systems results in ever-lower yields along with all the other damage done to the environment by such methods.
The problem so far with such biotech is that the companies involved have created their systems without proper and adequate testing. They do not operate via the precautionary principle, which principle should be the law of the land.
