NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb.
A new "supercorn" with eight genetic modifications that make it even more highly resistant to insects and weed killers than earlier versions is just one of the agricultural developments Americans will see over the next several years as scientific advances enable technicians to customize crop plants with stacks of genes, biotechnology expert Clive James said.
Scientists discovered seeds from certain genetically modified crops can endure soil for at least 10 years in some cases. Critics say this shows that genetically modified organisms cannot be contained once released.
