New seed technology

Technology isn't just with electronics these days. There is a lot of research and advancements in the agriculture field also. There is a lot of varying opinions these days about organic food, food grown on steroids, and genetically altered food, many people begin to wonder about the food they are eating. I was reading about one company, Monsanto, which produce genetically modified plant seeds that are a great for farmers for various reasons. They are not affected by various weed killing formulas, and they keep bugs and pests away much better than regular seeds do.These are not the only benefits, though, and check into their company for other benefits if you are interested. All these qualities combine for a great looking seed to a farmer, so they have been doing great in their business.

I think this is a good idea for a company to produce, and I don't see any problems with the seeds they produce. Many people are not approving of this, and they say it is unhealthy and unnatural, but I think we should use the technology we currently have to make the best of our agricultural field. They may not be healthy possibly, but what is these days? This company isn't doing this great for nothing. It makes the farmers' jobs easier, and it also helps supply the growing population with food, so I think it is a great idea.
