    Ed, an excellent take on how embracing or shunning GM technology can impact food production in developing nations. When comparing agricultural productivity in South America and Africa, there is one other crticial difference: the soil. In the ‘pampas’ farmers happily show off a rich almost-black soil, as a crop grower’s formula for success. The beauty of technnology, however, is that it could serve as an equalizer where geology or climate fails to lend a hand.
