to control better control the duration, intensity and spectrum of the light the plants receive. Because of this LEDs are being looked into replacing HID and HPS lamps, in high density farming and being the soil light source for high value specialty crops. The author questioned what processes in plants would be affected by LED lighting and what would be optimum growing conditions for LED. To answer this the paper went into depth of the two main processes of photoreceptors and photosynthesis.
explains to people why they need to know about GMO foods and their labels. The goal of this research paper is to let customers know that using genetically modified organisms can harm the body to some extent; it could possibly harm the environment, and it could drive up the cost of grocery prices. Genetically modified organisms are created in a laboratory. They alter the genetic makeup of different plants and animals so they can produce more food for consumers. Many people don’t really know if the
for everyone to understand and this topic came to mind while finding a page online called Consumer Reports, which is base from, a magazine. This page explains to people why they need to know about GMO foods and their labels. The goal of this research paper is to let customers know that using genetically modified organisms can harm the body to some extent; it could possibly harm the environment, and it could drive up the cost of grocery prices.
Research Assignment on unacceptable residues of antibiotics in fisheries product I. INTRODUCTION After the creation of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) in 1947 , the fast-forward of globalization and rapid growth of technology are the main reason that facilitates trading process much more conveniently. Cross-border trade is not an unusual subject in this current time. In fact, trading globally has various advantages directly to consumers and contracting parties such as opportunity
biological products.” Genetically modified organisms are also known as transgenic organisms. There are many uses for genetic modification. Genetic modification is devoted mainly to the increased use of herbicides and pesticides. Most research is focused on plants to be able to produce their own pesticide to kill insects and to remain alive when sprayed by weed killers. Profit is the main motive of using genetically modified organisms. There are six broad steps to genetically modifying organisms
of the most dramatic and prevalent alterations in plant genetics. “Corn, or maize, began as a wild grass called teosinte that had tiny ears with very few kernels” (Rangel). Thus, the information scientists gathered from these sites depicts that people in Southwest Asia were cross pollinating different corn plants so they would have more and bigger kernels in 7800 BCE. I for one always believed that the process of manipulating other animals or plant genes was a more modern discovery and would’ve never
progress this number is expected to double within twenty five to thirty years as it raises daily. Over the years, the agricultural field has changed dramatically. Most farmers and businesses who are specialize in food production utilize pesticides and hormones to mass produce the food we eat. While these processed are great for business, it is harmful for the human body. It is for this reason that people must be conscious about what they consume. As the inhabitants in America increase, the population of
This paper begins by providing key information and terms for the argument to provide a basic understand of concepts of the key differences between organic foods and GMOs. The topics discussed in this paper will include, but will not be limited to: safety regarding human consumption, regulatory controls, and how these two different products are produced. To provide an overview of these important topics, a distinct contrast will be made. The paper concludes with an overview of the topics discussed
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) – The controversy Ileana Banisor Chamberlain College of Nursing GMOs – The controversy In January 2015, the internet exploded with the news that doctors confirm the first human death officially caused by GMO’s. Juan Pedro Ramos from Madrid, Spain died from anaphylaxis after eating some recently developed tomatoes containing fish genes, which triggered a violent and lethal allergic reaction (Johnson, 2015). The case was confirmed with an autopsy
provide good quality food for the consumers. This is where the technology of plant tissue culture steps in. As Lineberger (n.d) mentions, plant tissue culture can contributes to the agriculture industry in the future and give advantageous to the growers because the mass production of plant and crops can be produced in a short period of time using the tissue collected from single parent plant. He also include that the plant can be maintained and monitored in the regulated environment like greenhouse
