AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Ingenuity combines with science at the Arkansas State university of the Biosciences Institute. R&D, in conjunction with Virginia Tech, headed Dr Lorence, is progressing to find varieties of wheat and rice that will grow and thrive in a rise in temperatures. Their research is necessary. With every rise in temperature, wheat and rice crops decrease 6-10%. 10 years ago, when I visited Technion University, in Haifa, Israel, we visited a bio fuel plant, Canola plants were raised in the desert to supply bio fuels, leaving corn for food consumption and people. Israel also grows most vegetables in a saline solution. Can we adapt? We can’t afford not to adapt to this hotter environment. Kudos to Dr Lorence at the Arkansas State University.
