An acquaintance who knows a bit about organic farming and conventional farming and GMO techniques tells me that scientists have been able to take a gene from the barley and stick it in the wheat … and by doing so to irrigate wheat would require 1/8 as much water as conventional wheat requires. Perhaps instead of the Bureau of Reclamation and the Army Corp trying to make the desert “bloom like a rose” they should be supporting research that helps figure out how to grow crops when natural rainfall is lower than 10 inches per year.
