Tomorrow's Table: Organic Farming, Genetics, and the Future of Food


by Pamela C. Ronald & R. W. Adamchak

Authors Ronald and Adamchak are an odd couple: Ronald a Professor of Plant Pathology and a supporter of bioengineering; Adamchak is an organic farmer, and has served on the board, as President and an in-the-field inspector of the California Certified Organic Farmers organization.

Together, this husband and wife team may provide one of the most balanced views of how genetic engineering can not only co-exist with organic farming, but make organic farming healthier, safer, and more efficient. By combining the best techniques of both, Ronald and Adamchak argue that transgenic crops will be able to help solve the growing problems of population and hunger.

The first part of Tomorrow's Table is an excellent introduction to organic farming and biotech, not too technical for non-scientists, but deep enough for those who want to know more about the science involved. The second half digs into the arguments used by the organic community against genetically engineered crops, how they can be, or have been, answered, and make a compelling argument that biotech can benefit the world in a responsible and healthy way.

The first factor to consider when determining what to plant is the amount of sunlight that your garden bed will receive. Many crops require at least five hours of full sun each day to thrive.
