Virtually every sweet potato ever eaten from cultivated crops, for thousands of years, naturally and organically produced, is transgenic (i.e. a GMO). It’s just that the hand of man did not do the modifying, rather the hand of Gaia/God/you_name_it.
Citrus greening is caused by an invasive bacteria from Asia and is decimating American citrus production. Now, GMO techniques have a good chance of saving the day. Kudos to the EPA in making an “exception” to fast track the use of these two proteins from spinach.
