For thousands of years, farmers and researchers used traditional breeding methods to develop many of the domesticated crops we enjoy today.

These traits can make the crop heartier and healthier, add higher levels of vitamins, or provide a longer shelf-life after harvest _ the opportunities are endless.How a Biotech Crop is Created
