    Genetic Engineering In America

    The United States of America is the largest producer of genetically modified (GM) agricultural products, harvesting about two-thirds (63%) of the world’s GM crops. Yet so many Americans are uninformed of genetic engineering’s presence in the food system, forensic science, developing transgenic animals, production of medicine, and genomics. More than 80% of the soy, 75% of the cotton, and 40% of corn produced in the United States are GM products. Because these crops are the source of some of the most common ingredients used by American food processors, most estimates c

    Our ancient religious texts and epics give a good insight into the water storage and conservation systems that prevailed in those days. Over the years rising populations, growing industrialization, and expanding agriculture have pushed up the demand for water. Efforts have been made to collect water by building dams and reservoirs and digging wells; some countries have also tried to recycle and desalinate (remove salts) water. Water conservation has become the need of the day. The idea of ground water recharging by harvesting rainwater is gaining importance in many ci

When young tomato plants are damaged, they tend to go into a dormant, survival stage in which plant growth is delayed for a while.

Inexorably, a zone is created where there are no fish, no clams, no oysters or any other colonial animal. 466,000 square miles of the Indian continental shelf is dead (Mulvaney, Khan, Ellsworth 2).
