How does the genetic improvement of fruits, grains and vegetables work

With the progress of science, species-breeding techniques guarantee cultivation conditions and ensure the continuous supply of more resistant plants and more nutritious foods

Since ancient times, primitive men have grown plants that provide food, seasoning and medicines. The first practical actions consisted of  collecting, storing and planting seeds and seedlings to plant them nearby and plan the harvest. But new techniques decode the characteristics of the species and cross the right genes to generate seedlings that are more resistant to environmental adversities, with more quality and in greater quantity, favoring agriculture and ensuring the nutrition of animals and humans.
