"Hence a Co-ordinated [sic] Research Project on In
vitro[sic] Techniques for Selection of Radiation Induced Mutations Adapted to Adverse
was initiated and focused primarily on the improvement of
vegetatively[sic propagated plants.
i already know about this Monsanto is funding much of the research and development and many of the genetically mutated vegetables are already in the market, but what you should be asking yourself is why are they trying to produce plants that are adapted to adverse environmental conditions using radiation? Could it be the problem is
USE YOUR HEAD BEFORE YOU POST
Mutation techniques in combination with tissue culture methods provide a powerful
technology to improve clonally [sic]propagated plants. The in vitro culture of vegetatively[sic]
propagated crops in combination with radiation induced mutations has proven to be an
invaluable method to produce desired variation and to rapidly multiply the selected mutants and
parental material in a disease-free condition. It is possible to upgrade well established clones by
changing specific traits by inducing mutations. The availability of large populations for
mutagenesis [sic]is one of the basic per-requisites to obtain sufficient variation. The in vitro
techniques provide the mechanism to generate large populations for mutation induction,
selection and rapid multiplication of the selected mutants."

What this say essentially is they are using radiation to produce radiation resistant plants. It backs up what I've been saying here.
Anyone with a brain to think and eyes to see, and five senses for that matter, realizes things are changing. This year we lost many 400 year old trees due to unprecedented drought and heat. More ear and less lip, I strongly recommend.
The technique describe d in the poorly written article basically states that researchers are growing plants in elevated radiation environments and cloning the few plants plants that have an unusual resistance to radiation inan attempt to develop radiation resistant crops. I highly suggest you find another line of work, you suck at this one. Did you answer the adds on 'Mythbusters'? I bet you schooled through the internet at Phoenix university, correct>?
. It is true the radiation resistant crops are being developed this way, but WHY?
