sets you apart from a big Agro breeding
- A knife bolster is the thick section between the handle and the blade, and it
strengthens the knife, and gives better balance and control. However, there is much disagreement
on whether or not it is necessary.
- When was the Institute founded?
- We have a completely different approach. We use classical breeding methods as
opposed to biotechnology. We specialize in quality over yields. This is a paradigm shift in our
thinking of corn being more than a "machine."
Organic and not GMO?
- Because we don't know the side-effects of GM varieties. Organic varieties focus
on quality. It is difficult for organic farmers and consumers who want non-GM food to know what
they are getting. Organic farming methods require hardier corn plants that can withstand weeds
and disease and nourish themselves without the aid of chemical inputs; however, the corn
varieties commercially available to organic farmers are from the same breeding lines that were
developed for high yield on conventional farms using chemical inputs. Mandaamin is working to
enhance the natural capacities of corn so it will perform well in the modern, sustainable
agriculture paradigm. There is a a bigger problem: Contamination of organic corn by GM corn is a
big issue for the entire organic community because it affects so many feed and food products
that permeate our food chain.
- Why Corn?
- Corn is the most productive cereal crop in the world. Nearly 90% of the US corn
crop is genetically engineered. Money is behind the GM approach for multinational seed
companies. This industry has supporters in governments and universities throughout the world. In
universities, scientists are taught that corn is a type of genetic machine that should be
altered and patented in order to reap higher profits. We have a viable alternative at Mandaamin
