- Thread-topic: Crops without water?
I received the following message from a friend who is interested in
agriculture in dry climates. I'm guessing that some of you can answer
her question more thoroughly than I can. I especially thought that
there should be some interesting information about restoring the use of
traditional crops in these areas.
Any information you might have would be helpful.

Do you know anything about drought-resistent crops?
I know some folks with ["Friends of"] the World Food
Programme, and will be contacting them as well as
investigating academic sources of info, but I thought
that maybe you might have heard if there was any new
and interesting developments in this area.
I don't know if g.m. seeds are the only current answer
or if there are other options, (and I don't really
mind g.m. agriculture if it feeds starving people) but
am very curious to learn about the subject.
I'm *considering* an academic/volunteer trip to
Ethiopia next year, and in view of the severe
weather/food crisis there, coupled with my personal
passion for gardening/agriculture, I think that
working with some effort to develop and maintain
sustainable sources of food would be an awesome
So let me know if you have any insight into this!
Thanks and Happy Halloween,
