RE:>>World wide trading and industry agriculture ... can it be sustainable?

Good afternoon (evening) Arnhild,
This is a wonderful and excellent question. The answer is yes.  However, not without bumps in the road, or without standards that are internationally applied.  And then the third world countries suffer because standards are so expensive to enforce--all exporting and importing countries have to have the same kind of testing equipment and trained personnel to perform the tests.  What a mess.

We are gaining on it, however.  But let's not go backwards and ban GMO grain.  The next major breakthrough might be a cure for cancer from GMO rice.

Thanks for your thought provoking post.
