Back from St Louis

We toured Monsanto yesterday. It was quite interesting to learn more about plant breeding/gene splicing. I took one thing away from the tour. All the high tech stuff still leaves the plant breeder with a hit an miss method. It just increases the number of swings you can take and speeds up the testing.

Monsanto did little to alleviate my concerns about glyphosate resistance.
