It all starts with a seed! There is an exceptional variety of food-producing plants available for our farms and gardens. Unfortunately, industrial agriculture relies heavily on a small number of crops with low genetic diversity, and increasingly on crops that are genetically modified in laboratories.

The systemic approach is a method of breeding plant varieties that are hearty and resistant to all forms of stress, such as disease and drought. In the systemic approach, traditional principles of plant breeding are used, though the plants are subjected to a wide range of stresses, and only the most resistant plants are selected for continued breeding. The systemic approach offers a promising alternative to GMO’s, and it produces results that go beyond our expectations.
