Modern plant breeding has led to a green revolution, but despite its many benefits, it has also led to the erosion of the genetic base for future breeding. In this fascinating step-by-step account, the origins of agriculture are traced, and the development, value and loss of diversity is made clear. Plant and gene patenting, the market role of international companies, and the opportunities of monopolisation are explained.
