Refereed Article in a scientific journal
The worldpopulation grows rapidly: the number of mouths to feed increases. Is ar agriculture without gene technology able to produce sufficiently in order to prevent hunger? Research indicates that hunger is not the result of short comings in agricultural outputs. It is however the result of poverty. This problem will not be solved by gene technology based agricultural production. This article explains the basic principes of mainstream and organic farming. Literature shows that the production potentials of both kinds of farming are, by for most, not yet exhausted. Gene technology, is therefore unnecessary.
